sensu auct. amer. vs nom. prov.

Amanita rubescens sensu auct. amer. is an umbrella term for all north american taxons that where once believed to be the european species A. rubescens. It means in the sense of north american authors.

A. amerirubescens nom. prov. is a provisional name for a specific species named by Rod Tulloss. Most likely this observation is A. amerirubescens but new dna is coming in all the time and the picture is changing with a number of amanita species. Once the name is officially published, reviewed and accepted, the “nom. prov.” will drop off the title.

A. rubescens sensu auct. amer. is a broader term that better reflects the current state of affairs. But, it certainly could be, and I think it is most likely that this observation is A. amerirubescens nom. prov.

Perhaps the two names should be suggested for these types of observations.

Best wishes.

Is there a difference between

A. rubescens sensu auct. amer. and A. amerirubescens (excluding the alba variant)? If not, is there a preferred name for now (I know that Rod Tulloss is currently studying the rubescent taxa of the eastern US)? If so, what is the difference?
