Hygrocybe marchii

Is there even a H. marchii on the west coast? GenBank has one listed from Kew, so one would think there is a European species but Boertmann does not have a separate species listed as H. marchii – which is a surprise as he has so many species listed from Europe. He list H. marchii in two places; saying on page 103 that is now “probably the same as H. reidii” and again on page 128 where he says it is now “small fruitbodies of H. coccinea”.

Do you have a characteristic that pushes this into H. marchii? Long stem to cap size?

Not sure exactly, but

that make this? Observation 296639

this was collected by an ESF student for the mycology class. No Mycoportal records of H. marchii in NY, but it has (or something called H. marchii) in nearby Quebec.

Yeah… marchii is a bit of a catch-all for me.
