 Remarks:Hygrocybe (Fr.) P. Kumm. Is correct. Hygrocybe Fr. ex Rabenh. is INVALID according to Art. 36.1. Fries validated Hygrocybe as Hygrophorus subgenus Hygrocybe in (1849). Though Rabenhorst (1844) pre-dates this, he did not list Hygrocybe among the infrageneric names he accepted, which indicates he rejected them as synonyms of genus Agaricus, [unranked] Hygrophorus, [unranked] Hygrocybe (pers. com. Shaun Pennycook, 28 Oct. 2010 to Redhead). Kummer (1871) was thus the first to validly use Hygrocybe Fr. at genus rank. That makes Hygrocybe Fr. ex Rabenhorst. INVALID.
