Roy, I have A.M. Youngs “Fungi of Australia” Hygrophoraceae. (2005) The fungi I found seems to be a bit strange. Green stem and Cream/Pink/White cap. Most Hygrocybe sp. fungi seem to have similar stem and Cap colouring. All of his (A.M Young), and (Bruce Fuhrer’s) images do not show the image I loaded. I did look through his book, (execellent, as you say, ) but still hoping for an ID. Do you have any contact with Young. I do not think he would engage in speculation with me because of my lack of scientic knowledge.
I did not keep a spec. The area that this was located in usually produces a great and varying variety of Fungi at this time of the year. I only was able to work a small area on my last visit. (100metre radius)!
By the way, can you email Nigel’s Brisbane Address. It was missing in your email for some reason. Roy have you visited this site. I have only recently started to access it. I was hoping to find the fungi here, but without luck. http://www.sydneyfungalstudies.org.au/...
Roy, as a matter of interest, MO is the only site I load up to. I have had too many bad experiences with the so called friendly websites here. (but this is only my personal experience.)

Dr. A.M. Young produced a wonderful monograph on Australian Hygrophoraceae. More details needed for an ID. Again, nice find, Ian.
