I was walking in a wooded area outside of Launceston with some eucalyptus trees in December (summer).
This rotted mushroom caught my attention because of the purple color settled around the edges of the cap.
Its obviously rotted and the image is poor.
There are 2 images and the side view of the mushroom catches the purple staining on the stem and gills better, but its the same purple on the cap (which the photo doesn't do justice). The purple has settled around the edges of the cap like an old liberty cap would appear.
Because its so rotted, there were not spore prints to be had. I cannot see if there's a veil.
Its surprisingly big and heavy.
