Armillaria mellea? no black under ring. growing on spruce
Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!
Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
No interactions present.
I have found these today on the roots of Scot's pine.There seem's to be a few different variations of this, do you know if they are doing any research on this species

The paper is about variation within the species etc. there always has been a lot of interest in armillaria since its such a serious pathogen.
It is interesting to know as I wonder how long they have just been clumped together as one type.
By the way thanks Alan for the ID, they were very young. The image is a bit misty as the camera lens kept steaming up as it was so humid in the woodland
