“Neither of these are currently accepted classes.”

that has no bearing on their ability to segregate and sort body forms, which has and will always have value in any database, digital or otherwise.

you tried to make the same argument here over a year ago. these names are not going anywhere, I promise.

Why hasn’t Discomycetes be deprecated?

Is there really a value in maintaining these polyphyletic form names? The same question applies to “Gasteromycetes”. Neither of these are currently accepted classes.
