May be C. aeruginosa, but without microscopic analysis impossible to say either way. More likely to be the commoner of the two species.

The C. aeuruginascens from Australia

The C. aeuruginascens from Australia is a different species which is described at the variety level and should be elevated to species. Index Fungorum got it wrong and synonymized it with C. aeruginascens, and apparently the source you linked is following that. Here is a tree I just made. There are no Australian sequences of Chlorociboria in GenBank, but the NZ material is likely the same. There are two species of Chlorociboria in NZ, C. aeruginascens var. australis and C. argenteniensis.

Here’s an article about it: https://www.researchgate.net/...

C. aeruginascens has been recorded in Australian numerous times.
