Michael Kuo writes "Coltricia montagnei has had identity problems over the years, most of them not related to taxonomic issues typical of many other mushrooms. Earlier guides indicated that specimens with pores were not the same mushroom as those with “gills.” The latter were called “Coltricia montagnei var. greenei, Coltricia greenei, or Cyclomyces greenei. These can all be considered synonyms for what is now simply accepted as Coltricia montagnei.”
