Hygrocybe miniata (NL: Gewoon vuurzwammetje / EN: Vermilion waxcap / DE: Mennigroter Saftling / FR: Hygrophore vermillon) is a small, bright red, or red-orange mushroom of the waxcap genus Hygrocybe. It is a cosmopolitan species. In Europe, it is found in fields, on sandy heaths, or grassy commons in the autumn. The specific epithet miniata comes from ‘miniat’, which means "painted with red lead".
