More fruitbodies needed. Probably punicea.

Single fruitbodies should not be taken too seriously in this
group. Every time I find one truly red fruitbody that makes me feel
that finally I have found H. coccinea, then I see it’s neighbors
being far more yellowish, ~punicea.

I agree with Irene that it is not impossible to be coccinea, but I’m
more inclined to see it as what as call punicea in California
(correctly or not). These ar every abundant in California late in the
season.

The gills are normally reddish, but with much paler edges – whitish to yellow.

Not H. coccinea

Not H. coccinea, the gills aren’t red. Everything is red in H. coccinea. This is one of the small red-to-orange guys, there are a few of these out there.
