by “more correct synonym”? What are the less correct ones? My twisted brain tells me that the “more correct synonym” is not a synonym.

When synonymizing Psathyrella gracilis (Pers. 1801 : Fr. 1821) Quel. 1872 and P. corrugis (Pers. 1797 : Fr. 1821) Konrad & Maubl. 1948, the latter takes priority as the oldest sanctioned name, even though the former has been widely used this century. The oldest non-sanctioned name is Agaricus diffusus Batsch 1786.
