Observation 200200: Gliophorus viscaurantius E. Horak

Maybe Hygrocybe calyptriformis. Cap slightly sticky and bright shiny Red.(Not velvety or Satin like.) The stipe in direct light displayed an Orange colour rather than the bright Red of the cap. Found on Eucalyptus Semi rain forest embankment, (soil), with small immature specimen in close proximity.

Looked at 63264 and have to agree . Nature knows no limits in distance it would seem.

but so similar…

Observation 63264

D.V. Stipe state

The stipe/stem although only a bit over 1cm in length I hesitated to say it was slimy also as the surface ground was still wet, but I would have to say that the stipe showed similar slightly sticky to touch feature as the cap. I have been caught out with our extremely high humidity and rain action on some fungi so……?? deliberate when doing the write up. (short thick digits do not help hoho.)

was the stem slimy too?

that would make it a Gliophorus. Lovely little wax cap, regardless of genus!

this is not Hygrocybe/Humidicus calyptriformis, which is a pink, peaked cap wax cap.
