These werefairly easy to identify I thought because of the the fine pores on the underside in lieu of gills.

bush is best!

We can discuss all of this when we get there, I suppose, but we are game for anything!

Morning(here) Debbie

The Filoboletus manipularis in this file were collected at Wilsons River Primitive Reserve. If you and David are ok with this area, (furthest from me and isolated ), we sure can do it. It would be a full early start day trip, but always produces something different each time I visit. (usually about twice a year in the fungi season) which will be whilst you are here.

Hullo Ian!

Do these little guys fruit in March? If so, we should attempt to get some glow in the dark shots!

Counting the days …

OZ site

Att. Deb. I googled the site you were so kind to provide for me. See Deb, I have to get all the real info from M.O. I have not been given this site from any of our so called experts in Australia. The site is excellent, and I could probably add some to his verrryyy lloonngg list of unidentified fungi. I am familiar with some of the locations mentioned esp. Barrington Tops .I will definately spendsome time on the site. Thank you so much again. KK

Spot-on, Ian!

Fabulous mushroom! I was unfamiliar with this one (don’t get to the tropics much) and so I googled it…and discovered what might be a very useful online source for some of your Australian mushroom IDs:

Check out his work, if you haven’t already.

Also found a reference to this amazing little Filoboletus on Hope and the late Orson Miller’s Website, under interesting fungi. Indeed.

For those who reside on this side of the world, the upcoming NAMA foray will be in McCall, Idaho in early September, in Hope and Orson’s fabulous Idaho mountain hunting grounds. Who knows what other “interesting” fungi we might find? There should be plenty of new images posted in this space come mid-September!

Wow – thanks for this photo -
