Report of the Nomenclature Committee for Fungi: 18
Abstract:The following specific names are recommended for conservation: Olivea tectonae (T.S. Ramakr. & K. Ramakr.) R.L. Mulder against O. tectonae (Racib.) Thirum.; Craterellus cinereus (Pers. : Fr.) Donk with a conserved type against Craterellus cinereus Pers.; Botrytis brongniartii Sacc. with a conserved type; Buellia subcanescens against B. leptina, Lichen flavicans Sw. against Lichen flavicans Lam.; and it is recommended that Cortinarius speciosissimus not be conserved against C. rubellus. Conservation of Boletus applanatus against B. lipsiense, reconsidered in light of a published rebuttal, remains strongly recommended. The withdrawn proposal to conserve the name Aspicilia farinosa with a conserved type is removed from further consideration. In light of an even split on three ballots, the proposal to conserve Agaricus rachodes with that spelling is referred to the General Committee for a final decision. Finally, the Committee notes the need for the correction of "Lecidea euphorea (Flörke) Nyl.", nom. cons. (1858) to L. euphorea (Flörke) Sommerf. (1826) to reflect an earlier combination.
