often there are errors both in IF as well as MycoBank. But who am I to judge them? It is my view and what I have learned. I found this for the first time myself and ID’d it with the help of some specialists and we had the literature available for it. In this key and stuff they are clearly separated. But I have no idea if this can be applied worldwide and if it is valid or not. Peronosporales and the like are just things I catch when I got ahold of them occasionally. But it should be researched about what is truth and what is suggestion only.

I do not know these species. Maybe Index Fungorum is incorrect on this?

why deprecated? W. blitii is clearly a different species with a different host range. W. amaranthi grows (in Europe) on introduced species, blitii on indigenous. Besides spores are different. Another DNA stuff????
