What a great looking specimen. After a bit of tooing and froing with the name of this species it seems to be settling back down (in Australia) to the genus Oudemansiella and species gigaspora. So again Jackie this seems to be spread over three Xerula entries in the database, the third one which is just Xerula sp. has a range of images. My advice would be to condense them all into one Oudemansiella gigaspora. There is still varying views on this name and in Index Fungorum they list it as Hymenopellis gigaspora and they give this genus for the Xerula radicata etc. as well. I think they decided in Melbourne that maybe they didn't really have a handle on this genus & species so put it under the one I've given you above. Which to me is not good science!

Oh well, as a lumper, I'm inclined to go that way myself. I'll make that change in the species list and add the various other things it has been called in all our fungi books as synonyms.

Many thanks for that Jackie. One of the challenges of life!
