No microscopy present, so why C. sphaerosporus?

In my opinion, without microscopic evidence showing globose spores there isn’t sufficient reason to call this C. sphaerosporus.

I think Walt was saying “no” to your original question:
“Can Consensus stay away from messing up with the MO Observation names?”

And that question (rather than “No what?”) is what has me confused. With your added explanation, I take it that your original question referred to the MO Name system, as opposed to which Name is the consensus for a particular observation.

I was not sure what Walt’s "no""meant

Did he question ID of this MO observation?
Did he question the taxonomy; Is it better to treat Cantharellus sphaerosporus as conspecific with Cantharellus tubaeformis?
Does he question the nomenclature? The name Cantharellus sphaerosporus is not valid and the name “Craterellus sphaerosporus (Peck)” is nonsense.
MO naming system put all these issues into one pot. This is why I asked, “No what?” Adolf

Not sure what you’re asking

For this Observation, the Observer’s (vjp) determination is C. tubaeformis. The Consensus agrees (even though both you and Herbert think that C. sphaerosporus is more likely). (Also there’s no herbarium specimen.)

So I’m confused about what you’re asking. (I’m not trying to start another food fight.)

Best regards,

Can Consensus stay away from messing up with the MO Observation names?
