Finally getting around to my 3rd post :D  Today I found a stump covered in shrooms. Are these honey mushrooms, Armillaria mellea? I've looked at two field guides and they seem to indicate such, but I would greatly appreciate the input of more experienced eyes than my own.

Looks like Armillaria mellea to me. The white spore print rules out the deadly potential look alike Galerina sp.

I'm not 100% sure so don't go chowing down on 'em just on my input.

Please take a look at

https://www.mushroom...ria_mellea.html

and

https://www.mushroom...ney-fungus.html

if you haven't found those sites already.

 

Fab pictures whatever they are - I've nominated one of them for POTM :)
