When: 2009-03-22
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This Dark Brown specimen is new to me. This is the first time I have seen it. The mantle was wet from rain and not sticky. No spore count taken. I have been through my references, but cannot really be positive with an identification.

there are quite a few Lactarius species of this type with very distant gills too. But it’s funny how they have evolved to look so alike..

the gills do look similar to Hygrophorus but the velvety cap looks like lactarius…

This looks so much like Hygrophorus camarophyllus, but is it possible that you have it in Australia?
