zinziberatus is not colymbadinus in my opinion

One difference between the two is the more obvious scaly cap of zinziberatus (ss. meo), but that scalyness is restricted to the margin of the cap except in very young fruitbodies. I have to search for another foto of the same location from another year. But this is a dia and I can not scan this, I have to make a digital foto of it. Let’s see.

I’m not sure

I don’t really recognize this as our “colymbadinus”, but it seems to be a very variable species when it comes to shape and colour on the cap. The velvety fibrous structure on the cap margin is something I haven’t seen on them.
If it is fluorescent and becomes dark red with KOH, I can still imagine another alternative, like a form of venetus (if the gills are more greenish than yellowish brown) – could still be somebody’s interpretation of zinziberatus, I guess.

A trouble with that is that Fries placed zinziberatus in a section called Leucopodii, corts with white stems..
