Unusual mushroom

Asked October 14, 2018, 10:14 PM EDT

Hello. I’ve been picking mushrooms my entire life. Only five years in northeast Ohio. I’ve Never seen this variety before. Growing on a sloped hillside around stumps. With what looks like oyster mushrooms however out of the soil around, not the stump. Almost looks like a white alba truffle. Gills. Cap attached to stem. Very dense. Highly Aromatic. Looks like a doughnut peach.

These are aborted entoloma mushrooms. They are the result of Entoloma abortivum parasitizing ringed honey mushrooms (Armillaria mellea). Here is a link to more information: https://www.mushroomexpert.com/entoloma_abortivum.html
