Caps of this bright orange mushroom were no more than 10 mm with a deep central depression. Younger fruiting bodies were almost hemispherical, flattening out as the mature. Caps showed some striation and margins were wavy.
Stipe was smooth and slightly paler than the cap. Could not get a shot of the gills. Possibly Rickenella fibula.
This species comes to the light readily however only once in the past has it landed on the sheet. Invariably it sits on the ground using the stones and leave litter as camouflage. This image was not posed but rather an opportunistic observation which portrays the similarity of the leaf to the moth wing shape, colour and markings.
A leathery, thick fruiting body with frilly greyish-white margins. The centre of the caps were dark, almost black and looked silky. The largest of these caps were about 50 mm wide.
Growing on damp sandy soil in a reserve of mixed natives. This is possibly Phellodon niger.
