No interactions present.
The most feared of the honey fungi, responsible for the death of many trees and shrubs in gardens and woodlands. Regards
Please can you tell me the distinguishing characteristics of A. mellea.
Sarah Jane, I hope this is what you are looking for in Honey Fungi. Robust relatively tough fungi. Mostly honey-coloured; cap is usually minutely scaly. Gills are whitish, often with rusty spots; spore print is whitish. Most species have a persistent ring. Associated with dead or living wood; some species are aggressive parasites. Found in dense clusters on or around the base of deciduous trees and shrubs, less frequently on conifers. Widespread and ccommon in England. There are variations in different species. Regards
Many thanks Beagle
