And as for getting the taxonomy correct, don't worry about it too much.
Much of fungi taxonomy is a moving target. The most important thing is
to make sure that people will understand what you mean when you use a
name. Also don't correct a name unless you studied the group reasonably
recently. Of course even the old hands will occasionally make a typo
or use an old name.
BTW, Daniel, didn't you mean Armillaria ostoyae rather than Armillariella
