still pending. For now I am going with the Peck name of a North American species. H. tessulatus is a European name used for a smaller brownish mushroom which is commonly cultivated in Asia

IDed at NEMF by local mycologists, not me.

however, photo matches seem better to your new name. I have no real opinion on this.

thanks for the update, Walt.
