This is a page for a subsection name, not a species name. Surely embarrassing to mistake one for the other, but even the worst of us make mistakes.
Index Fungorum is a great resource but unfortunately it’s irrelevant to whether it’s useful to have a name page on MO.
If you find a feature of a website you use – or, for that matter, the entire website – confusing, you may find that, if you ask wait for help understanding how it works before (ab)using it, your frustrations will disappear. Good luck!
Scientific name consists of a generic name + specific epitheton + authority
Name Pages of MO are embarrassing and useless!
Go directly into the Index/Species Fungorum if you want to know proper spelling and authorities of scientific name of fungi of lichens.
