From the beginning of our studies in Sarcosomataceae Kobayasi,
we noticed many discrepancies between the Bulgaria mexicana Ellis
& Holw. original diagnosis and the features of the common northwestern
American species known as Sarcosoma mexicanum (Ellis &
Holw.) Paden & Tylutki [≡ Plectania mexicana (Ellis & Holw.) Paden].
Therefore, we thought that they could represent two different, independent
species. Besides, phylogenetic studies conducted by
CARBONE et al. (2013) have demonstrated that the lineage of the latter
species places it in the Urnula clade. For that reason it became
necessary to clarify the position of the epithet “mexicana”, and so
Urnula padeniana is described as new to replace the incorrect name
of the northwestern American species.
