The largest remaining area of ancient Gondwanan rainforest is protected within the Southwest Wilderness Area of Tasmania. The fringes of these rainforests are often dominated by more recent giant Eucalypt trees and are home to a rich and unique flora of fungi, moss and lichens. The diversity of fungi is astonishing, with many species and varieties still to be documented.
