No sin at all to use sublateritium..

Everyone would know what you mean then, and it’s easy to change the name later.

I use to check both IndexFungorum and MycoBank:
http://www.mycobank.org/MycoTaxo.aspx
and they don’t always have the same opinion.
I have the impression that MycoBank is more active and more up to date.

In this case I strongly agree with MycoBank, that uses lateritium as the current name, and sublateritium as a synonym.

I have asked myself for a long time why the name sublateritium has been used at all, if there is no lateritium..
The first known published lateritium was made by Schaeffer 1774. I haven’t seen the actual description or picture of it, but the common name he used, says enough to make me convinced: “Der ziegelfarbige Stockschwamm”
And I’m also pleased to see that the new “Funga Nordica” uses the name lateritium.

Hypholoma sublateritium ??

Irene thank you for your determination of Hypholoma. After knowing the genus I browsed through my (mainly not brand new) Slovenian literature about mushrooms. I was unable to find the species name H. lateritium. The ‘closest’ is H. sublateritium. In Index/Species Fungorum I see that both names are somehow related (do not really understand how). Apparently some forms and variations of H. sublateritium are synonyms of H. lateritium.

On the other hand, H. sublateritium is also a ‘current name’.

According to my literature H. sublateritium is very common in the region where I live and also its descriptions fit well to my pictures. Now I don’t know how to call it to ‘fit local conditions’. Would be a capital sin to call my pictures H. sublateritium? I would be grateful for your comment.

Warmest regards
