Pluteus sp.
    #6759618 - 04/07/07 11:18 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Here's a couple of images of what I suspect to be a Pluteus sp, possibly P readiarum .

Habit: Usually a single fruitbody found on decomposed wood.
Habitat: New Zealand native bush under Leptospermum scoparium and Podocarpus totara.
Cap: 30-40mm diameter, broadly convex to plane, colour light tan/brown sometimes with a darker netted pattern radiating out from the center.
Gills: Attachment free, close to subdistant, colour white, slightly pink in mature specimens.
Stem: 70-75mm long by 3-5mm diameter, equal to slightly thickened at the base, colour light tan, finely pruinose.
Spores: Very light pink in colour.
Anyone agree with P readiarum?

That certainly is a possibility. Another (that I found on this page) that seems to resemble it is P. minor.

You seem to be finding some really different stuff down there - stuff not like what I ever see here.

Happy mushrooming!

Hi ToxicMan:cool:
Your right P. minor also resembles this one, I have images of another Pluteus sp that I think is closer, I'll post pics soon!
I'm always amazed at the fungal diversity this country has to offer, I believe there are a lot of species that haven't been described.
Happy hunting!

I wouldn't be at all surprised if there are lots of undescribed species there. The last estimate I heard by a professional here was that we have probably described about a third of the species that are actually here. The hard part isn't finding a new species, it's having an idea that maybe what you've found is something truly different and worth looking at more closely.

Happy mushrooming!

Indeed, many mushrooms are dismissed as the common representative of a genus, yet if for some reason, study is conducted to verify relation, it is often, if not usually, discovered to be a distinct species, macroscopically indistinguishable from it's relative- what with phenotypic variation within species ("strains").
