I think a user with sufficient rep on the tag (or a mod) should create the synonym --> (i.e. as the main tag). and are already synonyms, but mushroom is not, which is rather inconsistent. I suspect that 'mushroom' has crept into some questions over time, and currently 26 questions are using the tag (vs. 106 using 'mycology').

  • $\begingroup$ @Chris Since quite few regular visitors of the site have >5 rep on 'mycology' I suspect that mods have to create this on you own - enough synonym voting will probably take a long time. $\endgroup$ Aug 14, 2017 at 13:03
