In this case I don’t think IF are using the best or most current name. Mycobank claims that Deconica horizontalis is the current name. I think Noordeloos’ placement of this species in Deconica is correct. Phylogenetics support this opinion. This paper shows that Melanotus is nested within Deconica.
