that they needed to be separated from Hygrocybe.
The name of the genus would have been settled by now in MycoBank, if the nomenclatural rules had been clear and easy to follow. The delay just proves that they can be interpreted arbitrarily.

just shoot me.

Eventually this will be Cuphophyllus somethingoranotherensis

Cuphophyllus separate from Hygrocybe

Recent papers show that the wide take on Hygrocybe has to be reversed, and now these groups are recognized as separate genera again, such as Gliophorus, Humidicutis, and Cuphophyllus (for Camarophyllus).

Yep, Camarophyllus has been merged with Hygrocybe, but I wonder – does anyone know how many Camarophyllus have been officially transferred?

I wish we had more confidence-inspiring names for our western Camarophyllus-type Hygrocybe.

nor is it C. graveolens, the ‘pale C. pratensis’.

This is more slender, totally pale (nearly white) when young.

any more details on this?
