Observation 7932: Agaricales sensu lato

I did a little better this time. Two shots of the same fungi,., But that’s where it stops. This was the most frgile fungi I think I have ever photographed. The cap as you can see is translucent with the most wonderful gil display. I have only ever seen and photographed this once. I have often returned to the spot hoping to get some more images but that has never been the case. Maybe it is common in other parts of the world but till now I have only the two images. The cap in the second image tends to be curling inward continuously and the stem has what appears to be grooves or lines slowly rotating up the stem. The fungi is in its natural habitat growing from the splintered end of a dead trunk. The cap seems to have an almost clear fringe (outer edge) that almost looks like another layer separating from the cap. I think this is an illusion and is part of the one cap. The whole fungi was about 3cms in height
