Notes: The gills on this were slightly decurrent, kind of thick, widely spaced and alternating lengths and the same color as the pileus and stipe. Found in mixed wood. I wasn’t entirely sure about this ID and being asked to add a new name has made me less sure!

…or did you mean something else, Nathan?
I had noticed before that we didn’t have any shots of C. pratensis. Interestingly the Index Fungorum says that Hygrophorus pratensis is currently the correct name. I had heard before from Dennis Desjardin that Camarophyllus was now considered a synonym for Hygrophorus. I’d be interested to hear other people’s opinions.
