    Sorry, Frog, here are some details, it grew on the ground in the earth if I remember correctly, with a diameter of 2 or 3 cm

    Hi @Ben Caledonia This could be Lichenomphalia chromacea. You could confirm by examining the ground immediately proximate to the fruiting body to see if there is a thallus composed of wee balls of algae (requires magnification). If you get a chance please post a photo of the soil surface?

    A big thank you Frog for your research and for this interesting lead. I don't think I will have the chance to see it again for a while unfortunately, and I don't have another photo.
