Thanks for that Michel. I had forgotten about this one. Yes I agree Heterotextus is very likely. I have been recently talking to another local fungi guy and he said the same thing (Heterotextus miltinus) but I forgot to come back to this one.

I have found a plausible answer!!!! The name, I think, of this amazing mushroom is: Heterotextus.
Author and founder of FUNGI magazine and wellknown myco-enthousiast Britt Bunyard posted a comment on a photo made by Jeff Gibson. The photo shows a mushroom looking exactly like your spotting! Britt calls it Heterotexta in the comment, but I couldn't get any hits. I found out it should be Heterotextus instead. Here's the link:

Awesome shape, colour and texture, Mark! Great find. I'm very curious to know what it could be. I have very very little knowledge about Asco's, especially those cool looking exotic ones.
