The disparity of interpretation is also here:


But I have not seen anything that red over east;

I wonder if they have differences in microscopic features as well.

Looks like a new species name could be on the way.

Interesting to see this interpretation of Hygrocybe cantharellus our local ones are small delicat, bright red, with yellow decurent gills.
similar to the observation here http://mushroomobserver.org/obs/53149?q=AoQh
