When I first saw this fungi, I thought it was of the Boletus genus. After removing it from the tree trunk, (it was growing outwards horizontal to the forest floor)and cutting it in half, there were “Gills” present. I wish now that I had left it till next visit, to see the more mature fungi, but that is now not to be. I did notice that right on the very top of the cap in the centre there were signs of droplets of fluid or clear liquid of some description. It was very minute. The specimen was about 3.5 cm from base to cap top.
I did think it resembled “Cortinarius areolatoimbricatus” BUT these grow in clusters on the ground according to my reference. The fungi shown was a single specimen.
