and thank you very much for your input.

i understand that as well but, we designate species names w/o any evidence.

seems like a safer approach than that at least…correct or no?

Richard, the answer to your question…

The clades retrieved in the mentioned study of Dr. Vellinga are characterized by a combination of features (like germ pore or not, trama trabecular or regular, the differences in the pileus covering and lamp-connections etc.) and are consequently clearly defined. Without having information about the described features in connection with this observation (and no specimen available), it is not possible to apply clade names to this observation.

Thanks for providing the link to this very interesting paper.

i have a question…

what is the best way, or is it possible to, or is it even worth trying to correctly propose clade specific names on MO?

take for example…


is it a better idea to stay more broad w/ the idea…or is “nomenclature” the issue?
