Someone else can speak to this with more knowledge but as I understand it as of this year species that had different names for the sexual and asexual forms, now have one name. I think the earliest name has preference but I am not sure.

I wonder

If it is appropriate to use the name of the teleomorph instead of the anamorph. It would appear that the anamorph was originally desrcribed as its own taxon, which makes sense if it wasn’t found beside its teleomorph by the naming author. Index fungorum recognizes it as a distinct taxon. Taxonomy, lol.

I need to figure out how these naming conventions work. If there are different taxa for every stage of maturity of fungal organisms, then rusts must be a real headache…
