Hypocreopsis amplectens is a really rare fungus, known only from Australia and New Zealand. It is one of the target species for Fungimap, and we have been looking out for it for the last 20 years, and it is still known from only a handful of sites in Australia, and in New Zealand from one site only, which is a Nothofagus forest. In Australia it is only in Victoria, and occurs in low, heathy woodland vegetation (quite a contrast to Nothofagus forest!). In Australia, I’ve seen it growing in association with a Hymenochaete, and only in vegetation which has not been burnt for a long time, where there are lots of dead stems of shrubs like Leptospermum lying around. It occurs either on dead standing stems, or on the stems once they have fallen over.
