Honey Mushrooms - Armillaria mellea Caps were flat, orange/tan, faintly lined, and had scales concentrated toward the center. Gills were pinkish, attached to the stem and slightly decurrent with frequent short gills. The stipe had white flocculence and a ring.<br />

Habitat: I spotted THOUSANDS of these mushrooms growing alone or in clusters throughout a mixed forest. They were everywhere!<br />
