No idea about fungi! :) Larger one possibly 10cm in diameter. Found near the Noosa River, Cooloola National Park.
Amanita section Lepidella, not sure which species exactly.
Beautiful! it looks made from Plaster of Paris (POP). :))
Beautiful photos, beautiful fungi!
Nice job, beautiful mushrooms.
@duneanuVlad. I also read article about huge pink slug. It is amazing.....
Really beautiful series of this mushroom at just the right moment!
Looks like an iced cake on a stand - brilliant spotting!
:) 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.
Nice and interesting.
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 !!
Have a look at Amanita ananiceps maybe
Incredible !! Agaricus.....
