Observation 2062: Hygrocybe pratensis var. pallida (Cooke) Arnolds
When: 2007-01-20
No herbarium specimen

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!

We have lots of shots of Camarophyllus prateneis under the old name…

…or did you mean something else, Nathan?

According to Index fungorum…

…hygrocybe pratensis is the current name. Is there another source I should use to find current names? See http://www.indexfungorum.org/...

Looks correct to me, but perhaps it should be Hygrophorus pratensis…

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.
