True Rod. Thanks for your input. I revisited the area a few days ago but had no luck finding more. I’m determined to however, a bugbear this is.

but of course …

saprobes get moved around in root soil just like the MR species do.

in other words, still possible that this is an alien to OZ.

So far as I know, the specis of Limacella are not mycorrhizal.

So it is probably not symbiosis that is determining where this critter is found if it is a Limacella.

Very best,

appear to be almost free of the stipe. I’m more than confident this is Limacella. A thorough collection will hopefully be made in the coming week. Compare to this observation>>>

certainly slimy enough for a limacella
