which is NOT MR, and can occur with any sort of plant sp., but esp. in impoverished landscapes: sandy, little loam, etc.

Fun find. It will produce copious amounts of powdery spores from the top of that cap, so don’t leave it lying around inside the house, unbagged!

It was under a tree.

I believe it was a Eucalyptus Ficifolia, or some other sort of Eucalyptus. I didn’t get good photos of the habitat, but will likely return to the area today, and I can see if I can add habitat photos.

in photos 2 and 5 was covering the cap?

Was this found near the roots of any tree or shrub? I.e., was it obviously mycorrhizal?
