Observation 28225: Armillaria solidipes Peck

Notes:
This is a typical A. mellea-like mushroom, but was fruiting on live alder, and appeared to be associated with die-offs on alder in typical root-disease centers. Interestingly it has a mild taste, unlike the usual nasty taste of our common honey mushrooms. We plan to sequence this to confirm it, but I think by habitat alone this ID is likely to be correct. Macroscopically, however, it was not obviously different from a normal honey mushroom.

Recognized by sight: Tom I think this is still A. solidipes, even though it’s on alder. A. nabsnona, in my experience, has a more reddish orange pileus, a darker stem, and is gregarious, not caespitose, like these specimens.
