Asero? rubra A stinkhorn from New Zealand. The whole fruit body is pink, arising from an oval white ?egg? with the glebal disk showing dark, sticky, spore mass, the ?tentacles? are strong reddish colour grouped in pairs, normally up to as much as 10cm in height. This is a very very rare fungus, only one record found outside greenhouses in the whole of the northern hemisphere. Found on mixed woodland litter on acid soil. It is native to New Zealand and Australia and other areas in the southern hemisphere. Presumably it was imported on garden plants that had been introduced from the southern hemisphere.

Antrodia xantha (Fr. Fr.) Ryv.

Soft when fresh then brittle, bitter tasting. Pores small 4-6 per mm. Spores small, smooth 4-5x1-1.5um. Very similar in appearance to Antrodia serialis which has larger spores.
Antrodia sinuosa (Fr.) Karst. A creamy coloured rusipinate crust with rudimentary caps with exposed tubes, the leathery growth can be quite extensive, it can quite easily be detached from the substrate. Spores are smooth 6.5-9x3-4um. Found on dead spruce wood and occasionally on other conifers. It can be found at any time of year.
Antrodia serialis (FR.) Donk Szalagtapl? (tapl?). A rusupinate which forms patches on spruce wood that can be at least 20 cm. Across, tending to form mini tough leathery brackets. Where it turns up to make the little brackets it shows ochre-brown colours, the pore /under surface is white, pores 2-4 per mm. Found on dead conifer wood (mostly on spruce (Picea), at any time of the year. Not common. Spores 6.5-9x3-4um.
Amanita strobiliformis (Vitt.) Quel. Cafrangos gal?ca. Sometimes other authors use the name Amanita solitaria for this mushroom. Cap 15-25cm white, with large plate-like grey remnants of the volva. Stem large 15x5cm, white with a ring. Gills white. Flesh white. Spores 12x8??. Found on chalk or limestone beech woods. Said to be edible, but I advise against because of the possibility of confusion with poisonous white species. Europe.
