Author's notes

Cap about 10mm across, the older one with upturned margin and central umbo. Colour greenish blue. I don't think it stained on breaking, but the flesh just is that colour (but it was very dark in there, so hard to be sure). Stipe slender and bright yellow except at the lower end where white. Growing in soil in rainforest.

Another one of those beautiful Hygrocybe species, possibly something like Gliophorus psittacinus, the Parrot waxcap, which we found a few weeks ago here, very difficult to ID without micro examination, so much so that we actually sent ours away for examination as it was so unusual and unexpected. So terrific to see that you have found something similar.

Googled that species and all the images show it as being very slimy, which this thing wasn't. I probably should have checked the gill colour on one of the younger fruiting bodies too. Oh well, maybe next time.
