Armillaria luteobubalina – Australian Honey Fungus

On dead or living wood. These large agarics form clusters around tree bases. The usually yellow-brown cap has a broad umbo; scattered minute scales on its surface feel like sandpaper. Below the membranous ring, the stem is dark, tough and fibrous. Spores are white and gills cream, often with rusty marks.
