Another fungi I saw. Very small, bright red, maybe 1-2cm diameter. Found near the Noosa River, Cooloola National Park.

I'll be back there in mid-august so I'll see if I can find them again.

Unfortunately way too big for Mycena viscidocruenta. (6-8mm) I'd guess Hygrocybe miniata but as GM said... NathBig could you please just nudge it for a peek next time 8-]

The color shows up really well with those leaves!

Perhaps Mycena viscidocruenta or a Hygrocybe species. Unfortunately we'll never be sure without photographs of the gills.

NathBig 8 years ago

No unfortunately. It was very low to the ground.

Nice one Nathan. Incredible colour and looks spongy. Did you see the gills or stem by any chance?
