This creamy Gliophorus is common in the Mangemangeroa Reserve but appears to be undescribed. The cap is viscous and creamy with a hint of tan-yellow, up to 2 cm diam. x 3-4 cm height. The gills are cream, attached and descending. The stipe is also cream in the top half and more yellow at the base, 3-4 mm. Amongst litter under large broadleaf trees in remnant mature coastal broadleaf forest.
The cap of this Entoloma looks more like a Pluteus with a covering of dark brown velvety squamules. Cap flat with a slight depression in centre, 2.5-3.5 cm diam. x 4-4.5 cm height. Gills creamy-pink, attached, gill margin concolorous. Stipe fibrous creamy brown (lighter than cap), fuzzy white at base, 3.5-4 mm diam. On bare bank soil in remnant mature coastal broadleaf forest.
Waxgill with purple cap with some yellow-green colour particularly in juvenile fruit body. Gills thick, waxy green-yellow with some purple near margin, attached with a small decurrent tooth. Mature fruit body flat with upturned margin while juvenile fruit body is broadly conical, 1.8- 3.5 cm diam x 5-8 cm height. Stipe green-yellow at the top, purple in the middle and bright orange in the bottom half, 7-8 mm diam. for mature specimen. On bare soil on bank in remnant mature coastal broadleaf forest.
Small Pluteus with a uniform brown cap, raised in centre and wrinkled. Gills free, cream turning pink, gill margin concolorous. Stipe creamy, glabrous. Fruit body 1.5 cm diam. x 2 cm height. On rotten fallen log in remnant mature coastal broadleaf forest.
Bright orange Hygrocybe with a dry cap, 3 cm diam. x 3.5 cm height. Gills creamy orange, attached and decurrent. Stipe paler than cap, 4 mm diam. Two distinctly different spores seen in both size and shape. On bare soil in remnant mature coastal broadleaf forest.
Dark brown Entoloma with tan-pink attached gills with a darker brown edge. Cap with a depression in centre, up to 3.8 cm diam. x 4-5 cm height. Stipe brown, lighter at base. On soil amongst litter in remnant mature coastal broadleaf forest.
Coral fungus, quite pink towards the tips with a creamy-beige base. Distinct base (about 5 mm thick) with multiple branching above this and finally branching into two's at the tips. Size quite variable with photographed clump about 4 x 4 cm. Large scattered group on soil in remnant mature coastal broadleaf forest.
Group of fungi with a velvety rusty-orange cap on very rotten disintegrating wood lying on soil. Cap distinctly wrinkled, darker in centre, 3 cm diam. x 4 cm height. Gills attached and creamy. Stipe smooth, pale orange, tapering at base and powdery at bottom of stipe. Remnant mature coastal broadleaf forest.
White club fungi with a garlic odour.
Colour is creamy-white with the apex discolouring with age to tan-yellow. Height of mature clubs 7-8 cm with a width of 4-5 mm, narrower at base (2 mm). Clubs often have a longitudinal ridge down the centre and the apex is mostly tapered (occasionally with a small division into two tips). Remnant mature coastal broadleaf forest.
A parasite - Hypomyces papulasporae on an earth tongue (see notes below)
Soft club shaped fruit body with a creamy powdery mass of presumably spores on the outer surface. Black at base and inner black, hollow. Height 5 cm. Club is 7 mm width at top and base 4 mm width. In a small scattered group of four amongst tree roots in soil. Remnant mature coastal broadleaf forest.
