Observation 95949: Boletaceae Chevall.

When: 2012-05-31

Collection location: South Australia, Australia [Click for map]

Who: fungus.amongus

Specimen available

Found underground growing on the wall of an old gold mine. Growing only out of a very thin layer of sandy dirt and solid rock underneath, one additional specimen was found near the original (photo included). Mould like mycelium appears to grow around the fungi and even on top of the cap. Dried specimen is available from me as well as a flesh sample.
