Observation 20787: Armillaria (Fr.) Staude

There were two of this species at the base of the same tree. (living) I almost missed seeing them because they were shaded and one of the set had begun to droop. From this I would say that both specimens were well matured, but I found a couple of things associated with them interesting.
The caps were up to 7cm across and not sticky. There was a spider type web ring spaced away from the top of the stipe and the stipe had small white web-like particles down to the base. The stipe was also velvet like to touch, and when I ran my finger over it a couple of times, I could see lines, extending in a parallel manner towards the top of the stipe. Also both specimens had three stipes from a single base. the stipes were up to 10cm in length. There was a very decisive area near the top of each stipe that was not velvet like and lighter in colour. The stipes on both specimens were not sticky. The stipes also had a hollow centre.
