This specimen which was located at the base of the stump on exposed root system had a darker cap, (see previous image 3387) and the stipe was tending to split when picked and had a velvety appearance to it . This fungi stipe also had a slight green colour in the daylight.

Might be Armillaria hinnulea
Threesome

I will post some individual micrographs as soon as I can. Thanks for the input MOM’s. I added a note to this comment and it has disappeared. (maybe I forgot to save!). I noted that the darker specimen cap although looking the same as the other two “could” be a different specimen.

Dave/Jacob, Backs up what I said previously don’t you agree. Every outing I come across something that is Different or breaks the rules. Brian (Looney) can taste my finds for me if he comes over anytime. I will sit and watch. LOL.kk

Ian, the last mushroom pictured…

appears to show the remains of a partial veil in the form of an annulus on the stipe. I know of no species of Paxillus with this feature.

ID?

Comments please.
