Thank you for your comment. I dont think the Cap is the same. Have a look at the loaded sample by Douglas Smith. One other problem here in OZ is that we seem to have seperate species native to Austrlia but sometimes receive the European ID. I use a reference from an Australianauthor, “Bruce Fuhrer”. He doues have some excellent images and descriptions of Australian Fungi.
