Thanks for the info, Martin! As well as the inspiration to look for more than edibles. :)

Current Index Fungorum name is Entoloma velutinum as of 1967. Leptonia velutina is a name proposed by Largent in 1977.

MycoBank says the names are synonymous.

Champignons du Québec apparently agrees but I have trouble connecting with them this morning. This site also carried a name Largent proposed for a pink entoloma I posted in 2013, which at the time, did not seem to be supported elsewhere.

Beautiful mushroom whatever we call it! I like Leptonia, and this name carries more information to most mycologists than Entoloma alone.
