Pulk, I greatly appreciate your citizen scientist’s efforts, but please, stay away from changing our observation names. If you see any problems, post it as a comment.
Also note, that we listed the name Agrocybe pediades as a possible synonym of A. semorbicularis (see the question mark).
If you use the Moser (as we are doing), he gave a clear difference between these two species (see page 291):
A. semiorbicularis cap greasy or sticky; spores 10-14 × 8-11 µm
A. pediades cap not greasy or sticky; spores 10-12 × 6.5(-7) µm
Check your collections of Agrocybe pediades, where a part of them might be A. semiorbicularis.
