those caps look like bundt cakes!
although it is difficult to find many images of either of these curious mycenas, the ones that I did locate showed one pretty clear difference…the Mycena mamaku had approx. twice as many gills as Mycena detrusa, and they even seem to be split (see Michael’s photo). Of course, it could be just lamellulae, but the one gill that is clearly depicted does seem to bifurcate from a common base. And, it sounds as though, at least in NZ, detrusa is a misnomer.
I haven’t seen any images of the two species I mentioned, I just read that they were similar in the notes for the description of M. mamaku.
It’s occurrence in New Zealand is uncertain according to the Landcareresearch site and collections from here that are considered to be that species are only named that tentatively!
