Observation 211234: Tremellodon schweinitzii
When: 2015-07-19
No herbarium specimen

Notes: Many scattered on ground alongside dirt trail in mixed woods. I recognize this as Tremellodron pallidum, but think S. pallida may be “the new name”. Trying to keep up with name changes; correct me if I am wrong here.

comment there; then click on “About Sebacina schweineitzii” in upper right corner. That’ll take you to the “Most Confident Observations” which has some related comments/discussion re: name(s) for this species. I think this is the most up-to-date info … as of this moment.

to be published? Thanks very much for taking the time to comment on my observation There’s so much yet to know about fungi. I enjoy the learning process.

due to the nomenclatural error. Sebacina schweinitzii has not been published yet, so you might want to keep using the old name for a bit so you don’t get stuck using a name that is about to change. You could also be presumptuous and call it the new name, under the assumption that it will get published that way.

Thanks a lot, Alan. I usually select from the

According to Index Fungorum Record 808197, the species epithet should have been schweinitzii.
