Observation 132495: Armillaria (Fr.) Staude

Notes:
I thought when I saw this Colony of Fungi, that I had already photographed and loaded the images to MO. After looking at it more carefully I do not think so.
I do not think it is Gerronema, Fistulina lepatia or Hypholma. The spore colour could be white, but without a microscope, (this could change!), this is only a guess from the images taken. The fungi was growing at the base of a very large Fig, and some specimens were found about 2 meters from the main colony growing on the forest floor.

Martin, Agree on Armillaria, but the top section of the stem was not lighter than the remainder. Previous images show above the veil on the stem to be much paler. Maybe there is a seperating distinction in the genus/ but otherwise “all is good” kk

Look like a pale Armillaria or Armilariella.

Sorry I don’t know more about Australian fungi.

I am familiar with Gerronema and Hypholoma – don’t know much about Fistulina – but have you thought about Armillaria?
