and seeing that they are on tree roots they are now starting to remind me of very young Armillaria. Looking at your region I found this.


can barely make them out

but they do look light colored. though Xeromphalina campanella do have at time lighter stalks, darker towards base.

Stipes indicated here. Gills are not visible due to being under the caps (photo taken from above)

I will take better pics tomorrow. They are growing where I eat my lunch at work so I shouldn’t forget…

My gut reaction was Xeromphalina campanella, though you are located half a world away and habitat is unfamiliar to me. Still that’s my strong impression.

The photo is a little blurry and I have seen samples on our site that aren’t as distinctly striate or show the perfect navels in each cap. Still, I keep wanting to say Xeromphalina.
