Nice photos, I have a soft spot for Camarophyllopsis.

Alan, if you have the specimens you should make some vertical radial sections of the pileipellis to check for a hymeniform layer with inflated terminal cells, if you have Largent’s book, How to Identify Mushrooms to Genus 6: Modern Genera you can read about the macroscopic and microscopic characteristics of that genus under Hygrotrama.

There is an example of a typical pileipellis made up of a hymeniform layer at this observation.

Here is two more links to two other species from NZ, these two and the one above are all undescribed species.

Great photos of a neat mushroom. Might need some microcharacters to ID it.
