and irresistible. a whole cedar grove packed between a handful of gills.

the stipe color is not an artifact.

I chose this particular naming based on IF’s choice of current name. 30 minutes ago I’d have called it Camarophyllus as well.

Are we now using Hygrocybe? Is Camarophyllus going away? People change so quickly… Myko people are a fickle bunch.

Any notes on the odor? Is that is a artifact of the photo, but the bottom half of the stipe is pinkish. That is usually a sign of C. virgineus, which doesn’t have an odor.
