Mycobank still lists Discina perlata as valid and distinct. For now I’m going to list them both as approved synonyms. There must be story behind the Species Fungorum conclusion since D. perlata was published before D. ancilis. However, I haven’t been able to track any of the motivation behind the synonymy.
