Collection location: Swans Crossing State Forest, New South Wales, Australia [Click for map]
I have found and photographed this unusual fungi several times. Sometimes the growth is more abundant within the fungi and at other times it is not as thick in habit. I have had two different ID’s for the fungi of which I cannot make a decission as to which is the correct ID.
Two samples are from my uploads: 55298 Isaria
and 66301 Thelephoraceae
This specimen was growing on wood which is the normal habit. Usually only found in single or two lots of growth. I have several images of the last example found at Swans and will load them for viewing and possible ID verification.
Many thanks, kk

Thelephora is certainly one possibility. like so many of Ian’s eyecatching finds down under, microscopy could say so much. I hesitate to make species determinations for fungi found so far away from both Europe and North America, and particularly for somewhere I’m so generally unfamiliar with.
The specimen I found (in this file) only had a stong mushroom odour. I am going to try and get access to the area on Friday, if we dont get more bad weather. I also am going to see if I can retrieve the Bolete that I loaded to keep for Royh.
I will check this fungi out again more thoroughly, (they usually last several days), and get back with a reply. Thanks for the interest and comment. kk
