This lone specimen was found growing in a eucalypt forest. I originally thought it was a mature G. junonius, but I’m not so sure now.

looking forward to it.
Joy!!! I spotted two new clusters of baby Gymnos on my Magic Log – I think they’re G. purpuratus, not 100% sure though. They whispered to me, “Hey – when we grow up, can we fly over to Florida?” I told them they’d have to wait and see.
I took some pics, but stupidly left my cable at home (I’m at work now.) I promise I’ll post them tomorrow!
Definitely a sign of gymno-treats to come :D
Just realised you’re a fellow Aussie! I just had a look through your photos – some cool finds there, I especially love your Flammulina – looking forward to the day I spot one here in the Adelaide Hills :o)
I only ever find G. junonious, they seem to be everywhere around here at the moment.
For the record. I don’t think it is G. junonious. Would be interesting to see if it can be narrowed down more.
can’t wait to see more.
Sorry Bloodworm, I spotted this gorgeous mushroom in a forest a week ago, and sadly, I didn’t bring it home with me.
But take consolation – the gymnos are popping up everywhere now – fungi season has sprung BIG TIME (hooray!) and next time I spot one of these (or indeed, any other unusual gymnos) I’ll parcel it up and send it on a one way trip to the USA :D
love to get this under the scope.
