I think I see a faint pink staining reaction on the cap in the second photograph…and those pink gills appear to be rather distinctive. Neat find.

In Western Australia, they have Amanita carneiphylla, which looks quite a bit like the mushroom in your pix. Check here:


Dr. Elaine Davison and Katie Syme have sent me information and pictures of carneiphylla from WA.

I’d very much like to take a look at your material.
