“Amanita subgenus Amanita is defined as comprising all and only those taxa of the genus Amanita that bear spores that are inamyloid, i.e., have spore walls that do not become darkened by exposure to iodine (e.g., Melzer’s Reagent).”
There’s no point to it being here anymore. I removed it.
that anywhere the (subgenus ____) convention is used, the site interprets everything in parentheses as part of the author’s name. Go to ‘Edit Name’ on any subgenus-containing taxon and you’ll see it listed in the ‘Author’ field, every time. I’m suddenly wondering if this has any collateral impacts elsewhere on the site.
There also appears to be no standardization of usage between the terms subgenus, section and subsection. It might be worthwhile to flesh out when and where each term is best applied.
EDIT: creating a name with parentheses in the name yields the error: Name is invalid for the rank [insert rank]. sounds like a site fix to add to the pile…
