But I will go back and knock some off with a stick.

Armillaria was growing at the tree base, so I will have to look more closely. Alan is probably right. My flash burnt out so sorry about the crummy photos.

Darv, You are likely right in it not being G. luteofolius, but that mushroom doesn’t only grow in chips. It will grow on dead trees as well.

Gymnopilus luteofolius is a wood chip decomposer. These look like they are on a live tree.
