Observation 55108: Hygrocybe lacmus (Schumach.) P.D. Orton & Watling
When: 2010-10-09
45.808506° -77.141581°
No herbarium specimen
0 Sequences

In Zone 06 (mature hardwoods — sugar maple, paper birch, and yellow birch — with a smattering of pine, fir, and cedar) where it’s appeared before.

Why is this classed as a Hygrocybe and not a Hygrophorus despite having the latter’s relatively large and robust nature with thick, waxy, decurrent gills?
