I didn’t actually consider that this may be a secotioid mushroom… but rather just an immature specimen. Now that you have said that, it makes a lot of sense. Perhaps this is a more interesting observation than I first thought.

It did catch my attention when I first saw it and I spent a long time searching for more, but to no avail.

I think Gastrocybe is the genus of sequestrate fungi in the Bolbitaceae family. Thanks for the comment.

I seem to remember there being a secotioid mushroom related to Conocybe lactea that resembles this. The cap just stays kind of crumpled against the stipe and never really opens.

And you seem to have a lot of weird, secotioid fungi down under.
