My concept of C. ignicolor is that the fertile surface is usually colored a bit differently than the rest of the mushroom, often slightly lilac or pinkish tinged. I think the mono-color in this specimen favors C. minor.

is orange or yellow orange, not yellow. You saw the fresh mushroom but this photo is a dead ringer for C.minor.
