Observation 77998: Armillaria (Fr.) Staude
When: 2011-10-01
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Found in mixed conifer forest, and aspen.

Ok, using this name might be controversial, but everyone agreed that this is not A. mellea. And that perhaps it should be called A. gallica as it has been used in the western US in the past. And in communication with Tom Volk, I was told that A. gallica doesn’t really exist in the western US, and that A. sinapina is a better name to use in the area for this form.

I’m a little more confident on its use in the California coast, than up in the mountains.
