Hygrocybe or Humidicutis

I am a little reluctant to call this Humidicutis luteovirens due to the lack of orange in the stipe. On the other hand I am well aware of how variable the colour of our waxgills can be. Its unfortunately many of our native species were named from only one collection thus not representing the true colour range very well.

I guess I would do the microscope work and get this into the correct genus before working out what species. The spore shape would probably even make this redundant as the are quite diffrent.
