Hygrocybe section Chlorophanae

I don’t know how to distinguish the species in this section (H. chlorophana, flavescens, and maybe glutinipes) yet.

I re-approved “Hygrocybe flavescens group” because there are similar looking yellow Hygrocybe species that aren’t in that section (e.g. H. ceracea)

Chlorophanae vrs. flavescnes

Is there a particular reasons you placed this in H. sect Chlorophanae rather than H. flavescens? I’m not second guessing you at all just trying to learn from your expertise. In fact I agree with your choice here and am just wondering what the latest thinking is as to if there is one species here (flavescens and chlorophanae) or two.
