Rank amateur; newbie to fungi; retired economist. Originally intrigued by observing Amanita muscaria in England on holiday several years ago, and interest stimulated by several planter box fungi in years following. Blown away by huge local fungal fruiting during covid lockdown in mid-2020 - a concatenation of the end of a severe drought; good rains since early 2020 (especially a La Niña summer in 2020/21); and a cessation of playing field (and other) mowing during covid lockdown. Ably supported by enthusiastic fungus hunter (Robyn) and mycologists at universities of Sydney and Queensland.
