1…, 1789 and … are Hygrocybe spp.

If you need correct identity of the species, as I said earlier, herbarium specimens along with all relevant morphological data are highly essential.

This species level diagnosis is based on what botanical scientific authority: or which expert named this mushroom? do we have  a reference or quote from that person or a paper?
