Cruentomycena viscidocruenta but…
don’t know if I’m ready to call it that.

There is a book for mycena in Au; The Genus Mycena in South-eastern Australia by C.A.Grgurinovic. (I don’t have it)

Mycena viscidocruenta

Clive , I tried to add the above name to this fungi, but the site tells me it is a “Depreciated Name” and so was unable to enter it. I wasn’t sure about the name the site automatically suggested. So I left it for an update later if you have one or the time. Chow, KK

I think I would be looking at Mycena viscidocruenta the decurent gills, cap shape, small size, red colour and substrate are all corect for this species. The lack of a glutinous stipe is the only concern but in dry conditions this would not surprise me.

Damn Ian, OZ is the realm of technicolor fungi fer sure! Gorgeous…
