This rather interesting fungi comes in a number of different forms. Michael has shown us one which is a robust yellow/red capped one with orange gills and in my experience the lest common. the others can be seen on my website here. http://hiddenforest.co.nz/...

I remember you posting this species on Shroomery a few years ago!

Looks like all the photos have been deleted though. You should make another observation with the photos lost in that thread! That collection was even stranger looking than this. I think there were more fibrils, giving them a really scaly appearance.

It is a blackening species of Hygrocybe similar to Hygrocybe conica there is also another species that is yellow!
It only occurs in New Zealand and Australia.

Bertrandia was formerly included in Hygrocybe

Looks like a hairy capped cross between an entoloma and an hygrocybe!
