Hygrocybe miniata is a cosmopolitan species, having been recorded in most of the temperate zones. It has been collected from Britain, Europe, America.
In Britain it appears in autumn (fall), particularly in frost free periods, and prefers sandy heaths, grassy clearings, or unimproved fields.

In Australia, it can be found in temperate to subtropical rainforest and eucalypt forest.
