Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!

Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.

No interactions present.

No 'cf. ' about it.

Subject to any future changes as a result of current DNA work, this is good, true Hygrocybe conica, not one of its satellite species.

Wildali, if you add a revision without the 'cf.' I'll be happy to add agreement.
