The specialist in Phaeocollybia

is Dr. Lorelei Norvell, who named many of them. P. scatesiae was named to honor Catherine “Kit” Scates. P. sipei was named for Dr. Frank P. Sipe, who collected the holotype in 1937. P. redheadii was named for Scott Redhead. P. ammiratii was named for Joe Ammirati. Seems like many are not named for women to me…

i know nothing about Phaeocollybia…
