Vermilion Waxcap

Hygrocybe miniata


The dry, scurfy cap, typically 1 to 3cm in diameter, is at first convex and then flattens sometimes with a slight depression; initially scarlet or blood red; with age the cap fades from the margin inwards to orange and then to yellowish, also becoming smoother. The cap flesh is thin and reddish-orange.
