There weren't as many fungi as previous seasons at this site (although I'd only been there once before). Meandering about I saw the Entoloma-like cap of a mushroom but as I was about to examine it someone called me away. Even though I ventured no more than 5 metres, when I turned around to retrace my steps I got lost and it took me a bit longer to find this individual again. It just highlights how easy it is to miss something not greatly contrasting with its surrounds. When I went to inspect the gills I noticed the entire stipe was an aberrant growth of extra gills, giving it a morel-like appearance.

However the most significant find would be the rare tea tree fingers Hypocreopsis amplectens. I have searched for this fungus before in known locations but never seen any and this is the first new locality in over a decade. At this site they seemed to favour Kunzea logs lying on the ground where the moisture is better retained.

In the Western Gully Loop we found some small, white corals that were simple or sparsely branched. These are possibly Ramariopsis kunzei and I have seen them this season in a variety of other places including Blackwood and Kurth Kiln and they seem to like earthen banks.

As fruiting fungi were not visibly abundant we started searching for invertebrates under logs. In doing so we also found Coltriciella dependens, a fungus not commonly recorded but not that rare once you start looking at the underside of long lying on the ground. We also found some invertebrates as well as some amazing, tiny, possible egg cases.
