Called earth stars.

possibly Gaestrum triplex

or Gaestrum veluntinum

Could only tell the difference with a microscope and a spore print.

I have heaps of pictures of weird fungi, have been doing an assignment on them...

Well... There is a mushroom in the New Zealand forest with enough toxin to kill thre people in it... I shouldn't really say which one as it contains a toxin the blocks the RNA polymerase in DNA transciption which effectively shuts down cellular processs ending in fairly quick liver failure.....
IE dont eat stuff you can't identify hehe....

Science ruins every thing I almost spend more time looking at plants and bugs than I do hunting when out..... fungi is quite interesting though.
Also its illegal to harvest magic mushrooms hehe... there heaps growing in forests though.

Madness Your not wrong about there being very few amounts of reb and purple fungi etc.
I pretty sure your meaning the Pouch Fungi that you find in the Kaimanawa's especially that purple one.
Its been to dry and thoose types of fungi dont have gills and can't let there spores go into the air they are spread by Insects so any that have come up have been eaten very quickly by the insects that are still quite numerous because of the dry warm weather. Next year if its warm and wet there should be heaps as there dispersal rate of thoose fungis should of been high this year.

your thinking.. "Amanita muscaria, commonly known as the fly agaric or fly Amanita" Its an introduced mushroom to NZ. Not a native. Grows worldwide, and has a reputation Roll Eyes

PS don’t eat them, you will become violently ill, possibly fall into a coma and miss work the next day Grin
