has not been put in synonymy according to Index Fungorum but I think it is the same. One issue discussed on this site in the past is where Trametes gibbosa fits into the discussion of L. elegans. Once I was told by a polypore authority that L. elegans was a subtropical species reaching Ohio as a Northern limit. I think that there were few if any records of this species in New England until relatively recently. It is common now.

for D. confragosa and L. elegans.

Looking at online photos of these two species, it appears they are difficult to tell apart just from photos.

Is D ambigua a synonym for L. elegans (formerly Trametes elegans)?
