Banksiamyces macrocarpus – Large Banksia Disc

Only found on old Hairpin Banksia cones. These small blue-grey discs are smooth and slightly concave with a short stem. The discs grow in groups between the seed capsules. When conditions are dry, the disc curls inward and shrivels to look like a pale grey knob on a stem.
