as for the name, MycoBank has them listed as synonyms without one or the other in the lead. This is the name I’ve always known this gill-less Marasmius by, and if I remember correctly, the one that Dr. Desjardin prefers as well. I could be wrong. Next time I see him I’ll ask.

Great picture of a neat mushroom. Index Fungorum has it as a Trogia.
