Yellow mushroom for ID | 29Apr10AR01 : Attachments (4)
Yellow mushroom for ID.
Hemispherical shaped white Pileus, Veil remnants on the cap – yellow to orange (probably young mushrooms), 11 nos in cluster,, white stipes (~0.35mm) appear slender,
Habitat: dark, damp soil, forest floor, (I had to use camera flash), humid weather, found close to a tree branch but not attached to it, guess they belong to Mycorrhiza (Not sure whether the tree was alive or dead), no photographs of ring , volva, mycelium, gills, pores, etc . Odor: not tried, Taste: won’t risk,
Height: 3-5cm. Cap ~3cm.
Place: Top Slip, Anaimalais (Elephant hills) , Western ghats, Tamil Nadu
(the reason why Top Slip got its name is because huge logs of teak wood used to be slipped to the plains below)

I hope this some species of Armillaria sp but not at all Armillaria mellea (Honey Fungus).
