British fungi - name updates

List of the current accepted english names of fungi found in the british isles.

Doesn't help when they keep changing the scientific names n'all

Pseudoinonotus dryadeus - Oak Bracket

Just when you think you've got them (partially) licked

I think its a new genus David; Inonotus still exists in many other international taxonomic classifications such as http://eol.org/pages/6758632/names

To avoid confusion (and misguided corrections) we will be using;

Psuedoinonotus dryadeus (syn. Inonotus dryadeus)

Until it changes again that is...

Oh I also understand that Phellinus is in the phylogenetic firing line too.

'Tis the era of the splitters.

yes it is, I would not be too concerned about trying to keep up with them not for arb purposes, psuedoinonotus has been used for a long time anyway in some references.

The names will all go back once this clan of splitters lose place and the others get their foot in the door again!

And they wonder why Mycology is a dying game with no-one wanting to join the ranks! the polotics and name games are worse than in arboriculture!

Re: British fungi - name updates

And I see Pseudotrametes gibbosa, admittedly only in use briefly for 70 years, has gone back to Trametes.

Good to see an official name for Kretzschmaria deusta (Brittle cinder) though! I have been calling it Cinder Fungus for a couple of years, largely for fear of someone asking me to pronounce or spell its scientific name.
