Fungus fair nomenclature review

The science advisors of the Fungus Federation of Santa Cruz, Gregg
Ferguson and myself, are currently reviewing our use of taxonomic
nomenclature in preparation for our up coming Fungus Fair the weekend
of Jan 8 & 9.  I have included in this note a list of changes
currently under consideration, and the complete list of names used for
the species identified at the last fair.  We are actively seeking
advice on the appropriateness of the proposed changes as well as any
other changes that we should consider.  Personal opinions or
preferences are welcome, though we would appreciate any references you
can provide.

We would also like to start using author citations with our species
names.  Our principal reference is Arora's "Mushrooms Demystified"
which is sadly lacking in this information making this transition
difficult.  The current plan is to consult other reference books that
include this information and if the descriptions appear match those in
Arora, to adopt the author citation used.  I would also find a
detailed description of the meaning of such citations helpful.  For
example, from Miller's "Mushrooms of North America" what does '(Pers.
ex Fr.) Kummer' mean versus say 'Vitt. ex Fr.' or '(Fr.) Karst'?  I
understand that Fr. = Fries, Pers. = Persoon, and Vitt. = Vittadini,
but what are the parentheses and 'ex' (presumably latin for 'from')
all about?  Any advice on how to go about correctly using or finding
this information would be of help.

Thanks in advance,
