Description

Common. Emerging from around the exposed roots of silver birch (Betula pendula) trees growing in Rotokura Lakes car park.

Thallus dirty dark brown to yellow-brown (distinctly more yellow on margins and underside of thallus near gills otherwise brown), virtually immersed in ground (so appearing like an earthball / [puff ball (see images)), near roots of assumed host tree (birch). Cap up to 40 mm diameter, 'bun-shaped' with central depression scarcely evident, surface rugose. Gills white. Stalk tapering to apex, most immersed in leaf litter and soil, dirty yellow-brown, 20 mm diameter at base, narrowing to 15 mm diameter near apex

Stalk and gills exuding minute droplets of milky exudate (just visible in the image showing the gills and stipe).

I am assuming this is Lactarius turpis - as it is virtually identical to http://naturewatch.org.nz/observations/3001031

Description

I think this is the right genus - though I observed no milky exudate (but then I wasn't looking either - my thinking here is based on other postings I made of similar looking 'shrooms' all of which were then put in this genus).

Uncommon - seen several times merging from dense leaf litter under red beech (Fuscospora fusca) in silver beech (Lophozonia menziesii) / red beech (Fuscospora fusca) forest.

Looks a tad like http://naturewatch.org.nz/observations/3001031 except gills yellow and no Betula present at this site - though it does occur c. 1 km away in Rotokura Lakes Car Park with Lactarius turpis.

Description

Uncommon, seen occasionally on forest floor under mountain beech (Fuscospora cliffortioides). Thallus often half buried in leaf litter, Cap 40 mm diameter, deeply concave, pink (darker pink centrally) much munched by invertebrates (I guess), smooth. Gills white. Stalk stout, pale pink, smooth, 10 mm diameter, 30 mm long.

Choice of genus is based on the adage that if you use a name enough times eventually you will get it right...LOL

Description from Wikipedia

The Russulaceae are a family of fungi in the order Russulales. According to a 2008 estimate, the family contains 1243 species. Its species typically have fruit bodies with friable, chalk-like stalks, that break with a distinct crack, somewhat like a carrot but with porous flesh (see below). Microscopically, the cells are not all long thin hyphae, which would provide strength and more fibrous appearance when broken. Instead, the flesh contains also many large spherical cells ("sphaerocysts"),...
