Tricholoma myomyces is a mushroom of the agaric genus Tricholoma, usually considered to be a synonym of Tricholoma terreum. The species was first described scientifically by Christian Hendrik Persoon in 1794 as Agaricus myomyces,[3] and later transferred to the genus Tricholoma by Danish mycologist Jakob Emanuel Lange in 1933.[4] It is found in Europe and northern North America.[5]

Almost all modern sources consider T. myomyces to be a synonym of T. terreum,[6][7][8] but there are some exceptions. Bon mentions that T. myomyces has been defined for lowland mushrooms with white gills and a fleecy cap.[9] Courtecuisse separates it on a similar basis - the cap surface is felty and the gills are whitish and more crowded.[10] Moser distinguished T. myomyces on the basis that the gills should go yellow.[11]
