Thank you very much for the links. They are exactly what I was looking for. Yes, I’ve noticed Index Fungorum’s lag time, and their tendency to favor European concepts.
Drew – Index Fungorum lags behind the current name because someone has to change it AFTER the publication comes out. Add to that the fact that some changes are not accepted by all researchers and some are debated for years. Abbott & Currah did a nice job on all of the western species in the Helvellaceae.
Abbott & Currah, 1997, The Helvellaceae: Systematic Revision and Occurrence in Northern and Northwestern North America. Mycotaxon 62: 1-125.
features, this species is now referred to as Helvella silvicola by some mycologist.
Synonym in the book i have is Otidea auricula.
Can someone explain to me why Helvella silvicola is accepted over Wynnella silvicola (Beck)Nannf.? Index Fungorum prefers the latter, as does Ian Gibson’s MatchMaker.
