you never identify collections by voting on them. Just stay away of changing the names and if you have another suggestion, post it as a Comment. This voting business may work for postings without any supporting specimens, but for the MO observations supported by herbarium specimens this “Naming” game is ridiculous.
MO developers shot themselves in the foot when they devised Voting, Consensus and Deprecation. Stay away from this nonsense if you don’t want to look silly.

You say here that P. pouzarianus can not be recognized by sight, and I agree with that. However, you’ve downvoted my suggestions of P. sect. Pluteus on other observations lacking microscopy, I suspect out of spite. Please refer to Justo et al. (2014). There aren’t even any confirmed reports of P. pouzarianus from North America. The closest species in Western North America are P. orestes, P. primus and P. brunneidiscus.

cannot be recognized by sight. Do you see any clamps on these photos? Adolf
