Lack of unpleasant odor makes my “foetidum” proposal seem rather unlikely… not that someone with my mainly eastern North American experience is likely to nail an Australian species, anyway. But Micromphale foetidum looked like a good place to start. Index Fungorum puts M. foetidum into Gymnopus.

Specimen doesn’t have what I would call an unpleasant aroma. Smells like “Gumnut” (found on our Gum trees){The hard woody fruit of trees of the genus Eucalyptus.} kk
