Preferred Name is better than Preferred Synonym

I see that MO replaced the term Preferred Synonym with Preferred Name. Excellent! Now, we have the Deprecated Synonyms to deal with. What are they?
The majority of the so-called Deprecated Synonyms are just Synonyms. The real deprecated synonyms can be labelled as Misapplied Names or Typos.
In our Entoloma collections we follow the taxonomy and nomenclature Of Largent 1996: Largent, D. L. (1994). Entolomatoid fungi of the western United States and Alaska. Eureka, CA: Mad River Press. 516 p.
We would greatly appreciate if we could be consistent within our major groups.

Switching to the Entoloma s.l.

After looking at the Co-David et. al. paper, it appears there are two published opinions about how to treat the Entolomataceae. One is the view they support where essentially there are only two genera Entoloma and Clitopilus. The second is Largent’s view where there are a number of distinct genera including Nolanea, Leptonia, Alboleptonia etc. Unfortunately, the morphological features that Largent associates with these distinct genera do not create monophyletic groups according to the analysis presented by Co-David et. al. Given these two options, I feel compelled to follow the opinion expressed by Co-David et. al. However, I expect that the genus Entoloma will eventually be broken up and it may well be that the definition of some of these subgenera will be updated to reflect monophyletic groups.
