What’s up with P. arhizus?

The link to the 2002 article in New Phytologist contains no discussion of any species called P. arhizus; and only 2 references mention P. arhizus in their title – both from 1990. Has P. arhizus become a deprecated name? The 2002 Martin, Diez, et al paper (the prior link) refers to P. tinctorius as widely distributed, and appears to be the name used in their phylogenetic analysis. IndexFungorum shows P. arhizus as the current name for what was called P. tinctorius (http://www.speciesfungorum.org/...)
