Adolf, why do you think the nominative ‘media nox’ would make a better epithet? ‘Cortinarius ceska’ wouldn’t sound right, right?

I found Christian’s paper really nice; wish it had some visual microscopy too.

See Morgado et al 2013.
My paper does list collections examined:
This mushroom languished without a name for a decade or more, so the only utility I was concerned with was giving it one. Everything needed to recognize this mushroom is in the paper. No offense taken. MO posts can be wonderful!

Why does your paper have no phylogenetic tree despite referencing several sequences or even a list of collections examined?

I really don’t know how to say this without risking being rude, but your paper reads more like a MO post than a useful paper…

is not the correct spelling of E. medianocte – it is to be flagged as an orthographic variant, but in an incorrect Latin (if it were up to me, even that wouldn’t matter).

All names for fungi are imagined out of thin air. The familiarity with the organism and the effort put into distinguishing it with photos, and molecular data is another story. Don’t pretend that I found it distinct and named it on a whim.

Nomenclature vandalism?

You are mistaken. I am not mad at you, I might be mad at your behavior. For the correct spelling of your “Entoloma medianocte”, check
Dpn’t make a villain from me. I have to say that I greatly value your knowledge, and for that reason I might be more critical at you than at many other MO users. Adolf
P.S. I think that the Index Fungorum Publications should be put on the list of rejected publications in the Code, notwithstanding the fact that Cortinarius ceskae was also described there. You are not the only mycologist who came with the names dreamt out in the middle of the night. See some new genera within Mycena s.lat. published in Index Fungorum Publications. There is quite a lot of nomenclature vandalism in Index Fungorum Publications. Cheers! AC
