Its good to here you are finding plenty, I have been down the far side of the west coast and found I had to walk on fungi to get to more fungi there were just so many!!!

I don’t have a dryer and have keep some stuff hoping it will last to Sunday night but this wasn’t one of them, had my hands full with other stuff. It was probably the best mushrooming I have ever had on the road to Milford Sound; everywhere I looked something was growing.
I did photograph a similar looking one in at the same location, I’ll post it.

Wow this is a species I have only seen once before so is nice to see it again at the other end of the country. This is only the 4th time it has been found I hope Noah you have a dryer with you :) If you have a microscope you should find its spores are constricted in the center (Peanut shaped) but only very slightly. Or I have miss ID it!!
