On the other hand, if we are changing commonly encountered mushroom names to reflect changing nomenclature and taxonomy and their true ranges, shouldn’t Mr. Siegel, born and bred in MA, really be Amanita bisporigera? After all, virosa is a European name for one of their Destroying Angels.

We ain’t got no stinkin’ virosa, here.

Just saying.
