The proposal by Redhead & al. in Taxon 55: 1029–1030 (2006) to conserve Boletus applanatus against B. lipsiensis comes anomalously late after acceptance of the name Ganoderma lipsiense as correct for what had been known as G. applanatum s.str.

The arguments for retaining the presently correct, unambiguous G. lipsiense are presented.
