Mushrooms this Week
There's another species, A. sinapina that apparently features these same yellow accessories, but only in the Northeast, but not out West where they are colored differently (some shade of brown I assume). And I'm in the Midwest, so is it yellow or something else? Either way, I don't think the mushrooms in my photograph are A. sinapina because that species grows singly or in groups of two to three. These mushrooms were in large clusters of twenty to thirty.
I spent awhile looking over Tom Volk's Key to North American Armillaria species, amongst other sources while trying to determine what species of Honey Mushroom I had found.
