Agaricus Vaporarius missing from species list

Trying to enter an observation for Agaricus Vaporarius via casual record (I am not a mycologist so this seems the obvious route). The species isn't found, so I can't enter the record. I can't find any evidence that this species has had its taxonomy changed. I realise it is not very common, but all the more reason to get it entered and hopefully picked up and verified, or at least recognised in surveys of that species that draw on iRecord.

hi Steve

hi Steve

The UKSI recognises Agaricus cappellianus as the preferred name.  A. vaporarius as a synonym.

Thanks

Thanks. Its years since I was in the British Mycology Society and it must be that my books are out of date, however none of my on-line searches revealed this renaming. I don't see a way to search synonyms in iRecord - that might be a handy feature.
