When you work on the name page, you should mark what the basionym of the Preferred Synonym and if possible, also what is the Type, the type location and if you have seen it. That’s usually done by an exclamation mark behind the Herbarium Code. When you waist your time on this activity, do it properly! Adolf
Also, you should update the counts. There are 26 MO observations of Cortinarius acutus and none of Agaricus acutus which is in fact the same fungus. This is important, because when people who would be looking for Agaricus acutus,would be confused and lost.

Why do you create also the Deprecated Synonyms?

It is quite a burden:

You have thousands names to add, if you want to clutter MO with all the names in Index/Species Fungorum. “Study nature, not books!” was the wisdom that Frederick Clements used to say. Adolf
P.S. We have already suggested (maybe in our private emails to Nathan, Joe et al.) that they should drop the Name Pages from MO and replace them with the recommendation that the MO users should follow the Index/Species Fungorum for posting their MO observations. O. & A.
