What great images. so useful having that sect cut out an placed upside down on the cap. This enables me to see the shape and colour of the gills as well as the stem (stipe). The gills appear to have a pinkish tinge whereas with Cortinarius you would be seeing a rusty/brown colour with maturing spores. This appears to be a maturing Plutesu cervinus, a species that is know to grow in decaying wood and woodchips. Neither this genus or species is on the species list, so well done in recording a new genus for the Budawang Coast Nature Map. I'll add the name and try and get details up as soon as I can.

This is a significant sighting as it appears to be the first time that not only this species but also this genus has been recorded on the Budawang Coast Nature Map. Well done!!
