:) Pfff... 15 out of 250... that still leaves you with a lot of species. Who knows, maybe there are some unidentified ones and this is one of them. Nevertheless, new species are still being discovered in Australia. Just a few weeks ago there was this pink slug. ;)

Yes the usual problem Vlad... Nobody has seen A Strobiliformis in Australia. Still, 250,000 estimated species here and only about 15,000 identified so far... we're all sure to find many unknowns.

I agree, Mark Ridgway, it is an Amanita but I would say it's Amanita Strobiliformis by the looks because A. Ananiceps is brownish, this one is white. I don't know if A. Strobiliformis grows in Australia, but if this would grow at the edge of the forest, I would say that this is it.

So beautiful ! I love the veil remnants around the margin - apart from spotting them at the right time, you have also managed to get great shots of them !!
