Johnston, P.R. Validation of Moellerodiscus coprosmae. Mycotaxon 109: 437–438. 2009.

ABSTRACT:  When originally published, the protologue of Moellerodiscus coprosmae inadvertently referred to type specimens in two distinct collections, one a herbarium (PDD), the other a culture collection (ICMP). The ICMP culture had been derived from germinated ascospores taken from the specimen subsequently dried and deposited in PDD. Article 8.4 of ICBN (Vienna Code) allows that type specimens of fungi may be living cultures, thus two separate specimens were designated as the holotype. This paper validates the name by clarifying that the dried specimen PDD 64924 is the holotype, and that ICMP 14146 is a culture derived from the type.
