“Phylogenetic information, morphological observations and a few sexual compatibility pairings all suggest that the eastern North American representative of Megacollybia differs significantly from European M. platyphylla. Although two poorly differentiated forms seem to occur (here named), only a single species is accepted at this time. The species epithet intends to recognize James Rodman, long a Program Coordinator in the Biological Sciences Program of the National Science Foundation (USA), in appreciation of his service to biological systematics.”
