Little red orange waxcaps

are macroscopically very difficult for me. According to Index Fungorum, Hygrocybe lepida is deprecated for H. cantharellus. If that is accurate the gill attachment would indicate that this is something else.

Hmm, back then I was pretty sure about H.lepida.

Dunno know. H.substrangulata I have found a few times but the last few years I am not distinguishing between H. miniata, mollis, substrangulata anymore. Maybe it is not correct but in Hygrocybe spores alone are not distinguishing for me – they all look the same and intermediary widths/lengths are occurring.

But why not miniata?

finely squamulose cap, the right kind of gill attachment, looks small enough.
Another similar species known from the alps, is substrangulata (with larger spores).

I do not believe my find is H.miniata.

It was scaly on the cap, growing in almost 2000 m above sea level near Alnus alnobetulae with Lactarius alpinus. There are certain other differences but I would have to look it up it is some time ago. What makes you think it is H. miniata?
