You could be right but different sizes

of caps are normal occurrences in species. I have found many different specimens of the same fungi which were different sizes, some much larger than others.

Half an inch perplexus?

Thanks Tao; I wonder if I am comparing two different species here then? The one being a type of G. psittacina and the other being a much larger Gliophorus here in the PNW? Those that I am watching are consistently a bit over 5cm at full expansion.

Thanks for the Lodge paper link. Dr. Lodge has reviewed pictures of this mushroom in the PNW and she suggest it may be a larger western population.

Appreciate the comments.

I believe the caps were about a half inch wide or so at full expansion and yes I have found the Californian variation: http://mushroomobserver.org/122808?q=8ci
Gliophorus perplexus is just the new name of Hygrocybe psittacina/Gliophorus psittacinus.
