Armillaria mellea gp.
Small scales on cap, annulus not too obvious.
Armillaria mellea has been divided into about 10 species now, and the one most commonly identified in this area is A. ostoya. This may or may not be that species. One of these is the largest and oldest organism in the world, growing in our state but to the east of this. This particular fruiting was the most prolific I've ever seen.
