Author's notes

There are a number of these scattered around the upper areas of the grounds. Like the Hypholoma they tend to be gathered around clumps of vegetation growing around rotting trunks of felled trees.

You've done it again! I'm not familiar with this species........ Was it soft like a bolete or hard and woody like a stalked polypore?

They are dry and woody with very little 'give' in them at all ... could almost mistake them for the black, burned bark of a fallen tree trunk that they are neighbour to.

Beats me! Seeing it's so hard I'll just go with Polypore! It could be an old Amauroderma rude, though the stipe looks too pale. Yet another fungal mystery.

Could possibly be a old Strobilomyces sp.

There are several clumps of the same fungi all around that general area ... all black, all fairly hard but only this one with the elegant rings and spots.
Pam wrote:

That thought had crossed my mind. However, no it doesn't appear to be a Strobilomyces, a boletoid fungus, as it's too hard, the rings and spots, the shape and colour of the stipe. I was recently shown some Amauroderma rude specimens that were black like image four and had very similar characteristics to the first three images, though without the spots as seen in image one.

I'm going with a 'suggestion' that this is Amauroderma rude. Question for you: Do you ever see any of these when they are fresh/young? Why I ask this, is that I'm trying to put a handle on if it definitely is A. rude, is it that colour from the get go or is it just an ageing thing. I'll follow this with great interest......

If you mean by 'young', supple and possibly less blackened, then I believe the answer is no, even when they are small too I find them to be hard and black. I will walk around all the sites where these are sitting and check them for texture and so on and get back to you.

When the Amauroderma is very young it looks like a dark rounded stick with a white top, bit like a match but much more robust and of course way larger. As they mature the top expands to form the typical cap. I meant to ask; Do you know this species? They tend to come up around the base or nearby to trees, we usually see them near dead/dying wattles trees and stumps here. Those 'fossilised' old specimens can hang around most of the year with the fresh ones tending to come at the end of the year and early into the new year - that's here by the way.

I haven't noticed this particularly but then at the beginning of the year I wasn't attached to the Nature Map so perhaps observed things but not thoroughly. No photographs. These ones are all nearer fallen logs, felled long before we came here (here 5/6 years). The are where I have let bushes grow around the fallen logs. I though I had three patches but find I have only two and the one with the spots and rings is not fading it is that others appear to be developing similar markings. They are quite bendy and not friable ie, not desiccated - no matter what size they are the caps can be bent without breaking. The third clump I thought we had turned out to be, presumably, many puff balls as they appeared similar although also easily mistaken for wombat scat - I will put them on a separate entry.

Today I found another of these Polypores with the ring markings, down by another fallen and rotting log, where the 'extruded' white fungus grows.

Thanks for the update. I can now confirm this sighting.

Oh ... Good News!

PS I also found some similar looking ones here at home.
ClydeRiver wrote:
   12 Jul 2019
Oh, thats good. I noticed that a number of small ones have the pale rings too now, which I hadn't seen before. Also many are inhabited by tiny white mites ... any idea what they might be? I don't really have the gear to photograph them and I realize that this is not supposed to be your area of expertise. Squarish front part and long finger eggplant shaped body but pure white and teeny weeny ...
