Hygrocybe affinis readii

The photo matches a species of Hygrocybe we have sequenced in the Smoky Mountains that is probably an un-named species that is related to Hygrocybe readii. It is always short, sometimes caespitose, has dusky tones in the red pileus and often has a strong smell of rotting garbage or garbage mixed with honey.
