Trying to keep discussion of names/taxa on their pages…

This seems to be a good name despite the few-year-old belowmentioned hearsay. See, for example, Motato-Vasquez et al, 2018, on Bresadolia ( – the ITS+LSU tree clearly & confidently keeps this species with Lentinus, away from Polyporus.

What’s wrong with the Zmitrovich paper?

at least one polyporologist seems to think this Zmitrovich paper is a joke. that might have something to do with MycoBank’s opinion. i was suspicious when I saw it was in the International Journal of Medicinal Mushrooms. That’s John Holliday’s minimally peer-reviewed repository for all manner of mushroom crackpottery.

MycoBank does not consider L. brumalis the current name.
