“There can be only one validly published name.”
In that case there is no other choice, the original Agaricus sylvaticus the one that is recognized by Species Fungorum.

“I don’t believe Agaricus sylvaticus was conserved by Fries.”
The question is not what you believe, but the name that some entity recognized determines.

Only one

There can be only one validly published name. I don’t believe Agaricus sylvaticus was conserved by Fries. ‘Agaricus silvaticus Schaeff. apud L. Secretan, (1833) page 176 [basionym]’

OK! Good to know.

He have then two names: One going back to 1774 and other to 1887 that seem to coexist till now. Therefore, it makes no sense to deprecate one in favour of the other, especially if someone deprecate the original. I think that they can live as synonyms.

… of anyone arrange, by mistake, by chance or deliberately, its orthographic variant of any name. After all, to whom do you recognize the final word in terms of nomenclature? Can you indicate any scientific paper where the name A. silvaticus appear without mention to the orginal name?

Agaricus sylvaticus is an orthographic variant. Index Fungorum is not the final word when it comes to nomenclature nor are they always up to date with changes.
