M. corticola is a nomen dubium

However, M. meliigena isn’t the only species that has gone under Mycena corticola sensu [author]. M. corticalis, M. pseudocorticola and M. supina are also likely misidentified as M. corticola here as well, so I think it would be best to have it deprecated to the section all of these species are in.
