Melanoleuca melaleuca – bald knight

Synonyms: Agaricus melaleucus, Boletopsis melaleuca, Gyrophila melaleuca, Melanoleuca graminicola, Tricholoma melaleucum.

Common name: bald knight.

Extract from Wikipedia article: Melanoleuca melaleuca is a species of mushroom in the Tricholomataceae family, and it is the type species of its genus Melanoleuca. It is difficult to distinguish from other related species firstly because it is variable, secondly because the taxonomic criteria are often based on characteristics which have later been found to be variable, and thirdly because there is much disagreement between authorities as to exactly how the species should be defined.

Estonian: Harilik kühmik, Finnish: Nokisataheltta, Polish: Ciemnobiałka ciemna, Swedish: Mörkmusseron, Ukrainian: Меланоливка коротконога.
