Anyone know what this is? Its growing over old hardwood root system. I'm guessing honey mushroom? Ty
Hmmmm. When I first looked at the thumbnail I thought Jack O'Lantern, but the larger pic puts that to rest. Let's see what others have to say. I don't have a lot of experience with honeys, but if those are they look kind of old to me. Did you pick any and look at the underside?
I didnt pick any but when I looked the gills were a cream to light tan. I went out of town Wednesday morning when I got back today, there they are. I have three clusters like that 2' x 2'. That is the most mature patch
I would say those that are pictured at the top 0f the page are Armillaria tabescens, Ringless Honeys. These, the ones I posted, are Jacks, Omphalotus illudens
They don't look like any kind of honey to me. I would expect to see a white spore print on the bottom mushrooms when they are that old.
Ron Day, Ya, I worded that sort of funky so I re-wrote it.
