Scarlet waxcap

Hygrocybe coccinea


Approximately 24mm wide and 35mm tall. Very red cap and stipe which was narrow, straight and smooth. Gills were pale orange/yellow.


In a grassy area among open eucalyptus forest. Dandenong Ranges NP.


Another one I haven't found before in spite of years searching. Almost trod on this walking along a grassy desire-path but I just noticed a flash of red and stopped.
