  1. Lawrie Conole  Looks like one of the 'Amanita ochrophylla group' that are abundant over my way in the Spring Hill area of Wombat State Forest.

    • David Francis  Thanks, Lawrie. It had a large bulbous base which also agrees with ochrophylla.

      • Lawrie Conole  Yep, but could also be A. ochrophylloides ..

        • David Francis  My book on fungi say ochrophylloides has large pointed warts that darken with age and the gills are pale golden yellow, not dull creamy yellow as in ochrophylla ... but happy to demote it to Amanita spp.
