When: 2008-06-01

Collection location: Auckland, New Zealand [Click for map]

Who: Michael W (Michael Wallace)

No specimen available

Notes:
Found in a one year old landscaped garden planted with native grasses and shrubs, fruiting directly from Pinus radiata chips.
This is one of the two distinctly different forms of this species I have come across, this one is much shorter and more acutely umbonate and bifurcate cheilocystidia are common.
