Another species that the mycologist just don't seem to be able to make up their minds over whether A. novae-zelandiae is a separate species from the Australian species A. lacunosus or if these are the same species and if the same species which name is the correct. It very much depends on which website you use as a reference, I could not find two that agreed with each other.
