    You find some beautiful specimens Leuba and your images are wonderful. Love the spore print! As a suggestion only, You may have a Flammulina sp. I have found this one growing on Tree-fern trunks on Mt Dromedary [Gulaga]

    Two small ( about 10 mm wide) bright yellow mushrooms growing on wood. Caps were smooth with darker centres. Stipes were yellow with small white fibrils and some mycelia at the base. Gills were white, adnexed. Spore print was a pale pinkish-brown. Growing on a decaying damp piece of eucalyptus wood. Not able to find an ID for this. Can anyone help, please ? Thanks.

    Teresa, thanks for your lovely comments. I try my best with the little pocket camera - about 2 shots out of 10 turn out OK -thank goodness for digital technology ! About the ID - I thought it was Flammulina at first but a few features bothered me - the stipe was not velvety, the colour was a limey yellow and I believe Flammulina has a white spore print, at least F.velutipes. If you know of any other Flammulina species, I will check it out. Thanks again for your interest & help.
