Observation 153402: Armillaria bulbosa (Barla) Kile & Watling

When: 2013-11-21

Collection location: Vernon Co., Missouri, USA [Click for map]

Who: MissouriMyco (cbeshore)

No specimen available

Smells wonderfully mushroomy found mostly around oak trees huddled up in bunches and occasionally scattered about singly. Grows on wood, wood chips, wood debris. Colors vary from yellow to brown in my experience. Multiple flushes per year I’ve noticed here in Missouri. VAST differences in apperance noted in online resources make it difficult to ID by site only.(which no one would do anyway). Grows year-round it seems here in Missouri. You may have to dig under leaves in the fall to find them or look for disturbed areas where small animals have been eating them. I have been too afraid to eat them due to various “look alikes” especially when young, but if this is the species I think it is…it is listed as “edible”.
