An hypogeous Telamonia with ballistospores and a persistent veil. I believe that this is an undescribed species related to Cortinarius debbiae that Trappe & Claridge briefly mention in this article from Aus Myco.

There are only two hypogeous corts described from Australia with a persistent veil and ballistospores. One is Dermocybe globuliformis and the other is Cortinarius debbiae (I thought you might like that name) and these don’t match either so I’m assuming it’s undescribed. I don’t know how something so cool could remain unnamed! They’re just so odd.
Reminds me of our Sierran hypogeous corts…
Thanks for the link to the Trappe paper.
I agree…the spores shown here are too ornamented to be Cortinarius debbiae. BTW, love the name! ;)
