Hi Roy,

I’m glad the image is useful to you, I guess it’s very possible that this species could be at Fraser Island, I would say the brown staining would be slightly reddish-brown.

The specimens in my first post that you mentioned from last year were photographed using the flash so I think the colour would have been a bit off, all of these images were done with natural light and the colour is much more accurate but as you say, the colour interpretation is in the eye of the beholder.

If it’s of use to you I could make some micrographs in the next few days for you to compare to your Fraser Island collections?

thanks for posting

this image MichaelW. I was 99% sure this is the taxon that is fairly common on Fraser Island (Qld) since I’ve been going there (Feb ’09), but only just had the opportunity to look at my material.
A question: would you say that the “light brown” staining tends toward some reddish (from your earlier post last year)? Of course color interpretation is in the eyes of the beholder. Thanks again.
