Armillaria tabescens or something else?

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.

These fungi were on a deciduous stump. My best guess (!) is that they are ringless honey fungi. Your advice please. Thanks, Hugh

Hi,

If they are somewhere where you can make a return visit, keep an eye on them.

Not an Armillaria species.

These are freshly emerged, but I think you'll find that they grow more recognisably into one of the Pleurotus (Oyster Fungus) species - Probably P.ostreatus.

Regards,
Mike.

Thanks Mike. Yes, they are on a stump that I pass when out for a local walk. I will certainly keep an eye out on their development. Cheers, Hugh
