I love that this image is already the top image hit in Google for Zelleromyces ravenelii, but looking at MycoBank and Index Fungorum I think the confusion is due to Octaviania stephensii var. ravenelii being the basionym for what is now Zelleromyces ravenelii and Octaviania ravenelii being a synonym for Calostoma ravenelii. I lean towards follow MycoBank on this one and keeping the taxa separate. I’ll work on making that happen.

I saw that but I’m still confused about Index Fungorum. I am not supporting it is a Zelleromyces!

i guess this fungus a rarity?

or maybe we should use: Calostoma ravenelii var. ravenelii (Berk.) Massee, Ann. Bot., Lond. 2(5): 25 (1888)
