Most of the resources I use to ID Australian mushrooms seem very lacking in Laccaria information, we have an abundance of different spp. and there seems to be a severe lack of documentation for them, or I am not looking in the right places to find it.

please consider that Mushrooms Demystified was written by a Californian for California, and any similarities to Australian fungi must be somewhat suspect as a result.
