We need a better name for the darker mottled red guys from the coast than H. erubescens. Need to look up info on this name, and how common is it use in what distribution…

you are right Irene…

old habits die hard! I dug it out of the fridge and bit it(ugh); this is the mild flavored, darker red Hygroph, not erubescens.

Looks very dark for erubescens
