butyracea is OK

Yes, there is butyracea with brownish red cap and stem, and there is asema with a greyish cap and stem, and these that have colours in between, have always meant trouble to me.
Now, asema is considered merely a variety of butyracea (that makes it easier to call them all butyracea :-)

Rhodocollybia si; butyracea no.

butryacea has reddish tones to the cap. perhaps Irene knows this one?
