Spelling mistake.

If you type in the name slowly, and check, the browser should suggest the correct spelling, so you can check if you are spelling the name correctly. Also Nathan has gone a bit nuts putting in names, and there are something like 6,000 names in here, if it asks that a new name needs to be created, you probably have spelled it wrong. (Although I put in a new name the other day… You’ve probably put in lots with the hypogeous stuff, but for the agarics, really most of the names are in here already…)

After saying that, I can’t remember the details on this one, but thought it had mostly a smooth cap, and this one looks like the cap is a little fuzzy?
