(another) unknown mushroom found in mixed woodland

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

The second of two samples from today - Yorkshire, UK. Again no odd smell. These were growing on an unidentified stump surrounded by a mix of oak and beech (and probably others). The top of the caps appear sticky. The size is about 7cm across and 11cm high.

Hi again,

This is the same species, as in your first ( viewtopic.php?f=4&t=2176#p10360 )post - Armillaria mellea - Honey Fungus, only these fruitbodies are older / more mature.

Common sense is not so common.
