I recently posted concerning the correct name for the cultivated mushroom
(Agaricus brunnescens or bisporus or campestris), and I find that I have
omitted an important discussion of this issue.  For those of you
interested in the debate, here it is:

R.W. Kerrigan. 1987. What's in a name?: The chaetaceous case of the
chaste champignon.  IN: P.J. Wuest, D.J. Royse & R.B. Beelman.
Cultivating Edible Fungi. Amsterdam: Elsevier.
