Unknown small blue capUnknown ref 10041301 On wood, in clay soil, in alpine forest, near Carey's Peak NSW, in cluster of about ten, but growing separately. Decurrent gills, lateral stem and central depression on cap. These minute fungi - the biggest caps were about 5mm across - looked like the small leaves of a blue plant. Flesh very fragile, thin and transparent, spores white, and copiously on the ground. Stipe cap and gills all pale navy blue. Spores **may** look like tiny three pointed tacks (spore print of picked specimens was questionable). Stipe about 2-3mm long about 1mm wide. Picture ref: 1685 Gallery ref: 38
