A key to Hygrocybe…

There is key to Hygrocybe here: http://www.aber.ac.uk/waxcap/what/key-main.shtml although the emphasis is on species found in Wales!

Any other species in the same group?

I wonder if there are any other “suspects” in the same genus (or related ones like Hygrophorus). While I read that H.psittacina can be orange, I couldn’t find any photos of the same color as mine – most of them have prominent greenish hue (just as they’re supposed to). And it’s also said the orangish color only comes through when the specimen are older, while mine is obviously a young one.
