I posted one from the northeast (Ob 12605) it’s a little browner then these, but I think it’s the same.

What I have learned, is that Hygrocybe unguinosa and irrigata is the same species, and the currently used name is Hygrocybe irrigata.

Hygrocybe unquinosus is very similar (almost identical) with a dark cap.
