It’s very unlikely that this could be I. praecox, there have been no collections or records of that species occurring in New Zealand and as far as I know it is only known from the Pacific Northwest of the United States.

Unfortunately we’ll never know as I don’t have a voucher for this collection, I may collect this again but there are many species here with similar macroscopic characteristics so I couldn’t say for sure that it was the same species.
