Merge proposal[edit]

A small genus with not a lot of substantial differences between species, I don't think separate articles for each species is called for. Everything of note about this group could be easily discussed within one article, with small sections for Chroogomphus rutilus, C. vinicolor, etc. Separate articles are just going to lead to a lot of overlap, a lot of boilerplate information being repeated, etc. Peter G Werner 10:11, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

Aww..putting a taxobox is the only problem (haven't done it yet on the sp. page though) - are all species edible? Cas Liber 10:16, 8 January 2007 (UTC)
Yes, edible, but not outstanding. Arora mentions putting dried Chroogomphus whole and still dried into tomato sauces and that they're good this way. I've done this and agree with him. Otherwise, its a very poor edible, tending toward sliminess with little flavor. Peter G Werner 10:30, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

OK - I've done the merge so as to get it on DYK and be done with it Cas Liber 12:01, 11 January 2007 (UTC)

Description section needed[edit]

This article needs a section describing the defining characteristics of the genus as a whole, both macro and micro. There lots of descriptions under "species", but almost nothing about what traits define Chroogomphus. Peter G Werner 00:30, 14 January 2007 (UTC)
