Kinda by default?

Well, kinda by default, with the growth in Europe and all, but also the light yellow colors and the lack of brown in the veil. (along with the tight fasciculate clusters…) I could probably do better, if someone could show me how to, with 100% certainty, tell there are clamps on the base of the basidia, with only 5 mins of work on the scope.

What makes it a mellea vs other Armillaria species?
