Observation 16433: Hygrocybe virescens (Hesler & A.H. Sm.) Montoya & Bandala
When: 2009-01-19

Notes: Many of these were larger than what is described in the literature. The caps were up to 6.7 cm broad and the stipes were up to 12.5 cm long. Coincidently, this rather rare species also showed up at the SOMA Camp yesterday, found by Nathan Wilson but I don’t know from what location.

Compare H. virescens with H. citrinovirens

I have found H. virescens under redwood in Seward Park in Seattle. It is very similar to H. citrinovirens (see David Boertmann’s northern Europe Hygrocybe book for a good description of the latter) and critical comparative studies need to be done on these two taxa. Given the restricted range of redwood habitat (at least natural habitat), it could well be that H. virescens is distinct.
