Black staining on caps…

favors Hygrocybe. I would propose “H. conica”, except the caps in this obs don’t appear to have the correct shape. I believe there are a few other red hygrocybes that stain black.

Can’t remember on this one Patrick.

Were the gills yellow, with orange lower edges?

Were they growing from the ground, or from buried wood?
