More hairy mushrooms


As with yesterday's mystery fungus, also growing now in the (at last, wet) forest in Narrawallee, NSW (SE Australia), these could be described as having a fibrillose-scaly cap surface. Are all three Cuphocybe species?

Ophelia! It's been too long. Your title for that beautiful collection of pictures gets to the nub of the problem, doesn't it? I think it's a particularly human one. We see, and need to know the name. Now I think that the top picture in my post here is a member of the Boletaceae family. but I still wouldn't hazard a guess about the cluster of three. Your comment gives me the opportunity to recommend people visit http://annatambour.net/OpheliaKeys.htm
