Notes: I believe these are the same species but only because they’re fruiting near each other and I suspect that they’re Cortinarius sp. The buttons are around 2.2cm across, the older one is 8cm across, with a stipe width, at the apex, of 1.4cm. They’re fruiting in what seemed to be endlessly deep eucalyptus duff. The brown specimen gave a very meager spore deposit of yellow brown.
The spore print is definitely brown so am moving that specimen to it’s own page. I agree that the buttons are Blewits. Thanks Nathan.

I’m pretty sure the buttons are blewits. It looks like the fall into the color range of Clitocybe glaucocana. The older one also looks like it to me as well, but if you’re sure about that spore print then they probably aren’t the same species.
