Dacrymyces chrysospermus current name for D. palmatus Bres.
By: Joseph D. Cohen (Joe Cohen)

As of the date of this Comment, the Index Fungorum entry for Dacrymyces palmatus Bres. says that the Species Fungorum current name is Dacrymyces chrysospermus Berk. & M.A. Curtis. (And the Species Fungorum listing for Dacrymyces chrysospermus shows Dacrymyces chrysospermus Berk. & M.A. Curtis with Dacrymyces palmatus Bres. as a synonym.)
But the MycoBank entry for Dacrymyces palmatus Bres. does not include any synonyms. Perhaps MycoBank has not (yet) caught up to the change in Index Fungorum.

Is this different from Dacrymyces palmatus?

According to Species Fungorum, Dacrymyces palmatus (Schwein.) Burt is deprecated in favor of Dacrymyces chrysospermus Berk. & M.A. Curtis. However, Index Fungorum also lists Dacrymyces palmatus Bres. with no opinion about it’s validity (meaning no entry in Species Fungorum).
