Camarophyllus vs. Cuphophyllus is another issue…

that was recently discussed here. It is more of a nomenclature issue, not a taxonomical issue.

Hey, I’d rather still call ’em Camarophyllus, but I always appreciate your helpful suggestions.

by whom?

This is no more a Hygrocybe then Lichenomphalia, Chrysomphalina, Chromosera, Gliophorus, Humidicutis, Dictyonema!!, etc, etc, are.

Either call them ALL Hygrophorus or learn and accept the new (old) names…
