Hi John, I’m trying to keep current with Armillaria taxonomy… do you have a source for the name change A. ostoyaeA. solidipes? Thanks much!

If you have a fresh Armillaria basidiocarp or rhizomorph and a GPS location of your collection please contact me. I may be able to add your collection to our ongoing Armillaria studies and confirm identification with molecular data. Also the name of A. ostoyae has been changed to A. solidipes.
