Found growing in the ash from still burning bushfires

Question

Can anyone ID this one? They were some about the diameter or a tennis ball up to nearly dinner plate size! The fire wis literally still smouldering metres away and they were fruiting.

I'm still excited about this one but have done fuckall about it, sorry.

 

Is it still growing?

 

Is there any chance our Sorcerer's Apprentice and Mistress of Cultures could grab a tissue sample and/ or a coupla H2O2 plates? And a spore print?

 

Anything that comes up in the middle of a fireground so early is prolly a pioneer species, could be environmentally interesting

 

Keep an eye out for fire morels after it rains, and edible native truffles too

Lenzites elegans maybe?

 

Your pics made me think of the mushroom which often gets mistaken for a bleached Trametes. One of the mushroom groups on FB might be able to help out, SEQ fungi, Fungimap or Australian Wild Mushroom Hunters

laccocephalum hartmannii or a form of is my guess

check out the pseudo-sclerotia. This one was growing in burnt brushbox forest. and there is still heaps of material around to get it into culture. Let me know and i can grab some @Darklight

Is that the inside of the pseudo-sclerotia or the fruit? I'm guessing the former. If so, it doesn't look very appetising, might be a good one to inoculate onto seedlings for re-veg work

 

What are you up to tomorrow? I'll pour these plates out tonight. And try not to pour too many different agar types, we all know how that ends up

 

If the inside of the fruit looks easier to culture and breaks up/ cuts well I'd love to grab a fresh fruit from either you or Niggles or both

 

I'll bring some fresh H2O2 MEA plates for you both too. Best to have 'em fresh before the H2O2 goes off. Never know what you'll find in a hot forest :)

I collected from each of these guys. The underside looks very different to @teamwhy photos. Very white and many irregular shaped pores.
