Mycological science has been rapidly advancing due to DNA studies and advances in technology. As more taxonimists pursue studies of macro fungi I expect various genera and/or species to be reclassified. After all names have changed since C. von Linnaeus proposed the BSN. Thanks again. Phil

If I understand it correctly M. rigida aka M. californica may be grouped with M. americana and M. rigida will be the preferred name.
