Not from wood.

So I just deleted Tricholomopsis as a possibility.

I see greenish gills, or yellow-green gills. I think it unlikely to be a Cortinarius with yellow-green gills.

But I’ve been wrong before. Ah, diversity!

It definitely wasnt growing from wood. next time possible ill head back to the location and check to be sure.

are mycorrhizal. Meaning there must have been trees/shrubs nearby. Not necessarily large.

If growing from wood, probably Tricholomopsis.

i found this species twice both in a similar environment in two different locations. I’m not completely sure but im pretty sure there wasnt any significant nearby tree’s. there was a lot of deadfall around but no specific trees that i was aware of.

Doesn’t this look more

like a Cortinarius?

While Eucalypts are the obvious first choice for most areas of Australia, it’s better to have confirmation. Many fungi are associated with single species of trees or shrubs. Including that in your observation, if you know, is helpful in trying to determine species.
