Author's notes

Growing on a fallen long-dead wattle trunk. I see this species is in the list twice, once with the species name hypenated and once not. Which is correct? I'll amalgamate them if I know which one to get rid of.

Jackie I can't be 100% sure on this one - specimen is a bit aged. Though to add to your confusion re the name Fomitopsis lilacinogilva (correct) had a name change in 2016 (Fungal Diversity 80: 366) to Rhodofomitopsis lilacinogilva. If you want to check a name do a search in Index Fungorum Search Page, if it says what you've typed in doesn't exist check your spelling or if the genus is correct type that in and see what species it has listed. For some genera this can be huge so look around the spelling of the name you're after. Sometimes in field guides the spellings can be incorrect.

Damn, not even to genus? I've fixed the name of this one and Cyptotrama in the species list. Sounds a bit complicated finding the right current name - might leave it to you to correct me!
