I strongly suspect that someone will want this interesting mushroom.

describe it while fresh if you have the time, then dry it ASAP.
I am referring to the other sighting of this, I guess, since this younger specimen is a week old.

Again, GREAT material across a spectrum of ages!

It looked pretty thick, so you might want to halve it longitudinally before you dry it. Make sure that it is crispy dry all the way through before you bag it.

Also, never bag a warm mushroom … it will throw off water as it cools.

Good luck, and keep on hunting and finding those cool shrooms!


Deb, Hope to do some scope work on this fellow also. I have a couple of specimens now, so if there is anyone interested enough, and has the capabilities and time to do the real DNA bit, I will post it to them.

and here is our inrolled margin…

It may well be a new sp. of Gloeocantharellus though, or maybe even another genus altogether … the current understanding of Gomphus sensu lato (including Gloeocantharellus) only lists hymenium colors of orange, brown and green olive, not white. But of course, they have never seen material from OZ! :)
