The name came from Way Caps Mushrooms of Eastern north America by Bessette/Roody/Sturgeon. Page 35. The even have a citation of A.H. Smith and Hesler / comb.nov.
This book was just published, I looked up Hygrocybe marginata var olivacea in the Species Fungorum ( ) and sure enough it is not to be found in there but Humidicutis marginata var. olivacea is indeed in there with the same citations as what is listed as Hygrocybe marginata var. olivacea. so with that info i feel comftable changing the name. thanks all

weird is happening here. Why is this creating 2 comments? (I pressed enter for mistake and after that pressed on “create”. It should create only one.

Thank you Noah :)

Hygrocybe marginata… is deprecated, so it should be Humidicutis marginata…, wouldn’t be that?
