this reserve is mostly Casuarinaceae intermixed with Banksia. I think I posted a chromapes like taxa on MO from here last year.

Rod when I said pine this was a broad statement. The trees in this area, (acaisias) I think drop the needles. (Not pines in the true aspect Frazer Island Pines or Bunyah.. My tree naming leaves a lot to be desired. Noah is familiar with this Coastal Reserve. KK

needles? Interesting. A macroscopically very similar item was on Fraser Island during late March. One collection had a bitter taste and another was mild. Both found with native Myrtaceae, Casuarinaceae.

Looks like T. plumbeoviolaceus, but that is a long shot considering the habitat, continent… None the less, were there any hardwoods around? Particularly Quercus?

Johann

Sorry about poor report Johann. I travel by myself in remote bush and do not put anything in my mouth that I do not know anything about for sure. Many of our fungi have not been fully investigated. I do always smell and break or cut the specimen. Here it is not uncommon for the fungi to only have a mild mushroom aroma if any.

Was it bitter tasting?

that’s assuming that Tylopilus even occurs in OZ…

but it’s a good best guess for now.
