Need help with mushrooms found in the Pacific North-West

Recommended Posts

Found a bunch of these, growing in patches in a wooded area near a dried up bog. Lots of alder and some birch around. Lots of dead alder rotting in the area, though these were growing in dirt, not directly on any wood. 

Sorry I didn’t get a better picture of the stem, or any of the area where they were growing. 

I didn’t notice any distinctive smell.

If they were growing in clusters on buried wood and have a white spore print, they might be old specimens of Flammulina velutipes.

Thanks Vitog! It certainly looks a lot like Flammulina velutipes, though the size was a lot bigger than the 2 inches that I am reading they typically reach. The caps were close to 3 - 4 inches. They also didn't appear to be growing in clusters the way Flammulina velutipes do. I am going to have another look with that in mind and see if I can't narrow it down. I am also thinking it looks like something in the Lactarius family. Thanks again.

I think this is a  post-mature Armillaria mushroom. 

I was thinking the same.

I believe the west coast gets a few species of Armillaria that do not occur here in eastern NA.
