That only specific “varieties” of A. dura are synonymous with A. molesta. Can anyone clarify what’s going on with this taxon?

A. dura vs. A. molesta

From FAN6:

“In contrast to Singer (in Sydowia 30: 197. [‘1977’] 1978) and in accordance with Watling (in Br. Fung. Fl. 3: 18. 1982) Agrocybe molesta and A. dura are here considered synonymous. The correct name is Agrocybe dura. Bolton’s plate of A. dura seems to represent what is nowadays in Europe known under that name, though one specimen on this plate is slightly aberrant.”

if i’m not mistaken Agrocybe dura is the appropriate name…
not A. molesta.
