It’s possible

that the savoriness of these fungi to forest wildlife could be useful in their identification. Given the similarities I’ve seen in 3-4 of your other posts, I think this could be the same Gloeocantharellus (assuming that’s what it is) you’ve observed in this area before. That would also explain the less visible hymenium at earlier stages of development.


I did try what you suggested but each time I left a specimen when I returned the foragers, (possibly Lyre Birds or Log Runners), had devoured the savories. I will try something else I have had in mind. Will let you know how I get on. I try and visit this location about once every week when accessible..

this is probably (but not definitely) something which has yet to mature, something which it looks like you’ve collected/observed three times at approximately the same stage of development. next time you find another patch, try leaving it and checking back in a couple/few days to see if it changes.
