The Rama in his Darkei Moshe writes that we pasken like Tosfos that today mayim achronim is not necessary.

However, The Mechaber 181:10 writes that there is an opinion who holds we don't do mayim achronim, but the Rama does not say anything on this se'if, why doesn't the Rama say V'haci Noheg like in the Darkei Moshe?

I'm not sure why this is such a strong question. The Rama doesn't comment on everything – Double AA Jun 11 '14 at 2:12
The Rama is totally absent from this siman,and he mentions it in his Darkei Moshe ,its not a small halacha,wouldn't you think a vachi noheg would make it in at least? – sam Jun 11 '14 at 2:17
Not necessarily. Plenty of times the Rama doesn't bring everything down in the Mapah. – Double AA Jun 11 '14 at 2:58
I understand that,but when it is one shittah which holds like that ,I would think it is necessary,but what do I know,that's why I am curious. – sam Jun 11 '14 at 3:01
Consider for instance the Darkei Moshe OC 127 – Double AA Jun 11 '14 at 3:05
