Identification please

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

Hi,

I think the photo has a bit of a colour cast to it, but would be reasonably confident that this is one of the Armillaria (Honey Fungus) species.

Regards,
Mike.
