Let’s see if the “fake” name Lichenicolous Fungi sticks

If Imageless and Mixed Observation can be accepted by the community, so too, hopefully, can this…

Do you have an idea on how to create a valid name to refer to the commonly used term “Lichenicolous fungi”?
This will be very convenient, when we don’t know which one it could be; otherwise we have to use the name of the host, which is not the purpose of the observation.
