When: 2009-05-28
No herbarium specimen

Notes: On my trip to Australia I meet up with Ian Dodd who took me to some of his favorite mushroom spots; I’ll post a few of our finds, he probably will have more…
This collection is young, it’s usually redder then this.

was probably the most common fungi I came across in the tropics; it’s also a lot thinner fleshed then coccineus.

can be very light in color too whereas P.sanguineus can be very dark red. Both occur in Australia but the latter one almost exclusively in the tropic belt.
