Stock Photo Description
Stock photo of Honey Fungus scientifically as Armillaria mellea clustered on a tree covered in moss growing freely in the cool wet forest in the mountains of Japan and also very common and widespread throughout Britain, Europe too and North America. The Honey fungus is a parasitic mushroom which thrives on rotting wood and can spread its mycelial threads throughout the tree or from one tree to another. Widely considered as an edible mushroom in the past although there have been a few fatalities in modern times which has changed this perception. Again if properly prepared they should be fine but some people may have an adverse reaction which is what the fatalities have pointed to.
