Postscript to Monga Rainforests Walk

We found several outcrops of delicate white fungus in the Monga Rainforests on our walk with Ian on Saturday 25 May.  They were very small, porcelain white and had a divided cap, like petals of a flower.  Helen took these remarkable photos and has done some research to identify the fungus.

She’s thinking Humidicutis mavis. Caps to 50mm. “Resembles a white form of H.lewellinae and exhibits the same type of gill-splitting as the cap expands. Usually found in rainforest.”
