Site revisit. I hope to return to the same site in about 6 days if access is possible. I have recorded the area of the find. I did check some other Omphalotus growths several days ago and all were decayed on their habitat.
The original specimens deteriorated so badly by the time I reached home that they were not kept. (Scope is on the way.. still in the process of trying to get chemicals.. waiting reply from OS.) Thanks for your ongoing assistance.

Thinker ID

On this particular day and for several previous days in Fungispots that I frequent, I have noticed the fruiting bodies of “Omphalotus”. The fungi only survives for about 2 days after maturity and herbarium specimens decay rather quickly when removed from thier habitat, (wood living). I am inclined to agree with “Thinkers” suggested ID, but will wait and see what follows. At present the ID is rated at 50%. kk
