I don’t question your references but does this mean that the image on the Mykoweb is also wrong? The image there, which is the only image on the web at all, seems to have a yellow stipe. Please take a look.

I appreciate your feedback. Thank you.

Stem fits Hygrocybe singeri

Although the cap looks like Hygrocybe olivaceoniger, the photos show a stipe that’s yellow and appears slimy. Both cap and stipe fit Hygrocybe singeri. Hygrocybe olivaceoniger has a white stipe that ages grayish. Dr. Largent has a description in Volume V of the Agaricales of California.

I found this information at:
" Hygrocybe olivaceoniger is distinguished by a yellowish-green to olive, not red-orange colored fruiting body."
