When: 2010-10-09

Collection location: Forest near Elgin St., Pembroke, Ontario, Canada [Click for map]

45.808506° -77.141581°

Who: Paul Derbyshire (Twizzler)

No specimen available

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?
