Rob what a great looking fungus. Not one I've seen before. Is the colour in the image true? I ask this because it is very unusual for this group of fungi. Boletales, that I've placed this under, is an order (in taxonomic terms) and sits higher and includes all the different families of what is loosely termed 'bolete' fungi. Unfortunately many of these fungi have yet to be identified in Australia and therefore named. By placing your fungus in this group it is saved for future investigation and as we gain more knowledge hopefully a name! Thank you for contributing to and expanding our knowledge of what's 'out there'. Do you remember what colour the stem (stipe) was? This group of fungi tend to be mycorrhizal, that is associated with plant roots with both organisims helping each other. So if you note the nearby trees or other plants it can be helpful to increase ourt knowledge of these associations.

Pam The photo was taken in low light, but in no way is it "enhanced". You can see the colour of the stipe in the second photo. Thanks for the advice re surrounding trees and plants Rob
