Except G. perplexus & western G. psittacinus there are no red or bright orange Gliophorus.

of H. munutula matches very well with this obs. I wonder if this species will eventually be moved to Gliophorus? Overall slippery/slimy coating seems like the defining trait for this genus.

G. perplexus looks like a good possibility, Martin.

I’m wondering how one distinguishes between G. perplexus and G. psittacinus. My understanding of G. psittacinus is that the cap color ranges considerably.
