Observation 188137: Hygrocybe miniata (Fr.) P. Kumm.

Many small bright orange mushrooms in an area about 6’ x6’. There were rotting hardwoods limbs, logs, pine straw and some moss. Not all of the mushrooms were near moss.

Both cap and gills were deep orange, slightly pink. The gills are moderately spaced with a short gill between out at the edge of the cap. The gills run down the stem but do not protrude below the cap when viewed from the side.

The base of the stipe is lighter right as it enters the soil. The stipe is rooted. There were no annulus or volva.

I am making a spore print.

Reference – Texas Mushrooms: A Handbook lists this as Hygrophorus miniatus. When I checked Hygrophorus miniatus in MycoBank it listed Hygrocybe miniata as Synonymous.
