Rickenella fibula (Orange Moss Agaric) is a small, orange mushroom found associated with moss. It is an introduced species to New Zealand. Ricknella is easily distinguished by its small orange cap, smaller than 1cm diameter, and its habitat. Rickenella fibula has a worldwide distribution.
These examples were observed in the Wither Hills Farm Park, at the beginning of winter.
