Fungi pictures

The names in parentheses are those identified by Tom May (Melbourne Royal Botanic gardens).

He writes:

General tip about fungal photos: get close (fill the frame with the fungus), and show the underside of the fungus (gills, pores etc.). One way is to pull out a fruit body of a group and lay it next to the others with the underside visible. If I haven't been able to identify the picture, usually because I can't tell from the photo (not close enough of need other information not visible), but note that many species are yet to be named, and those that are named can be difficult to identify just from photos (may need to know microscopic details for precise identification).

Pigeon house

(Austroboletus sp. (will have pores underneath))

Bass bush

(looks more like Peziza whitei (native truffle))

link An interesting fungus with points.(Lepiotaceae sp.)

link This orange fungus probably is attacking the tree.(could be Gymnopilus pampeanus)
