    I guess getting away from common names was why Linnaeus set up the latin binomials. My vote would be to keep the Genus name as a common name. People have managed with cumbersome plant names at their local plant nursery, and I would expect them to do so with fungal names.

    Alternately, a name could be crafted from the Latin Hetero: other/different/not normal and basidion: club shaped, but it doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue.
