Mycena leaiana – Orange-gilled Bonnet

(Australian records are as Mycena leaiana var. australis)

On rotting wood in wet forests and woodlands. This bonnet is immediately identified by its orange gills edged with a deep orange glutinous thread. The cap is orange to orange-brown and the stem orange. However, as fruit-bodies cluster low down on fallen branches or logs, the gills are not always immediately visible.
