CONT

Small wet mossy meadow on barren scree slope, ~600 m. Tufted or densely turfy plants forming low circular mounds.

CONT

On the soggy, mossy meadows we found an abundance of Laccaria sp. B and a small brown cortinar, possibly Cortinarius veronabrunneus. Ascomycetes included yellow discs of Discinella terrestris, brown discs of another species of Discinella and of Jafneadelphus asperulus, distinguishable from J. ferrugineus (in Bruce Fuhrer [1993] A Field Companion to Australian Fungi ...) by its smaller ascospores which have smaller and more crowded warts or tubercles.
