And thanks for confirming my suspicion :-)

Yes! Thank you! H. atramentosus has been confirmed by the finder.

I would love to find H. atramentosus too!

The pics are a bit overexposed but not that much. This was found in a pristine spruce-beech-fir forest reservation. I can’t decide if it is calcareous or acidic because of the needle layer there. But overall I guess it is calcareous. I hadn’t had a closer look on this. A mycologist had ID’d it as camarophyllus. Would be very glad if it is atramentosus. If I do not forget I will mention that upon the next university visit.

these pictures caught my attention as something I don’t really recognize as H. camarophyllus. If they show true colours (with a slight bluish tint) – have you considered Hygrophorus atramentosus? I have never found it myself.

If it’s found on calcareous ground, it’s very likely atramentosus..
