Authorship, I guess

This was from the old days when I thought that maybe it was interesting to post occurrences that didn’t have photos. Many sites do this, but it is certainly not the convention here.

Anyway the disagreement is with the authorship. My understanding is that the ‘: Fr.’ bit is always optional, so both of the proposed names are reasonable. The name I originally gave it was “Chlorophyllum molybdites (G. Mey.) Massee” which is now a deprecated synonym. I just deleted that naming and threw my weight against the other form.

And how come multiple people are voting IDs on something they can’t see?

The same fairy ring pumped out another set of buttons.
