    Found this one in my photos taken at the Winkworth Arboretum in Surrey UK last year. Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Hi @Acerholic - Very robust fruiting!

    So it is on hardwood, in a significantly sized cluster. Large overall. The staining might suggest spore colour, but not always. I can see what might be a ring high on the stipe in the mushroom in the centre, which also shows a fairly slender stipe. Lacks any yellowish cast or orange tones.

    Without underside shot, I can't make a confident ID suggestion, but based on the visible characters I put 5 cents on an Armillaria.

    @Frog Good evening J, Thank-you for that, if that is what you think then that's good enough for me. Armillaria it is.
    It was an amazing amount of fruiting and totally untouched. Hence why I took the photo.
    Thanks again.
