Observation 163580: Armillaria (Fr.) Staude

Maybe Paxillus involutus. Found two joined specimens about a meter up an old dead hollw tree stump and a single specimen at the base, (more mature and darker) on an exposed root. Rainforest area with low light and wet soil.


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

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.


Comments please.
