Per Josh Birkebak’s comment and to further discourage people from proposing this Name for Mycena crocea (Mycena luteopallens sensu A.H. Sm.). Cf. Pulk’s comment.

Is this Hygrocybe one that anyone actually ever identifies? That’s the only reason this name should be approved on MO. Otherwise, it’s just going to keep being misapplied by people who should be using Mycena crocea.

The (assumed) fact that the species of the type hasn’t been identified doesn’t mean the name is good; there are tons of solidly obsolete/deprecated genera (not just species) whose types haven’t been actually synonymized with a species.
