I wouldn’t think using a single misapplied name is helpful either when we seem to be dealing with 2 or more species.

But I don’t think it is helpful to drop everything back down to sp. just because the European thing might be different. It should be changed to the new name when and if a new name becomes available, until then we are better off using this name as sensu auct. Ca.

Kind of silly

to vote “As if” on Bolbitius in that case…

Definitely Bolbitius reticulatus

In the sense of California authors. Whether or not it is the same as Bolbitius reticulatus sensu stricto is doubtful.

certainly needs more investigation, on both sides of the Atlantic..

I do not recognize this as reticulatus or aleuriatus. There are a lot more species out there…

Both are European names, I think B. reticulatus is preferred in Europe. It would be cool if you could save these, they would be worth working on.

reticulatus vs. aleuriatus…
