Hawksworth, David L., Victor J. Rico, José María Barrasa & Jana Kocourková. On the identity of Velenovský's Cantharellus peltigerae. Mycotaxon 109: 315–318. 2009.

ABSTRACT:  The application of the name Cantharellus peltigerae, which was introduced by Velenovský in 1920 (not 1922 as commonly cited), has been uncertain. A spirit bottle containing original material has now been located in PRC, and found to contain two species of Arrhenia, A. peltigerina and A. cfr. griseopallida. The first grows on old thalli of Peltigera species, and the second on soil. The element on Peltigera is designated as lectotype here to fix Velenovský´s name as a later taxonomic synonym of A. peltigerina. Original material of Mycena praecox, also described by Velenovský in 1920, was said to be present in the same spirit bottle, but no Mycena was to be found inside.

KEYWORDS: agaric, Basidiomycota, lectotypification, lichenicolous fungi
