This MO Name is used to identify Observations which show multiple fungal taxa, unless it’s obvious from the context which single taxon is intended to be the subject of the Observation.
containing taxa which the observer (or any member for that matter) wants searchable via the “similar observations” option, the Mixed collection name can be proposed alongside one or more other names. For example, Observation 75013 has both Mixed collection and Cortinarius proposed, since the ob. is of an assortment of Cortinarius spp. collected on a foray. Mixed collection is given consensus, but the Cortinarius name proposal allows it to show up in a Similar Observations style-search.
a new Non-fungal-like name to denote observations of many fungi. admittedly, Fungi serves this purpose plenty well already, but this name is, for the moment, equally applied to observations which cannot be IDed beyond belonging to kingdom Fungi and things which may be quite identifiable but are lumped together with too many other spp. to merit making single name proposals for each and every one.
