The photo is of the larger specimens which were left in place. The Herbarium collections UC1860801 and UC1860802 are smaller, but were found in a fairy ring like circle with the larger ones. The second collection (02) has more prominent scales though, and could be different. The collections were made by Else Vellinga.
