I started to propose G. penetrans and was advised that the name was deprecated. The site showed two varieties of G. penetrans that I knew nothing about. Then I remembered reading Kuo’s article about the confusion between that species and G. sapineus. Hence my proposal.
G. penetrans, as a possible alternative. There have been a few good discussions about the possible differences between these two species… if they are in fact different. For instance…
MO now tells me that “Gymnopilus penetrans” is a depreciated name, but no alternative name was suggested. So, I’m guessing that the currently accepted status is as per Kuo’s claim that the two names should be regarded as synonyms.
