Thank you Andrew Allanson for identifying this species for us
General Species Information:
Found on Ellura (in the Murray Mallee) & in the Adelaide Hills
This is the only specimen of this species we've found so far, but it fruited well so we suspect another nearby.
It is well protected under a Sugarwood, surrounded by dead/fallen Callitris branches. As such it's well shaded from the sun and wind; which it seems to thrive on.
