about these before..
I understand the idea to use “punicea” provisionally for an american unnamed species, but the problem is that so many pictures from MO show up when people are googling for it, that it spreads wrong ideas about what punicea shoud look like.

Not H. punicea

Hygrocybe punicea is impossible, because it has a dry cap and stipe, which both are obviousely fibrillous. Moreover, H. punicea is one of the biggest Hygrocybe and much bigger than those of the foto. And last the cap colour of H. punicea is a brownish-red never bright orangered.
