This is the news on this Megacollybia with marginate gills; Specimen at TENN. Ronald H. Petersen:

The DNA evidence is in on the marginate-gilled Megacollybia from the NAMA foray. The reason for the delay is that the organism is a hybrid, sequences from which had to be cloned for accuracy. Identity – M. subfurfuracea, described by RHP from Arkansas (2007) X unknown strain of M. subfurfuraceae with large deletion in ITS 1. (Thus, an INFRAspecific hybrid). The marginate condition, therefore, does not indicate species-rank uniqueness, but merely a morphological (always the results of physiology) variant heretofore unrecorded. Acknowledgment: Karen Hughes for the molecular work.

Nice thumbnail, John.

Why not? Just now I was watching a Japanese refering to a species very similar under the title Megacollybia clitocyboidea but it seemed just guesses … so when a species does not exist in a particular place that means that it never had been found before, right? … until the first time.

The name may be European, and the European stuff could be very well be different from what we have here but until then I think we are stuck with those names until more things get dna tested and names changed. There are huge amounts of fungi that were are using European names for here at least for now.
