ID by Colin.
Colin says this name has changed, grows on the bases of dead tussock grasses.
No stain, fibrillose stem, no notable smell. Was thinking it might be Lepiota magnispora, but now that I'm looking at pics that doesn't seem right.
Looked like it was growing out of the remains of aralia, but probably just growing from fallen wood.
Oak and bay, no stain, fibrilose stem
