Go to the UBC and look at the supporting herbarium specimen UBC F26055.
Better yet, have the DNA of that specimen sequenced. Playing with the names is OK for Mushroom Observer, but not for the real mycology.
We would greatly appreciate if you could make your ID or name suggestions as Comments, not by changing the names without looking at the supporting herbarium collection. Try not to get stuck in the Citizen Science realm where the Mushroom Observer belongs thank to its wholly trinity: Deprecation, Voting and Consensus. Shake off your amateur habits! Aolf
