Is it a new species or variety?

With Contributions from:  Steve Ness, Eric Chandler, Renée Lebeuf, Jacques Landry, and Andrus Voitk

This Blog is based on 14 months of email discussions following the discovery in Washington State of a new North American record for a species tentatively identified as the European Hygrocybe phaeococcinea discovered by Jen Chandler and pursued by Eric Chandler and Steve Ness (members of the Puget Sound Hygrophoraceae Project) of the North American Mycoflora Project (NAMP).
