Name: Leucoagaricus leucothites
Author: (Vittad.) M.M. Moser ex Bon
Citation: Ukr. bot. Zh. 34(3): 308 (1977)
Preferred Synonyms:Leucoagaricus leucothites (Vittad.) Wasser
Misspellings: Leucoagaricus naucina
According to Index Fungorum L. naucinus has not been deprecated in favor of L. leucothites. Only Lepiota naucina var. leucothites has been so synonymized. I don’t know the technical details of what the differences are supposed to be between these two species. These species are synonymized in Swiss 4 with L. leucothites taking precedence. For now I am leaving them synonymized, but with both names considered valid.
Looking for input regarding Joe’s comments below.
Is the Authorship and Citation confused for this MO name:
Leucoagaricus leucothites (Vittad.) M.M. Moser ex Bon, Ukr. bot. Zh. 34(3): 308 (1977)?

Perhaps this MO Name should be merged with Leucoagaricus leucothites (Vittad.) Wasser?
