Caption: Honey fungus mushrooms. Several harvested honey fungus or bootlace mushrooms (Armillaria mellea). This fungus is found on or around the trunks of coniferous and deciduous trees. The fungus is often found on dead trees. This fungus is saprophytic, that is it is free-living and feeds on dead wood playing a role in rotting dead trees. The fungus spreads by long black bootlace-like strands called rhizomorphs (not seen) which can grow beneath bark, along roots and through the soil. Honey fungus mushrooms grow from summer to early winter and are edible once cooked.
