Two sporing bodies. One sporing body with some evidence of animal eating it, the other sporing body with lots of pieces eaten off the edge of the pileus.

Interior with mottled core comprised of small dark brown nodules in white matrix - contrasting the the rest of the flesh which is yellowish.

Pore surface with a bloom that is disrupted when handled, as can be seen by the spotting on the underside view.

It may be this species. But I dare not exclude Juncus aridicole, which has been found here more. @karenwilsonau Can you take a look at this plant and say whether Juncus aridicola can be ruled out? We found more species from Australia and New Zealand, so this one would be a new one for the list.

Juncus 60cm tall with green and hard stems (difficult to compress), not glaucous, about 2,5mm diam. or a bit more. Striations conspicuous, not crowded, about 45 or a bit more than 50. Stomates superficial. Pith interrupted with small lacunae. Upper cataphylls short max. 10cm and loose, yellow brown distally, darkbrown to base. Inflorescence condensed, normally with one head. Lower bract not dilated beneath the inflorescence. All tepals with broad membrenous margins. Stamens 3. Capsules triseptate, equalling perianth. Herbarium material collected for Naturalis.

Different from two species that occur here as well. From Juncus edgariae, which has normally thinner stems, multi-headed inflorescence and narrower trilocular capsules. Different from Juncus procerus, which is more robust with longer cataphylls and thicker and softer stems with more crowded striations and larger lacunae.

On the last few pics. left Juncus astreptus and right Juncus edgariae in compare.

It has been confirmed that a lot of wool has also been imported from Tasmania in the past in the Vesder valley.
