User's notes

We have had about a dozen of these P.rubicundus pop up beneath the volunteer black wattle trees near the road. The sticky slimy band that develops under the white cap in a fresh emergent becomes covered in blow-fly/greenbottle type flies. The next day, the fungus shrivels and turns downwards.
