…it’s not Dermocybe splendida which Karl mentions in my link below is now Cortinarius persplendidus Gasp.

I wonder if your specimens might be C. veronicae which is found in New Zealand Nothofagus forests, it has also been found in Tasmania, do you have any alkaline reagents you could use to check for reactions on the various parts of the fruit body, C. veronicae has a blood red reaction on the cap surface, reddish-lilac to red on the gills and bluish lilac on the stipital veil, these reactions show that the fungus contains anthraquinonic pigments and is genetically close to subgenus Dermocybe.

You’re right :o)

Thanks for pointing this out Michael. Just wondering now if it’s a Dermocybe splendida…

Not sure about this being Cortinarius cramesinus, that species has a squamulose cutis, this looks as though it was glabrous?
