See the comments for the first id I had of these:


Oh, and also, to see the details of H. miniata you can see the observations of:


Where you can see that the cap is centrally flat or depressed, and as they dry there are yellow small scales, it isn’t smooth. But then again, these are real splitter type arguments… and this came from Largents monograph, and he’s a reall splitter. But I would agree with him, that I think these are different species.
