What exactly is going to be gained by filling our name pages here with other private databases’ inaccuracies?

I don’t see how any user of MO needs awareness that MB and IF list the preferred synonym of Stropharia coronilla as Psilocybe coronilla on November 15, 2018.

This is not directed at anyone in particular: The amount of synonyms and yet-to-be-updated names of fungi needs to be dealt with. My notes are intended to nudge forward some progress using citation, peer review, and collaboration (teamwork). My notes do not require immediate attention. They instead need attention at some point in the near future.

What are you trying to accomplish here? This looks to me to be MycoBank and IndexFungorum’s problem.

A. The current name on MB and IF is wrong. Both sites have Psilocybe coronilla as the taxon. MO in this instance is correct.


B. All non-bluing or negative-for Psilocybin/Psilocin species that were in the genus Psilocybe have been moved out of Psilocybe. Many went into Deconica, and others elsewhere.

C. Please see page 45 at:

D. I want to have teamwork and peer review included for certain name changes. Everyone will benefit by having multiple eyes on name changes. Lastly, I do not feel the same person who changes the names on MO should also be the person changing names on MB and IF. Or at least, there should be some type of peer review and a different person from the MO editor who makes the change to MB/IF.

“Still in Psilocybe”?

1. Do you mean “Still in Stropharia”?
And, if so, why is it still there?

2. If it’s still in Psilocybe, then please fix the Name. That’s much better than leaving a cryptic Comment.

3. When leaving Comments, please use a more informative Summary, e.g., “Current name still in Stropharia”. (Using “Current Name” simply adds noise to everyone’s activity feed.
