We dipped them in light tempura and deep-fried. VERY good.

I enjoyed seeing this whatever its proper name is.

I agree

but we need consistency on MO as well. We either call it by the European name, a provisional name for NA species or the genus. Personally I think we should use a provisional name but we need a consensus. See discussion obs 147066.


Use the names we have

Let us use the names we have, until the time when someone puts in the work and creates valid American names. Refusing to distinguish a species easily determined by macroscopic features is simply laziness.
