Notes on Taxonomy: [Edit]

According to Index Fungorum L. naucinus has not been deprecated in favor of L. leucothites. Only Lepiota naucina var. leucothites has been so synonymized. I don’t know the technical details of what the differences are supposed to be between these two species. These species are synonymized in Swiss 4 with L. leucothites taking precedence. For now I am leaving them synonymized, but with both names considered valid.

Is the Authorship and Citation confused for this MO name:
Leucoagaricus leucothites (Vittad.) M.M. Moser ex Bon, Ukr. bot. Zh. 34(3): 308 (1977)?

As of today, Index Fungorum has just one entry for Leucoagaricus leucothites, Index Fungorum record 355733, with

  • Authors: (Vittad.) Wasser
  • Citation: Ukr. bot. Zh 34(3): 308 (1977)

Mycobank does have an entry for Leucoagaricus leucothites with authors (Vittad.) M.M. Moser ex Bon, : but that entry shows:

  • Citation: Docums Mycol., 7(nos 27-28), 21, 1977
  • Name Status: “Uncertain”
  • Current Name: Leucoagaricus leucothites (Vittad.) Wasser

Perhaps this MO Name should be merged with Leucoagaricus leucothites (Vittad.) Wasser?
