    1. zeke1944  This species has been seen in the same gully several times. I am leaning towards Lactarius genevievae(gates p101) as several of the specimens have milky droplets attached. Also this lactarius bruises orange and maybe there are a couple of orange spots there as well.

    2. John Walter  This was transferred from Paecilomyces to Isaria in 2005 and is the anamorph (asexual phase) of Cordyceps takaomontana which according to Mycobank is a synonym of Cordyceps tenuipes. Following the changes to the Code of Nomenclature discussed recently with the Hypocrea/Trichoderma species, it is clear that the correct name will eventually be adopted by ALA and the indications are that Cordyceps tenuipes is the winner.

    1. zeke1944  This species was seen at Mt Worth by the Fungi group a week earlier. And lo and behold was seen again in the Lorne area on the mentioned date and hasn't been seen since. It grows on the remains of old dead stipes on the trunk of the soft tree fern Dicksonia antartica. It was suggested that it may belong to the Beenakia genus but at this stage it is only speculation. The size was about 30 by 40mm.

      Reply • 22 Aug

    2. John Walter  The Mt Worth specimen referred to was older and darker in colour and the spines have a more feathered look (or that could be just the photo quality). It had a pale brown spore print, hence the link to Beenakia. Other spined resupinate fungi like Steccherinum have white spores. It would be nice to track down at least a Family name for this very interesting specimen.

    4. John Walter  The specimens collected in WA can be viewed at Amanitaceae.org at http://www.amanitaceae.org/?Amanita+arenaria They show fully formed (but unopened) caps and a very woolly stipe not unlike a Rozites stipe. Has Theresa Lebel seen these images? I suggest that the habitat from the WA collection and yours are extremely similar but I am not sure they are the same species. There are more truffle-like and sequestrate species of Amanita out there and I need to do more research but this is an extremely interesting find none the less.

    1. zeke1944  Asperoinocybe sp. This name was given over on Flicker and resembles a similar species from that genus. I have seen this species on three occasions in the Lorne area. It produces a thick Mycelium around litter and eventually produces fruiting bodies with a Cap to about 15mm in diam. It was initially confused with Astophera mirabilis. It has been collected and forwarded to the Herbarium and to date no information has been forwarded.

    3. Chris Lindorff  I can find reference to Hypocrea gelatinosa and Trichoderma gelatinosum (as synonyms). The ALA is currently accepting the latter name, referencing the NZ Organism Register. What information or advice do you have regarding current nomenclature? Thanks. Chris.

      Reply • 23 Aug

    4. zeke1944  ID by the fungi group from the reference in the guide book. Could also be under Creopus gelatinosus.

      Reply • 24 Aug

    5. John Walter  The accepted name is now Trichoderma gelatinosum. Many species of fungi have very different forms, depending on whether they were present in a sexual phase or an asexual phase. (Fungi seriously question our understanding of sex and even of species). In this instance the Telemorph, or sexual phase has been identified as Hypocrea, while the asexual phase or Anamorph is Trichoderma. Initially these phases were thought to be entirely different species but once it was understood that they were the same species it left a naming problem for the taxonomists. Initially precedence was given to the Telemorph but this did not work out so well with Hypocrea species as they can be extremely difficult to separate based on Telemorph features alone. A revised International Code of Nomenclature came into effect in June 2011 which required the adoption of one name only for these dualist species and Trichoderma predates the name Hypocrea by 31 years and has become the accepted name for the species formerly known as Hypocrea.

    3. John Walter  There is only one collection of this species listed for Australia on the Virtual Herbarium, although there are several for New Zealand. There have been a number of recent observations recently and I suspect the FNCV group has made more collections that have not yet been listed. Records overseas are for tropical Central and South America. The bright colour aids identification.

    1. zeke1944  This may be another fan shaped Entoloma the Mycelium is similar to that of E piterika and the cap has purplish hues and the spore seems to be pinkish. I know there is at least one more fan shaped species in the Entoloma genus I just don't know anything about it.

    2. John Walter  I guess you are referring to E. byssisedum which has been collected twice in Perth (once near pines) and in rainforest at the Bunya Mountains in Qld, plus there are two collections from the North Island in NZ one of which was from Nothofagus forest. This European species is the type species for the group E. pitereka is linked too. I have not spent long chasing images for it but it could be a possibility although it is more olive or brown toned rather than purplish and the basal mycelium seems to be more cobwebby.

    3. John Walter  I have also been looking closely at another fan shaped Clitopilus, C. conchatus. Gates & Ratkowsky does not provide a lot of data but Noordeloos & Gates has better detail. Some of your group appear too large for this species as it is listed as 5-6 mm diameter and the gills on this one are thicker than what I can see on yours. It does have "white, cottony rhizomorphs" like yours and the cap colour is described as "white, tomentose with a soft jelly-like greyish context revealed upon the collapse of the ... tomentum with handling". I do not this it is your species but I think we could record yours as Entolomataceae spp.

    1. zeke1944  Entoloma albidosimulans. Gates p64. Often on trunks of Dicksonia antartica.

      Reply • 21 Aug

    2. John Walter  There are two all white collybioid Entolomas currently described for Tasmania (Plus 3 that are tricholomatoid in shape). They are E. albidosimulans and E. totialbum. They are readily separated microscopically however I assume we only have this image to work on. E. albidosimulans has a cap that has a "deflexed then straight margin" and is "finely tomentose all over, becoming radially fibrillose with age" and undergoes a colour change when older to "pale ochre yellow to pink". The E. totialbum cap has a "straight, entire margin" and is "white becoming pink-tinged, glabrous, dry, slightly aeriferous".

      Reply • 22 Aug

    3. John Walter  The pink on the lower cap is spores deposited from above but there does appear to be a hint of yellowing at its left apex. It is difficult to determine if it has a finely tomentose surface. There is no hint of decurved margins in your image, even the small specimen in the inset appears to have straight margins and Gates images of E. albidosimulans this size clearly show an in-rolled margin. The gills of E. albidosimulans are described as "moderately distant" whereas on E. totialbum they are "crowded", and also described as having a serrulate edge. If you look closely at the gills in your post between 11 o clock and midday, you can see minute teeth or serrulations.

      Reply • 22 Aug

    4. John Walter  I am tending towards E. totialbum, largely on the serrulate gills, however even there, there is contradictory detail. E. albidosimulans can often have gills that are "distinctly emarginate with a distinct decurrent tooth" but they are otherwise adnate. The description for E. totialbum lists the gills as "adnate with decurrent tooth". The sharp dip in the gills as they approach the stipe is defined as emarginate and is apparent on this sample. Unfortunately there have been very few collections of E. totialbum so it is possible it might also show this feature. This could very easily be either species. One feature of E. totialbum that might help separate these is that it's stipe is slightly yellowing at the base. If you have other images of this group that show the base of the stipe it might help. I was introduced to E. albidosimulans by Genevieve Gates in the Tarkine a few years back, those specimens were older and rain affected but they were located on the trunk of Dicksonia antarctica. The text I have does not describe the substrates for either species unfortunately.

      Reply • 22 Aug

    5. John Walter  I just noted on the description for E. albidosimulans that the gill edges can be "slightly fimbriate" meaning lightly toothed. This now puts the weight of evidence back towards E. albidosimulans.
