Brief Description:

“Hygrocybe monteverdae in fact belongs to the genus Cuphophyllus but the combination in that genus was not yet proposed.

Hygrocybe monteverdae is somewhat similar to Cuphophyllus pratensis var. pallida (= C. berkeleyi), but well-characterized by a more slender habit, black discoloration on drying and larger spores. The species is restricted to Northwestern Europe and the Canary Islands, very rare and confined to special and threatened habitats: old, undisturbed deciduous forests and old, unimproved grasslands on base-rich, calcareous soils. In view of the very small population H. monteverdae is proposed for the global Red List as Endangered (D1)."
