was mistakenly under the impression

that such highly ornamented mycena with yellow pilei fell under the heading of M. alphitophora. I traced back that notion to Observation 82303, where the mis-association began. if I’m not mistaken, M. alphitophora is not described as essentially having no pigment anywhere, cap or otherwise, much like its cousins in the rest of section Sacchariferae.
