I think it is self-evident that this observation does not have an image. Placing all imageless observations into that category with an “I’d call it that”, is not helpful. I agree the burden should be on the observer to prove their species determination. However, although H. conica sensu stricto. has not been found in NA according to recent DNA work, I think we can safely assume that this was a blackening species of Hygrocybe, i.e. Hygrocybe subsect. Hygrocybe.
