i come across erroneous deprecations and synonymizations frequently. a consequence of anyone being able to change names at will.

MO is saying that G. schmidelii has been depreciated in favor of G. nanum. By what authority? Sunhede (1989) in “Geastraceae” says the opposite. Index Fungorum shows schmidelii as valid.

This from MycoBank: Geastrum schmidelii Vittad., Monogr. Lycoperd.: 13 (1842, as Geaster). Geastrum nanum Pers., J. Bot. (Morot) 2: 27 (1809, nom. illegit.).
