Support for A. mellea

If memory serves material from the tree this particular individual was collected from was sent to Tom Volk when he was studying Armillaria. It mated with what they considered to be Armillaria mellea although I understand that the interface on the petri disk was somewhat unusual. To the best of my knowledge this is an excellent example of the Californian form of A. mellea. It’s possible it has since been given a new name since it does have macro-morphological difference, but I have not heard of any new proposed names for this.
