Observation 98155: Armillaria (Fr.) Staude


I have had time to load the Mantle(Cap) image. It was interesting to note the small dark spots radiating out from the centre of the cap. The slight colouring about eleven o’clock was caused by natural light on a slightly moist surface.

I took this image some time ago in a different locality but was ID’d as Armillaria. The distinctive difference to me was the joined stipes in one example and in the last uploaded 24/06/2012 all specimens had no attached stipes, and the specimens were mainly much smaller in comparison to the earlier images loaded.. The Black coloured stipes also does not appear in any of the "similar or Same " examples. The only Black stipes I can find are both examples I have described, although from different locations in NSW Australia.
Both examples were shown growing on deadwood. The latest images Cap size was about 20-25mm. I think both separate examples loaded are the same fungi species. I am just not sure about the ID?

Fungi notes

This group of images were taken in the same and close proximity. One of the fungi images although the stem is not dark I believe is of the same species. I also have a good quality image of the cap if it is required.
