Thank you all. @ Nicole. the stem is like wire and the cap is at most 3/8 inch in diameter. I have uploaded the white variety found in a similar area: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/706.... Somewhere I have a shot of the orange variety; I'll try to find and post it also.

These are amazing!
How can such a tiny stem hold the umbrella?
And those colours!
Wonderful spotting!
