Bright yellow capped Fungi in forest soil. Shallow rooted and firm to handle. Unusual and undefined gill structure. Found after heavy rainfall past 24 hours. (over 6 inches). Area semi rainforest and Eucalyptus trees. I noticed that the Yellow cap colouring had faded in a couple of hours by the time I returned home.
The complete fungi is now a singular colour of light brown, and slightly darker than the original underside..

Cantharellus lateritius

Randy L. I think you are closer to the mark with the “smooth” Cantharellus lateritius.Have to wait and see what comments come in. I have put an inquiry into another site so will see what is said from there.

Maybe this is something similar to Cantharellus lateritius.

without the characteristic gills? Is that like a zebra without stripes?
