Hi all,

Thanks for providing a great resource, hoping someone can help identify these fungi.

Sorry the images are not as good as they could be, I've now read the faq and understand what I need to photograph next time to help make identification easier but the woodland is an hour away so thought I'd try with what I have. I can retake in a week or two, if they are still there.

Just to clarify images 1&2, then 3&4 are the same fungi at different angles.

Hi and welcome to the site
Both these fungi are Armillaria species - honey fungus complex - at different stages of development. At this time of year it's worth familiarising yourself with Armillaria at different stages, as honey fungus is very common in all sorts of woodland habitats, hedge bottoms etc. As with many of the larger fungi young, mature and over-mature fruitbodies can look confusingly different when you are starting out.

Oops, I think this has been misunderstood sorry,

What I should have clarified was I had not tried to identify fungi previously seen, (e.g as you are just walking through a woodland). This time it is hopefully going to become my woodland so I had tried to identify these mainly to ensure they were not lethal. I couldn't decide if they were a true Chanterelle or false Chanterelle and then I just got lost in a world of confusion.

After the kind response from Chris I looked up the Armillaria family and the notes on one page caused me to post the comment that was removed. I posted the poorly worded response because after looking at several other images on sites I still wasn't sure, obviously showing my lack of skill.

Sorry for the confusion and my brain fart post.

Wrists slapped for not reading the rules. :oops:

Thanks
