>>Why O. subilludens?

Omphalotus subilludens is listed in James Kimbrough’s “Common Florida Mushrooms”. Like the photo in his book, all of the specimens that I’ve found have been distinctly scaly on the cap. I have seen many Omphalotus illudens (from up north) and they are generally smooth capped, and usually (not always) found on the stump/log host. I have only found O. subilludens on the ground near palm trees (strictly anecdotal) and never obviously on wood.
I’ve read what Ron Petersen wrote about them and I don’t disagree but — going on the field characteristics that I have observed — I feel better using the local name.
You are welcome to change it.
