Having a field companion is truly a good thing. They always find the interesting stuff! Please keep posting, even those that you think are common – you never know! Thanks very much.


I think one of my problems with keeping specimens is which ones to keep and which ones to pass up. Over the years I have gained some knowledge of whether the fungi is common or not. Trouble is sometimes fungi that I do not post because I have seen them several times, are ones that I should have taken that extra interest in. My knowledge is very limited. As you are aware, sometimes on an excursion I would photograph up to 100 fungi, and possibly post only 20 specimens.. I need a mycologist companion. Noah has been with me for a day, and has only observered one tenth of the fungi I am privelged to see during our fungi season. He was impressed I believe with what I was able to show him when he spent the day, and he found fungi I missed!. I also catalog Austalian flora and Fauna and try to specialise in photos of Birds in Flight. Too many eggs in the basket, but I do enjoy every minute in our Aussie bushlands.

Pulveroboletus and true

species of the genus as we know it now, has a pulverulent veil. The ones I’ve seen in Australia adhere to this original generic concept, even in very dry conditions. The ones I’ve seen in FNQld are nearly a greenish with the veil remains. Your observation intrigues me immensely. Again, too bad no specimen available.
