Yes it is interesting, I’m not 100% certain that it is that species, it was the closest species that I could match it to regarding macroscopic characters, if it is G. luteofolius I think it would be the first recorded find in New Zealand, this was found at the Auckland Museum close to a big glass house where they grow lots of tropical plants, there are many tourists in this area and I’m sure it could have easily been introduced by humans.

It is the middle of summer here and is extremely humid and wet, the last few days it has been raining non stop and all of my finds have been of unusual fungi that are mostly if not all introduced species.
