deja vu.

this is another unpublished name, without a good description, other than a brief reference in the unpublished CA Mushrooms to its name as a “proposal” for an Agaricus similar to subrutilescens but “stockier, w/coarser cap scales and less flocculent lower stipe.” Who proposed it wasn’t mentioned, nor if DNA was run. Mushrooms can look different, even within a species.

We should probably kill this name here on MO. I mean, really.

If it is a Kerrigan name, then please, let’s wait ’til it and the rest get published. And I have to add, IF they get published. Who knows how this drama will pay out?

What would Else do???
