When: 2007-01-20

Collection location: Howarth Park, Santa Rosa, California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Debbie Drechsler (debdrex)

No specimen available

Notes:
The gills on this were slightly decurrent, kind of thick, widely spaced and alternating lengths and the same color as the pileus and stipe. Found in mixed wood. I wasn’t entirely sure about this ID and being asked to add a new name has made me less sure!

…or did you mean something else, Nathan?

According to Index fungorum…

…hygrocybe pratensis is the current name. Is there another source I should use to find current names? See http://www.indexfungorum.org/...

Looks correct to me, but perhaps it should be Hygrophorus pratensis…

I had noticed before that we didn’t have any shots of C. pratensis. Interestingly the Index Fungorum says that Hygrophorus pratensis is currently the correct name. I had heard before from Dennis Desjardin that Camarophyllus was now considered a synonym for Hygrophorus. I’d be interested to hear other people’s opinions.
