David Kaley Thanks for the info David. I think you're right, unless it becomes commonly accepted it makes sense to continue to list the genus as Inonotus. 07-05-12
David Humphries No worries,
It looks like the update of the name occured in 2001, To be honest, I was unaware. Most (if not all) of my reference material, list it as Inonotus, which had been its given name since 1908.
Previous to that, it had neen known as Polyporus dryadeus (1821) & before that as Boletus dryadeus (1799)

For the purpose of this directory, I intend to keep this species listed under Inonotus, as the majority of Arbs will know it as Inonotus dryadeus

David Kaley Apologies, got my wires completely crossed there - 'hispidus' was a bit of a typo. Some recent sources refer to this fungi as Pseudoinonotus dryadeus rather than Inonotus dryadeus. 06-05-12
David Humphries David, think this should possibly be in the Inonotus 'hispidus' gallery.

thanks

David Kaley Reading up on Inonotus hispidus, some sources call it Pseudoinonotus hispidus. Does anybody have any idea if this is the old or new name for this fungi? 06-05-12
