Heim did not properly publish Hodophilus hymenocephalus. The correct name is Hodophilus hymenocephalus (A.H. Sm. & Hesler) Birkebak & Adamčík (2016)

may be the proper genus but for some reason it is listed as an invalid combination in both Mycobank and Index Fungorum. and which some MO nomenclature person may be able to explain as to why.

The paper was very recently published, I don’t know what’s going on at Mycobank, and I don’t know why IndexFungorum acknowledges the new species in the Hodophilus paper but not the new (re?)combinations of hymenocephala and others out of Camarophyllopsis from the same paper.

IF’s position seems erroneous (to me), and the paper looks great (to me), and the first author (Shua) has contributed a lot to MO. Unless you got more reasons to keep the old name, I really think it should be Hodophilus hymenocephalus here.

of this species. Index Fungorum lists the name change as 1986…, if you can believe that!
