Leratiomyces percevalii vs Stropharia riparia

Jacob:
The Kuo discussion you cite is longest I can find. Unfortunately I don’t have access to the Noordeloos book.
So for now, Leratiomyces percevalii remains the MO consensus for this Observation. But I also suggested Stropharia riparia in case the taxonomy changes.

Michael Kuo discusses it a bit more and would like to call it L.p.
