Need help identifying

Recommended Posts

 Hello all I’m new to this. Been interested for years but never got to it till now. Found these in Copperopolis Ca. growing next to an oak tree on a shale rock hillside. More clusters nearby as well. Thinking maybe a type of honey mushroom. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

It could be dangerous to even hazard a guess with the information provided. Needs pics according to the sticky on mushroom ID. Could be honey mushrooms....could be a number or other species as well, some very poisonous.

A few more pics that might help. Any suggestions on how to take the right kind of pics to help you help me are appreciated. Thanks again.

It looks like Armillaria mellea, unless the California version has been recently renamed.

Looks like a species of Armillaria... Stalk with fibrous outer layer and white pithy interior. Cap surface with little tufts of hairy scales. Growth habit clustered on/near wood. Does the stalk have a ring? (I can't tell if the photo shows a true ring or just some of the outer stalk surface peeling.) Spore print color would be helpful. 

Okay... looked at the in-situ pic again. I see the rings on the stalks. These are almost certainly a species of Armillaria. But, if you're just learning how to recognize mushrooms from this genus (Honey Mushrooms), then I recommend taking a spore print.
