at work that I meant Melanoleuca. Thanks all!

Has to be a mistake

by Indexfungorum. I would have used the name Melanoleuca alboflavida anyway.

Yeah, I wondered about the apparent genus change.

I had meant to post Melanoleuca as “promising”, and M. alboflavida as “could be.” But MO said that M. alboflavida had depreciated in favor of C. alboflavida. Checked on Species Fungorum, and the current name for M. alboflavida is reported as Collybia alboflavida.

Collybia? Really? Seems like a clerical error.
