Observation 8098: Lichenomphalia Redhead, Lutzoni, Moncalvo & Vilgalys

These fungi are also growing in the Comboyne State Forest. The images are not sharp but I thought as they depict different angles and varying stages of maturity that they may be of some interest.The gills on one of the images seems to be from the stem right out to the edge of the cap. (I think the term is Decurrent; widely spaced.)

Wow that was a super fast reply. It must be awake time in your part of the world. Thanks for all your expert input. About to post two images not named as yet. Chow, KK

Yes, decurrent

Yes these are decurrent gills. Also the whole body shape here is Omphaloid, with the gill widely spaces, going down the stipe and straight out to the cap margin. Usually this is Omphalina, but can also be Lichenomphalina which is the fuiting body of some types of lichen. But there is also 6-7 other genus that have this body shape.

These kinda look like Lichenomphalia umbellifera though…
