When: 2012-05-15

Collection location: Kuitpo Forest, South Australia, Australia [Click for map]

Who: Kari (Kari)

No specimen available

I found clusters of these fungi growing in a denuded section of a pine forest, amongst the stumps of fallen trees. I was surprised to find so many different species of fungi in this initially unpromising location.
