Both Index Fungorum and MycoBank say: Pholiota highlandensis (Peck) A.H. Sm. & Hesler is an invalid name, citing the International Code of Nomenclature, Art. 41.3 (Melbourne), and that the current name is Pholiota highlandensis (Peck) Quadr. & Lunghini. MycoBank remarks: “combination validly proposed by Quadracchia & Lunghini 1990, Quaderni di Accademia Nazionale dei Lincei 264: 11 .” See Index Fungorum record 319983; MycoBank #319983
