Well, not sure about different. I guess I would yes they are different in some ways, but no they aren’t different enough. Like in this case, when I see H. repandum in Cali, they are usually more random, showing indeterminate growth with embedded pine needles, and just barely faded orange colors (kinda pastel light orange). Here they seem more standard in shape and size, with a clear stipe and cap, and deep orange. So, different, but not that different really… You could probably separate them out of a mixed pile, but not sure they are enough to claim different species perhaps.

i see you are finding some of our typical CA winter coastal mycota in France…

do they seem any different to you, despite sharing the same names?
