Unusual spheroid fungus with small, hexoid, orange opening at the top. The heads are about 25mm wide. There is a very rough dark stem almost head width and about two to three times the head length.
Growing from loosened reddish soil on a damp embankment. This was within the darkest area of a non-eucalyptus rainforest. The area was also heavily dug over by lyrebirds.
Hardened caps usually fall of these by this stage but were not seen.
This species was the target and purpose of our journey on the day.
