Not sure about the species? Seen on the banksia walk at Burrewarra Pt after heavy rain.

You are spot on. The colour is a bit washed out as you've mentioned with the heavy rain this is to be expected.

Did you realise that the Aseroe rubra was the first fungus to be described from Australia? That specimen was collected in Tasmania.
