    Hi David - These lovely critters are in Pholiota genus, possibly P. aurivella, not sure.

    They are so beautiful - bright colour and shiny. Almost wanting to pick them. It would be wrong to deprive others to see them.
    I didn't provide you with enough features to pin down the specific species, but now I know which genus, and possibly P. aurivella. I appreciate your effort. Thank you.

    Beauty does not last forever. This was what they looked like two months later.
