But I still think it is a different species. It is stouter than all pratensis I have ever seen and reminds more of a Hygrophorus which was why I was puzzled at first. Furthermore the stipe seems somewhat pruinose/farinaceous in some collections. Did not check the micros though.

is pale to vividly orangeish, this is white to creamy.
And very rare.
But the habitat is the same. I do not know if there is any DNA done on this by now.
