See Danny’s comment. I guess let’s keep taxonomy “clean” and use species lists for artificial groups.

Oh I see… you meant 354

Okay, will start adding to it… when I remember!

Fair enough

But that species list won’t work. Many… no, most… lichenicolous fungi are ascomycetes not basidiomycets. And none are lichenized basidiomycetes to my knowledge.

So let’s create a “Lichenicolous Fungi” species list and start adding stuff to it?

i would rather keep collecting these

into the following species list:

than have a non-Latin name grouping them together. the only exceptions to Latin in naming in current use are Duplicate, Mixed collection, Non-fungal and the ever-controversial Imageless. none of these refer to a particular group of fungi, nor a mode or method of fungal ecology. that has, so far, been the job of species lists. opening up one group of fungi to this kind of naming opens up all of them.
