Recognized by sight: the blue-green color morph of G. psittacinus. How did these get so saturated in such a dry dry year???

still considered to be the same sp. as G. psittacinus? DNA determined?

If so, they are Gliophorus, not Hygrocybes. The variety merely refers to the color morph.

Psittacinus is not a Hygrocybe anymore. See Jean Lodge’s lovely synoptic key to the Hygrophoroid clade for more name changes: goodbye Camarophyllus (sob), hello Cuphophyllus!

We can kick and scream (and do) but it is what it is. Time to reprogram our brains. Again. Sigh.
