..definitely doesn’t match the descriptions for that species, Dermocybe splendida was described from four collections from NZ, it’s also found in Oz and supposedly the material agrees in all morphological characteristics with the NZ material.

matches what gets called D. splendida in Au, no doubt a different species then what is in NZ.

Not convinced…

…I’m not convinced that this is Cortinarius persplendidus, that species has an umber to black pileus and the stipe is yellow to saffron yellow with very dark brown, almost black stipital veil remnants, need more information to be sure but pretty certain this is not C. persplendidus.

Considered C. cardinalis but that species has a viscid pileus, also considered C. cramesinus but that species has a squamulose pileus.

Either way, this would be great for dying, those are excellent anthraquinonic pigments:)
