This Wax Cap was seen in the Wombat forest near Cairns road in early June. It was quite small. The cap was about 15mm across and the stem about 20mm tall. It was among moss on the ground.
The colour of Hygrocybe cheelii can vary from the pale mauve specimen seen in the Wombat forest to purple, like the one I saw growing among grass on an oval.
I saw this Mauve Waxy Gills Hygrocybe lewellinae specimen in June 2010 in the Wombat forest. I have only ever seen this one specimen.
The Field Nats saw this species Lemon Wax Cap Hygrocybe chromolimonea on our fungi excursion to the Wombat forest in early June.
