A yellow to olive-yellow Pluteus species (Fungi, Agaricales) has been observed on a number of Field Naturalists Club of Victoria Fungi Group forays. It was thought to be P. lutescens based on images found in some fungi feld guides. Detailed examination of the pileus cuticle (pileipellis) revealed a cutis in transition to a trichoderm with long cylindrical terminal cells. Tis is inconsistent with P. lutescens, which has a hymenoderm layer of almost spherical infated cells. Te characteristics of this Pluteus were compared with a number of other species, namely P. pauperculus (= P. lutescens sensu K. Grifths), P. romellii, P. chrysophlebius and the species in Pluteus stirps Leoninus for which our species seemed to have an afnity. It was concluded that the characteristics did not match any of the species examined, which would suggest that this species is undescribed.

Since June 2007, Leucopaxillus cerealis (Fungi: Agaricales) has been observed growing under eucalypts in garden beds at the Monash University Clayton campus, in suburban Melbourne, Victoria. A description ofthe fungus is given, which represents the first record of the species from Australia. Significant variation in the appearance of the fruit-bodies was observed between occurrences in different years, possibly because of different weather conditions. The antibiotic properties of this species could have important implications for Australian environments.

This paper reports observations of breeding activity of Australasian Grebes Tachybaptus novaehollandiae, the movement and survival of a nest when the water-level rose rapidly, and an intruding Grebe feeding one of the resident birds' young.
