When: 2009-10-18

Collection location: Toronto, Ontario, Canada [Click for map]

Who: Toby Janssen (Toby Janssen)

No specimen available

I’d love to figure out exactly what these are. There were four different species of armillaria this fall and I can’t distinguish which is which. I managed to see them when they were young and some till almost grown . It seemed like some animal ate these mushrooms because they would get to a certain amount of growth then they would be destroyed. Most of the mushrooms would be gone and what was left was in shreds all over the place. I’ll post all four in separate entries. Three look like Armillaria Mellea but the species were distinctly different from each other.

Mystery Armillaria 2
The yellow fuzz on the young mushrooms is more translucent than Armillaria 1, stains the stem and ring, and some of it remains on the mature mushrooms as hair on the cap
CAP 6cm w 3cm h, medium brown with small hairs left from the yellow fuzz
GILLS -white when immature
STEM 20cm h x 4cm w yellow and textured, the veil is white with yellow stains on the edge.
LOCATION -growing out of the ground, buried wood?
