No specimen available

I think these are hygrocybes but can’t find any reference to anything that looks like them. The larger one is 3.5 cm across and 6 cm tall. The pilei were shiny and slightly sticky. Might’ve been slimy at one point? Gills were pale tan and stipe moist and also slightly sticky, though less so than the caps. I didn’t notice the red stain on the stipe until I was looking at the photos.

It looks like Hygrocybe fornicata, but I don’t know what you have in your area?
