Description Entoloma hochstetteri

Location: Swans Crossing State Forest, New South Wales, Australia

Notes: This fungi was photographed at Swans Crossing Forestry reserve. The fungi stands about 70mm in height and is a mature specimen. Aging causes loss of blue colour saturation, and dark spots appear around the edges of the cap and outermost gills. I have not been able to find a record of ths fungi in my Australian references, but Clive shirley has a specimen on his excellent website. It appears to be free from insect attack as far as I have noticed.
I have photographed several of these over a period of time, and have noticed that the stem has slowly rotating grooves extending up from the base to the top of the stipe where it meets the cap. I will go through my records for previous images and post them when I locate an image that is worth showing. Clive also agrees with me about the loss of saturation in the fungi with age. I have only found this fungi in single appearances, where Clive has seen them in groups. This may be native to Australia.
