We use MO

One cannot use MO for tracking one’s specimens. We use it as a secondary database that complements our collections for those collections, for which we have some picture documentation. I don’t blame you that you are not using MO for documenting your specimens. On one hand, Mushroom Observer has high demands on your time and on the precision in the locality definition, but on the other hand you MO observation becomes useless if somebody changes your MO observation name. We still think that MO stands well above all similar systems for posting documented observations. after we started to protect our “Original Herbarium Label” name in the Note, we found it almost ideal for documenting our collections. The only problems is that MO would not attract any professional mycologists because of the fatal errors in the MO system design.

they are the same. And I do have a specimens, just didn’t click the box here. I don’t use MO to keep track of my herbarium specimens, (there are other websites for that..)

Index Fungorum is just an opinion on the name, we are all free to read
Phylogenetic Itudies in the Family Sarcosomataceae(Ascomycota, Pezizales) and based on our own educated opinion, decided which name we want to use.

In Index/Species Fungorum, Donadinia nigrella (Seaver) M. Carbone, Agnello & P. Alvaradois considered a synonym (“deprecated” by the MO terminology) of Plectania nannfeldtii Korf. Your posting looks like a mixed collection. Are the more robust sporocarps the same as those more slender ones? Hard to tell if you don’t have any herbarium specimens.
