Viscid red-orange waxgill. Cap dark red-orange when young becoming deep orange when older, up to 3.5 cm in diameter x 3.5 cm height. Gills attached, orange with a paler yellow edge, creamy-yellow-orange in young fruit bodies. Stipe orange and hollow, 8 mm diameter. In young fruit bodies the stipe is red-orange at top and paler at base. On soil in remnant mature coastal broadleaf forest.
Viscid red-orange waxgill. The cap is dark red-orange when young becoming deep orange when older and may have a paler yellow-orange margin. Growing up to 2.6 cm in diameter and 2.6 cm in height. This species does not appear noticeably striate in dryer conditions but can appear striate around the margin after rain. Gills attached with a very slight decurrent tooth, orange with a paler creamy edge in young fruit bodies. Stipe orange and paler at the base in young fruit bodies. On soil in remnant mature coastal broadleaf forest.
Viscid orange waxcap which was paler yellow in the centre. The gills were orange with a gelatinous edge, attached and slightly decurrent. The cap had an inturned margin and the fruit body was 2.7 cm in diameter and 2 cm in height. The stipe was darker yellow near the apex and paler towards the bottom with a tapering base. On soil in remnant mature coastal broadleaf forest.
(7255) coral fungi Clavariaceae, about 70mm high bright orange ,another one of the colors which is hard to get "right" with flash photography,with a expodisc or not
Uncommon. Colonial. Emerging from sparsely vegetated clay banks under rawiri (Kunzea linearis) / kahikatoa (Leptospermum aff. scoparium (a)) forest. Often found in dense drifts of rawiri / kahikatoa leaf litter. Associated with http://naturewatch.org.nz/observations/3740349
Thallus minute, 10 mm or less tall, pinkish-white to white, somewhat sticky to touch, gelatinous. Pileus weakly concave (slightly dish-shaped), sticky, white to pinkish-white (especially centrally), gills pale pinkish-white to white. Stipe gracile, pinkish white, often twisted..

Thallus minute, 10 mm or less tall, pinkish to pinkish grey, gelatinous, exuding 'glue-like' viscum when touched. Pileus weakly domed, very sticky, gills pinkish. Stipe greenish at base otherwise bluish-grey toward apex.
This species has an apricot coloured cap with pale apricot decurrent gills and a pale creamy apricot stipe. Fruit bodies were observed growing up to 3.5 cm in diameter and 4 cm in height. Growing on soil in remnant mature coastal broadleaf forest.
On lawn but presumably at site of removed tree stump. Same fungus (with typical exudate) also seen at base of other trees and observed during different times of year - never seemed to develop pores or other structures.
My first jelly baby. Very hard to stop being so dark against the debris. And smaller than I had imagined.
Found under manuka srub and silver ferns / mamaku's
I think I go this right...
Locally common. terrstrial, growing amongst Leucobryum javanicum, Dicranoloma, Fissidens asplenioides, Hypnum cupressiforme under Kunzea linearis / Leptospermum aff. scoparium (a) forest. Fruiting thallus 20 mm long, pileus 20 mm diameter, unevenly circular, upper surface smooth, greenish-white to yellowish-white, underside covered in minute teeth.
Locally common in gumland scrub (mostly Kunzea linearis / Leptospermum aff. scoparium (a) with Dracophyllum sinclairii and a dense ground cover of Gleichenia dicarpa). Fruiting body 80-90 mm long. Pileus blue-green, distinctly darker blue toward base more greenish toward apex, somewhat mucilaginous; gills pink. Stipe white.
Uncommon. Occasional specimens seen emergent from near the roots of rawiri (Kunzea linearis). Fruiting body 30 mm tall, pileus cinnamon, weakly domed, rugose (not sticky), distinctly ribbed near margins; gills orange; stipe red-brown.
I hope I got this right...
One pretty munted specimen growing at base of rawiri (Kunzea linearis)
Mostly present as 'egg'-like immature specimens emerging from bark mulch laid out in gardens - one 'flattened' (by human foot) mature specimen seen
Common. Lignicolous on partially decorticated mahoe (Melicytus ramiflorus subsp. ramiflorus).
Several specimens seen, largest in photograph. Approximately 10-15 x 10-15 cm from memory and comparing Tradescantia leaves shown in photo.
