Since I live in the southern hemisphere the are many species that are inadequately described.
Often they look similar to something from the northern hemisphere and have been given the same name but are not actually the same thing. This is very common with fungi but occurs widely.
Currently I give the northern hemisphere name in the hope that some time in the future taxonomic studies will produce a new name and the ID can be switched based on geography. Often I put an aff. in the description field but that’s pretty vague.
It would be nice to have a small tick box that indicates that I am of the opinion that this is not Galerina hypnorum (or whatever) but there is no other name available that makes sense.Just using the genus is not descriptive enough since the local variety has been understood as Galerina aff. hypnorum for a long time.
