    1. John Walter  Yes, Coltricia cinnamomea in the older texts and now listed as Coltricia australica in Gates & Ratkowsky. ALA has not yet adopted the new name and when reviewing the paper I note it is based on one specimen collected in Tasmania which was separated from C. cinnamomea on spore size and DNA analysis. The researcher then compared to the DNA to one specimen held in the Melbourne Herbarium which suggested the two were closely related. Both these specimens were phylogenetically well segregated from other Coltricia species. I am not sure Tom May would consider two specimens a significant enough sample on which to adopt a full reclassification of Australian material and I would leave the name as C. cinnamomea for now.

    3. John Walter  This set is closer to what I was expecting to see and the lower left image shows the silky fibrillose stipe and white basal tomentum. Gates gives the cap size as 5 - 15 diameter and the cap is described as lilac-grey to greyish ruby. The stipes look very dark in the upper image. One thing I have noticed after working through the images in The Entolomataceae of Tasmania, is that there is a lot of variation in colour with many species. The combination of the tomentose cap, fibrillose stipe, located on wood etc. all points to E. tomentosolilacinum. Could Entoloma tomentosolilacinum be added to the dataset please.

    More bud galls on Black Wattle. I have only seen this sort once. I think they might be caused by Asphondylia glabrigerminis. Species is described in P Kolesik, RJ Adair, G Eick (2010) "Six new species of Asphondylia (Diptera:Cecidomyiidae) damaging flower buds and fruit of Australian Acacia (Mimosaceae", Systematic Entomology 35:250–267. There are some poorly reproduced photos in Adair, R.J., Burgess, T., Serdani, M. and Barber, P. (2009) Fungal associations in Asphondylia (Diptera: Cecidomyiidae) galls from Australia and South Africa: implications for biological control of invasive acacias. Fungal Ecology, 2 (3). pp. 121-134.

    These are bud galls on Black Wattle, which I believe are caused by Dasineura rubiformis. The species is described in Kolesik, P., Adair, R.J., and Eick, G (2005) "Nine new species of Dasineura (Diptera: Cecidomyiidae) from flowers of Australian Acacia (Mimosaceae)", Systematic Entomology 30:454-479. You can find photos on the web from south africa and portugal since this species has been released for biological control of black wattle. It was found not to affect the growth of plantation trees, but drastically reduces seed production and therefore invasiveness. Species is fairly common in Woodlands Historic Park.

    1. zeke1944  Entoloma tomentosolilacium This name was Tentatively given by Genevieve Gates. It is quite a common species in Victoria that grows on wood, mostly fallen logs.

      Reply • 18 Aug

    2. John Walter  I can see why Gates was tentative. It does have a tomemtose cap and it is on wood which is unusual for Entoloma and I guess you could see some lilac in the stipe. I see no metallic lilac in the cap however and the shape is quite different from Gates' photos appearing in the Noordeloos and Gates paper in Persoonia in 2007, and in the 2012 book on Tasmanian Entoloma. You can readily download the paper as a pdf by Googling "Preliminary Studies in the Genus Entoloma in Tasmania", refer plate 20. Part 1 was in 2007 and Part 2 appeared in 2009. The book is more comprehensive but the pdf papers are free. I can be a bit forgiving when it comes to colour but the big broad umbo makes this one look quite different.

    3. zeke1944  Have posted the other time I have found this in the Otways. It generally does not have an umbo and the specimen of the initial image is probable unusual it was also on a very juicy log and quite vigorous.

      • John Walter  Sorry to be a pain, but if the second set is a different time and location then it is best done as a separate post. This set is closer to what I was expecting to see and the lower left image shows the silky fibrillose stipe and white basal tomentum. Gates gives the cap size as 5 - 15 diameter and the cap is described as lilac-grey to greyish ruby.

This is the same date as this posting however you advise this is in the Otways. Can you confirm the location please. It is the aim of this site to accurately record species, location, date and time in a useful database and this is reflected in these groups also. If using composite images, they should be of the same specimen or group and definately the same location. Cheers

      Reply • 17 Aug

    2. John Walter  I am not sure there is enough evidence to record it as Camarophyllopsis kearneyi. It clearly looks to be a Camarophyllopsis species, but the stipe seems too pale and we cannot see the full upper surface of the pileus to confirm the darker centre. Young describes the pileus margin as crenulate and shows it strongly so in his line drawing however his image in the same publication indicates this is not a constant feature. The correct genus is Camarophyllopsis, not Camarophyllus. Could Camarophyllopsis spp. be added to the database please.

      Reply • 16 Aug

      • zeke1944  Best Google the relationship it will explain it better than me. Basically ia Lichen is a symbiotic relationship between an Algae and a fungus. Most of the Fungi are ascomycota but several belong to Basidiomycota. Several of these are Corals. I'm not sure about Lichenomphalina.

        Reply • 16 Aug

      • John Walter  This gets more than a little confusing, especially as lichens are a composite organism, sometimes encompassing species from three different Kingdoms. All lichens have a fungal partner (mycobiont) but not all fungi produce lichens. Lichens are traditionally classified under the genus and species of the mycobiont and a lichenized fungus is really just another name for a lichen. This naming convention causes issues in the uncommon instances of a "chimera" lichen, more correctly known as a photosymbiodeme. Given the right fungal species and circumstances you could find that the mycobiont's mycelium forms one lichen when in contact with a particular algal species, and, if another part of the same mycelium comes into contact with the right cyanobacterium species, it also forms a completely different looking lichen that would rightly be classified as a different species. This is a conundrum for the taxonomy experts as technically both of the lichens in this example should have the same name as they share the one fungal species.

        Reply • 18 Aug

    3. John Walter  These little "helmets" or "shells" are significantly less than one millimetre high and wide and are a special structure produced by this lichen to release "conidia" or asexual spores. The structure is known as a "campylidium" and the shape is quite distinctive on this species. The thallus of this lichen lacks a cortex or skin so is not readily seen. It is a follicolose species meaning that it occurs on the foliage of plants. It also produces small discs similar to other lichens (less than 0.5 mm diameter) which release spores resulting from sexual reproduction.
