…my mushroom reminds me of a pale M. interrupta, which DOES occur in this part of the world. To my relatively untrained eye, M. interrupta seems to bear some visual similarities to M. subcaerulea (apart from the brilliant blue colour, of course.)Wonder if the two species are related???

I’m pretty sure that M. subcaerulea doesn’t occur in southern Australia, unfortunately…

Looks similar to a bluing Mycena sp.

Could this species be something similar to Mycena subcaerulea? I’ve been trying to ID it, but can’t really get any closer than that.
