I got no responses last year when I posed this question at around the same time of year. The photo shows what I assume is the same type of fungus but it has appeared in a different location. Do we still not have any fungi experts out there?

Thanks for that, Oron, and good to have you back, you've been missed. Useful to know that this particular fungus is poisonous so keep the grandchildren away from it.
