Big Nature![edit]

"Another "humongous fungus" is a specimen of Armillaria bulbosa found at a site near Crystal Falls, Michigan. It covers 0.15 square kilometres (37 acres) and was published in Nature."

That must have been an extra-large edition of the journal and/or a very intelligent fungus. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:21, 4 February 2011 (UTC)

Largest Organism in the World Claim[edit]

The colony of Armillaria ostoyae in question is not considered one organism, but many. The General Herman tree, a specimen of the Giant Sequoia, is generally considered to be the world's largest organism. MickeyK 22:28, 27 May 2006 (UTC)

Citation, please? Note that the lead sentence of the BBC story (referenced in the article) explicitly states:
Researchers in the US have found what is probably the largest living organism on Earth.
Unless you can find better references that indicate it is not one organism, I support restoring the claim. Thanks!

Other species in Armillaria are forest pathogens. Is ostoyae? 16:10, 19 October 2006 (UTC)
