at least there seems to be a herbarium collection :-)

Pointless discussion

Pointless discussion when you cannot see the specimen, just the label. Adolf

Irene, I don’t recall if I edited the author

on this one, but in either case the “Administrators” are apparently the only ones able to make a correction on these lines.
Glad you are keeping me honest.

that MycoBank is a better source of information when you are dealing with american species.


No, Ron

When the name is in red in IndexFungorum (or SpeciesFungorum), it is NOT a synonym, in this case only Moser’s interpretation of it in 1978(!)
SpeciesFungorum has no opinion about the name umidicola, probably because it’s an american species..

Whoever edited the author: it should be Kauffman (not “sensu Moser”, unless Lorelei Norvell and Judy Rogers explicitly stated that).
