[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
We were at the platoos last weekend. Two days and one night camping... Sultanpinari Platoo is a vast plain beauty at the mountains... This armillaria ostoyae species was on a log within the fir forest.

UPDATED! Thanks for the correct identification to dear Harmon... Yes, there the ring on the right one...

Thanks for visiting...

Hey, nobody likes mushrooms? I do. Very nice composition with great DOF and clarity. The sphagnum moss is not quite the rich dark green that is truly is in nature (lightened too much?). TFS

My Best wishes,

the colours can better

Yes you have right i love also Fungi,s and have MANY-MANY on TN
thanks greeting lou

Hi Ersin,
Beautiful photo, but instead of Armillaria tabescens it shows Armillaria ostoyae (Romagn.) Herink. A. tabescens doesn't have ring around the stem, while your photo shows it, even if the fruitbodies are immature. A. ostoyae's growing exclusively on coniferal wood, mostly on spruce (Picea spp.) and fir (Abies spp.) and its cap is such scaly as your great image shows (unlike the one of A. tabescens).
Another, very similar species is Armillaria cepistipes Velen., but its substrate (deciduous wood) is different.
Best regards, László
