Observation 55470: Armillaria (Fr.) Staude

When: 2010-10-13

Collection location: Stevens Co., Washington, USA [Click for map]

Who: Joy (lorettaartist)

No specimen available

Caps are slightly tacky when young, and are sort of viscuous where water puddles on them. They grow up to 8" in width, often ruffled, with stems that often become flattened, wide, and cottony inside when older. Gills descend down the stems a way. These mushrooms have been found all over in the mainly conferous woods on our property in the mountains. There are also maple, birch and other mixed trees around. The mushrooms grow in bunches on the bases of old tree trunks & roots, but also here and there on the woodland floor. The scent is like the finest oyster mushrooms. Thanks so much for any help in identifying….
