Seen and photographed today under heavy tea tree cover on a westerly slope Estate Spur Fraser Park. Quite a bit of light in the area but probably little if any at all direct sunlight would hit them. From a distance I thought it was large bones of some sort but as can be seen, not so. The "What is it_1" was about 20cm across, quite unusual and strangely attractive to my eyes (in an arte farte sort of way that is). There was 2 others slightly smaller maybe 12cm across and that was all that we saw of them all day.
Sorry Neil. Just saw this reply. Can't remember where I saw it but I did read it occured in WA. Couldn't find any reference to it occuring in Vic. Known distribution is one of the first things I look at when trying to ID a plant (or fungi in this case). Agree though that it does look like L. giganteus.
