[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is another large fungi I found in the beech forest near Coal Creek falls the other day.,
Tylopilus formosus grows to around 10 mm tall and is found under beech (Nothofagus) and Tea Tree or Manuka (Leptospermum) in Autumn.I thought when I looked at this on the camera,the shot was ok,but I didn't have my glasses with me.I feel it could be a lot better.
Its a cool fungus nonetheless,so i thought it was worth posting.

Hi Steve,
Although Your glasses weren't there with You, the photo became very good. And very interesting to me, too. As far as I know, from Tylopilus genus only T. felleus lives in Europe. Tfs this Boletus-alike from Down Under. Congrats, best regards, László
