it was a Hygrophorus (and before that a Tricholoma!) and then a “Hydrocybe”, probably a typo in that particular paper. I note the same name is in the MO system, deprecated.

They sure do love splitting genera up on the basis of single, obscure micro features like absence of clamp connections, without bothering to see if there’s really a phylogenetic justification for the split, though, don’t they? All the field guides I’ve seen still list most or all of these as Hygrophorus.

it never was a Hygrocybe

I wonder why this was split out of Hygrocybe?
