Cortinarius sp.?

Cortinarius sp.?


Large golden-yellow/brown agaric mushroom, possibly Cortinarius sp. Approximately 15 cms in diameter with fairly large, deep gills, and no ring (that I could see). Smooth glossy cap, almost metallic in appearance. From a distance I thought it was a discarded can, the way it was glistening in the sunlight. Only one specimen found in area. Growing amongst eucalyptus leaf litter.


Bungoona Track in Bald Rock National Park, NSW. Native eucalypt forest.
