we should change this name to Omphalina ericetorun?
Index Fungorum prefers Omphalina ericetorum instead of Lichenomphalia umbellifera (Esslinger’s preferred name). As this is a mushroom site(you mean Fungorum, right???), not a lichen site, it seems to make more sense to side with Index Fungorum where there is debate.
