Remarks (public):This is clearly quite as distinct from the genus Agaricus as Russula and Lactarius, and cannot with any justice be included in the subgenus Clitocybe. We have several very distinct forms from Ceylon, besides our own A. laccatus, bellus, and one or two continental species. The amethyst-coloured form usually referred to A. laccatus is probably distinct. We have long seen the necessity of this separation, but were unwilling to add to the numerous genera already separated from Agaricus, with greater or less reason.
