there is always a reason that some species just don’t fit neatly into our chosen categories!

newly described sp. cantharellicola is a case in point.

Same concept, different name.

We were discussing it as R. subnigricans on MushroomTalk in mid-November, but I think it is a great idea to be consistent with MykoWeb and Thiers for now and call it R. eccentrica for now. Made the change.

Why R. subnigricans instead of R. eccentrica?

All the references I’ve found(including the Thiers mongraph) indicate that the proper name should be Russula eccentrica… at least for the time being. http://www.mykoweb.com/CAF/species/Russula_eccentrica.html
