Hugging an oak stump I found this double
Fragrant Armillaria aka Armillaria caligata
Underside. Stem turned cinnamon brown
after a few hours.
Spore print white. Spore size 7.7 x
Tough little mushroom growing on top of the
same stump. Largest cap about 5/8". It took some effort to rip one
out. No bleeding at the torn stem.
This is the slime mold that was first
photographed on 9/18
This is the yellow variety of Amanita
muscaria. There are 5 others in this patch. I plan to pick them in
the next few days, detoxify them as recommended in the
David Arora article and eat them. I
want to see if I agree with William Rubel that they are a choice edible.
