Observation 7929: Agaricales sensu lato

This fungi caught my eye because of the colour and the cap edge which appeared to have spikes, but probably the remnants of a veil?. This will probably be hard to recognise because once again I only took the Photographer’s image. The colours are good and close to the real daylight colour, and flash was not used. The position of the fungi was interesting also. The space in the log was caused by a recent bushfire and a lot of damage was done to this pristine location.
The cap of the fungi was approximatly 2cm across. So it wasnt very big and the stem had that satin look.The stem appeared to have small spike type lumps (warts?) becoming more apparent near the base of the stem. They didnt progress up the stem. The top of the cap was dry, not sticky. I can’t be real sure, but I think the underside had gills. This area is subtropical forest with filtered light through a medium to sparse canopy.
The area was damp and close to a fresh water creek that feeds a waterfall of some significance. (and millions of mosquitos and leeches.).
