Notes on Taxonomy: [Edit]

The name Langermannia should not be used, since the name Calvatia has been conserved by the International Code of Botanical Nomenclature. see and scroll down to “Appendix III Nomina generica conservanda et rejicienda” which translates as “Conserved and rejected scientific names”

You will see that the name Calvatia has been conserved over Langermannnia, so according to the rules of the ICBN, we should always use Calvatia as the genus name, not Langermannia.
