      Arthur I have not yet confirmed this but I have been advised that this is now Cruentomycena viscidocruenta (formerly known as Mycena viscidocruenta). Check it out. Let me know if the advice I have received is incorrect.

      The Atlas of Living Australia which maintains through the Victorian Herbarium the official checklist of Australian Fungi, still has it as Mycena viscidocruenta. I recomend following them as they will reflect any changes.

      Fungi Map - from the Royal Botanic Gardens, Melbourne is also using Mycena viscidocruenta.

      Thanks for that tip re the Atlas of Living. Is that list accessible online. Yes I think that is the best way to go at this stage.
      I was informed that the genus Cruentomycena viscidocruenta has recently been erected with C. viscidocruenta as its only species but I have not been able to confirm that.

      Looks like the change is being accepted elsewhere, but until it is accepted by the Australian taxonomists I would stick with Mycena. Otherwise contact the people at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Melbourne. I am sure the databases will be updated eventually.

      Thanks Arthur. For now I will have a bob each way. I will check it out but I have had some other Flickrites tell me now that the new name is winning acceptance. We will see what develops.
