Observation 7742: Pholiota (Fr.) P. Kumm.

The only problem I have with the identification of this fungi is the scollop edge of the cap. All images I have been able to view have not had this effect. Images 2 & 3 are underexposed causing some horizontal lines. Colour is reasonably close.
I have added extra images as req’d (Deb)showing gills. These images are not good quality but may satisfy in identification hopefully.

Thank you all who participated with helpful assistance. I take all you comments onboard and will endeavour to make a better posting when I have new images. Unfortunately I am still loading old images that do not meet your skilled criteria. You will have to be patient with me for a lilltle while yet.

TLI: too little info to ID

A curious specimen, but unless one of your local mycologists can recognize the photo, it is unlikely that one of us long-range folks can do so. Spore prints are a good start, and dried voucher specimens can be looked at for years to come. I heard a rumor that mushroom collecting is frowned upon in Australia, even for science. Is that true? Discrete collecting is invaluable to elucidate species, both known and unknown.

Regardless, it is marvelous to see your images, even if we can’t always put a name to them! What a wonderland you have over that way…

Not a Suillus.

You can see gills when you enlarge the photo. Stunning Agaric, tho…

Gills or tubes?

Did you get a photo of the tubes on the bottom side? The striate margin on the cap suggests gills. Looks like a Pholiota the way it’s growing.

Poor exposure on images 2 & 3

Poor exposure (under exposed ) is the reason for the faint horizontal lines across the images. The colour representation is still close to the correct colour.
