Notes on Taxonomy: [Edit]

A paper on the 2006 changes to the genus Chlorophyllum is available online. The paper includes a key to the genus.

Regarding the long standing debate between rachodes vs. rhacodes, the short story is that the original publication was Agaricus rachodes, but some subsequent authors have interpreted this has essentially a typo in the transliteration of the greek root for ‘shaggy’ which is rhaco- and so they argue rhacodes is the correct spelling.

For now this website treats the two names as synonyms (which everyone agrees with) but considers them both valid. It would be great if people with a strong opinion added notes to clearly express their position. However, I would ask that until there really is a clear consensus on the issue, please don’t deprecate either name.
