Not synonyms

Pholiotina rugosa is synonymous with Pholiotina filaris “sensu auct. pp”, but it doesn’t mean that they are the same, only that some experts thought that they were..

Although rugosa was originally described from North America by Peck, the Friesian filaris seems like a better match, because it’s a much smaller species (and without a rugose cap).

This is the same collection as obs 64846, isn’t it?

Why not Pholiotina rugosa?

I’ve noticed that Doug Smith has deprecated Conocybe filaris on MO in favor of Pholiotina rugosa. I’m trying to figuring out the basis for that. What I’ve been able to glean so far is here: http://mushroomobserver.org/name/show_name/303. Based on the spore measurements at least Pholiotina rugosa seems like the closer match (but I hate identifying anything using just spore measurements). What I’m wondering is on what basis you decided to call this Conocybe filaris, if you’ve considered Pholiotina rugosa, and if so whether you consider them synonymous or not.
