I’ll change my lists to have the correct spelling.

phyllus or philus?

Arora is simply wrong. There are many errors in that massive book, but none of them are fatal. It is still the best book for the west coast and his 732 descriptions are OUTSTANDING.

It gets pretty well maintained and peer reviewed.

Well, I’ve been keeping lists of species found, and I started the list with the info from Arora. And there it is — quercophyllus (2ed p. 206), and so it is in my species list. But I do see here and at Mykoweb it is listed as quercophilus. So, not sure what to go with here, and someone should explain to me why one is better than the other…

Typo in the name?

I think you intended M. quercophilus. I had some of these wrong from before, but it looks like Darvin had it right.
