Observation 85306: Armillaria (Fr.) Staude
When: 2011-12-29
Who: Decimus10
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Growing in a clump at the base of a tree at a suburb. Tree unknown, but picture included.

Gills: White. Don’t seem to be attached to the stem, but I never collected nor ID’ed mushrooms before.

Stem: White-to-brown, fragile, woody.

Cap: Dark brown to light brown, with white cracks.

Partial Veil: Appears to be present. Again, I have never ID’ed mushroom before, so take this with a grain of salt.

Bruising: No particularly noticeable color changes.

Smell: Smells “mushroomy”. Not distinctive.
