There are certainly some tough mushrooms out there. It’s surprising that these can survive fire because the sclerotia are not very deep underground. They apparently fruit prolifically after burning and can pop up just days after a fire. There are a couple of other Laccocephalum species in Aus that do the same. I think they’re only ever found in burnt areas.
Fungi which form sclerotia can often withstand devastating conditions, and still fruit soon after. The first life forms found after the Mt. St. Helens eruptions in May, 1980 were morels, likely fruiting from buried sclerotia.
Found in an area of forest that was burnt in March 2010
