5picklefamily, like I have already mentioned to you, please be checking ranges before you suggest IDs. The fungi you suggested is only found in the
Northern Hemisphere, Australia is not in the Northern Hemisphere. You should only be suggesting IDs if both range and looks are similar. Not checking these things before you suggest an ID leads users to incorrect IDs.

Nice find, Mac. Awesome mushie. Good luck with the ID too. That's usually when I start to pull my hair out.

Any pictures of the gills. The stipe looks bulbous at the base which further makes this id difficult... See http://www.mushroomexpert.com/hygrocybe_...
