It’s stupid, and lack of respect to start changing the original names, just because they weren’t spelled in correct latin.

Same here,

I prefer the old spelling…

There were changes to the rules, and there is now a subrule, I forget which one, that the “ae” used to put the latin words together should now be an “i”. It is there in the current rules, but you have to look closely.

I do not know,

why all those names vittaeformis, pezizaeformis and so on are not valid. They are orthographically correct. Galerina vittaeformis means “in the form of a band” and derives from Latin “vitta,-ae” which is femininum and not from “vittum” or “vittus”. Or did I get something wrong here???
