is deprecated because it is not phylogenetically supported.
It would be nice to have unranked ‘fake’ names to keep track of all the white-spored Agaricaceae, but I’m not sure the best way to do that.

The following is offered to provide additional information which may be relevant to identification. The measurements of the larger individual were: cap diameter ~18mm; stipe diameter ~2mm, length above leaf litter ~40mm. There was no evidence of an annulus. Gills were white. Both individuals had dissolved into an off-white goo within 24 hours of being seen.

it’s certainly one of the Lepiotas…

why is Lepiotaceae deprecated? Agaricaceae is waaaaay too general for this pretty obvious group, IMO.

Would searches for lepiotaceus fungi pull up this one, with the words “lepiota” just in the description rather than as a name proposal?
