I keep saying that for years now …

applying american names on european mushrooms is a nuisance.
Like Hygrocybe acutoconica (which we probably don’t have in Europe either),
Hydnum albidum, which we think we know, but americans don’t, etc..

I know about this discrepancy and I prefer H. conicoides,

for this is what my find is. It is known from this location for ten years now. There are just a few others all around there in the Nationalpark Neusiedler See the only steppe lake in Central Europe. It grows together with Peziza ammophila.
I just checked the data base of Austrian fungi and it has been referred back to conicoides so I will use this name again. The only other observation of foliirubens here on M.O. is from Dimitri and I applied the same name to it. Will check now if this is the true foliirubens or also conicoides.
It is really a nuisance nowadays with all that name changing within even hours :)
And there is no end of it in the near future.

Murrill’s foliirubens

is a very very tiny species. 10-15 mm broad caps and slender stipes, 1-1.5 mm thick.

This looks much larger, and the habitat seems to be the right kind for conicoides. Did you check the spores?

Same location, same date: Obs 20192,20193..

H. foliirubens is the most recent name for H. conicoides. I also would prefer H. conicoides over foliirubens though.
