I was probably overconfident

Guessing Armillaria because
- stipe mostly covered with white crap, with pink and yellow tinges, scraping off to look brown and woody
- white fuzziness on the young caps
- mature caps look slightly scaly (not sure about that)
- brown pits and edge splitting on the cap look consistent with Armillaria

but I can’t find any that look quite like this so maybe something else, Stropharia or Pholiota or mixed collection or ?

Not trying

to be cute; trying to learn. At first I thought why Armillaria? I can see how it could be Armillaria but given the fuzzy photos of the cap and stem, no pics of gills, lack of field notes it seemed it could belong to any number of genera: Floccularia maybe? Or a brown spored genus perhaps?


Jacob, what makes Armillaria
