Observation 20604: Pluteus Fr.

This small fungi was a single specimen growing in sandy loam. The reserve is a coastal reserve consisting of native Flora. The main growths are Banksia and Casuarinas with Eucalypts in the more open areas. The cap was about 10-12mm across and the stipe about 25mm. The gills were well spaces and the fungi was delicate. The stipe was almost translucent, and both the stipe and mantle were not sticky, although there was some soil particles evident on the stipe. The stipe was easily broken and not fibrous. There was no aroma to identify.

Recognized by sight: Considering the size of this mushroom, I’d say the gills are very dense. That points towards a Pluteus, and so does the structure of the cap and stem.
A pity there is nothing to do microscopy on. I think that makes a 100% ID impossible.
