This beautiful cystolepiota is characterized by the copious powder and the conic build up of powder! This species is more-or-less un-studied from the southern hemisphere! I would be very interested to see a specimen of this! Right now it is only known from europe (as pulvertulenta) and western north america! “Lepiota” pseudogranulosa appears to be the same if not very similar and has a tropical distribution. I have a collection from Florida that matches perfectly. A southern Hemisphere collection would be wonderful to help figure out this question!
You may want to look into Cystolepiota hetieri as a possibility.
By the way strange things can fruit on tree fern trunks I have seen Hygrocybe, Entolomas and even a Tylopilus brunneus.
I find your fungi just as interesting although many of the things you will find here are strange and unusual!
Note, the specimen in the last two images was fruiting directly from the trunk of a living tree fern(Cyathea dealbata), about one meter off the ground!!
thanks for sharing tho! It is way cool to see these strange and wonderful things, w/out having to sink big money into airfare!
