According to Index Fungorm Flammulaster muricatus is correct latin. However, the species was published by Watling as Flammulaster muricata. The two names definitely refer to the same taxon, the vast majority of Flammulasters have a masculine species name and Flammulaster muricata loses the ‘Google Test’, so I am deprecating it.
