Title: The first validly published laccate Ganoderma species from East Asia: G. dimidiatum comb. nov., the correct name for G. japonicum
Year: 2016
Volume: 47
Pages: 263-268.


Abstract: The taxonomic interpretations of Ganoderma japonicum (Polyporus japonicus) was controversial in mycological studies and formerly proposed to be dropped for consideration, because of the lack of type specimen. However, according to the International Code for Nomenclature for algae, fungi and plants, P. japonicus is a superfluous name for Boletus dimidiatus published validly by Thunberg in 1784. The original material of B. dimidiatus is available at the Museum of Evolution at Uppsala University (UPS). Therefore the new combination Ganoderma dimidiatum is proposed hereby.
