Cymatoderma sp. seams like a good a genus as any. There are no records of the genus in New Zealand but landcare website does say its present sort of contradicting its self a bit!! I dont think its Cymatoderma elegans though but do recall that it has white spores.

Not C. elegans

which is a common Australian species. Ian Dodd has some great pictures of Cymatoderma elegans on this site. I don’t have any ideas on this one…

Hymenochaetae? Podoscyphaceae?

EDIT: or better yet, Cymatoderma… any takers?
