Recognized by sight: The species concept of Agaricus (Panaeolus) cinctulus is based on a drawing made by Bolton in 1791. No type collection exists. Since it is not possible to know whether Bolton’s species was Panaeolus subbalteatus, P. olivaceus or P. fimicola, I consider Panaeolus cinctulus to be a nomen dubium.
Based on microscopic features: The gill faces need to be checked for sulphidia; the presence of these would indicate that it is probably Panaeolus fimicola.

Are you saying that Panaeolus cinctulus is nomen ambiguum and we are going back to subbalteatus! Gets confusing lol. Are you gonna deposit a new type collection for Panaeolus subbalteatus. What does it take to update the name? who puts out the memo?
