Habitat and Substrate: Grows from the soil
Description: These photos were taken by Geoff and I over a period of about a week. We found them when they were small and Geoff went back to check on them, so he did all the hard work really. We never got an I.D on them until they were fully ‘open’. As you can see they change a great deal over their short lifespan, as does majority of the fungi. When mature they can be up to 10cm in diameter with the cap having dark scales on an almost white background. There is also a distinct annulus and gills are white.
