yes, the one I thought of, too, was A. ost. (well, I 1st thought of the rare gemina, which would be interesting if that one appeared over in Europe, perhaps just as rarely or maybe more commonly). If it is somehow A. gemina, that would be most interesting.

My main reason for leaning toward ost./gem. was how the base wasn’t so bulbous. And for you the darkness of the scales leaned you.

i think it looks and appears to be A. ostoyae because of the blackish scales on the cap…
and the brownish underside of the ring.
but, i really have no idea if that species even occurs there…

I’m not sure my attempt at being helpful was as unhelpful as it seemed.

True, the site I pointed to isn’t of the Czech region, however it does nicely list a bunch of mushrooms, oftentimes including visually identical species to what’s found there. Hence, its list may help to resolve the uncertainty over this ob.

this is an observation from the Czech Republic.
mushroomexpert, while useful…isn’t really the best source of information here.

1. a general comment is: Does A. gallica ever have yellow ring zones in your area?

2. Could it be any other of these (http://www.mushroomexpert.com/armillaria.html)?
