Nomenclature data for Rosellinia necatrix

Rosellinia necatrix Prill. 1902 (Ascomycetes, Xylariales)

    Variant spelling Rosellinia necratrix Prill. 1902  Note: Transcription error? Spelling used by APHIS.

= Graphium desmazierii Sacc. 1878 [1879]

  Variant spelling Graphium desmazieri Sacc. 1878

= Dematophora necatrix R. Hartig 1883

    ≡ Hypoxylon necatrix (R. Hartig) P.M.D. Martin 1976  Note: Not (Berl. ex Prill.) P.M.D. Martin 1968; invalid name, lacked basionym reference, no latin protologue. Anamorph in teleomorph genus (Art. 59.6).

    ≡ Rhizomorpha necatrix R. Hartig 1883  Note: Simultaneous publication of two alternate names based on conidial and rhizomorph morphology (see Art. 34.2).

Notes: Saccardo described the teleomorph of this fungus under the name Rosellinia desmazieresii (Berk. & Broome) Sacc. 1878 but did not explicitly exclude the type of the basionym, Sphaeria desmazierii Berk & Broome 1852. As such, the name Rosellinia desmazieresii refers to the fungus described by Berk. & Broome (Art. 7.4), not to the fungus now referred to as Rosellinia necatrix (see Petrini 1992). Hartig (1883) speculated based on conidial morphology that the teleomorph of Dematophora necatrix might belong in Rosellinia or a closely related genus. Berlese (1892) reinforced these speculations but did not formally describe the teleomorph. Prillieux (1902) originally published the name as Rosellinia necatrix without any other authors listed, but in 1904 used the author attribution (R. Hart.) Berlese. The name is sometimes erroneously cited as Rosellinia necatrix Berl. ex Prill. 1904. Teleomorphic type material is not extant; Petrini (1992) chose not to designate a neotype because he could not locate a specimen on the original host. Francis (1985) suggested that Rosellinia necatrix could be considered a synonym of Rosellinia bothrina 1882, but this has not been widely adopted (see Petrini 1992, Nakamura et al. 2000). From Dematophora necatrix - Originally published as Rhizomorpha (Dematophora) necatrix, this is the type of the genus Dematophora. Rhizomorpha necatrix is also validly published, see Art. 34.2 allowing use of alternative names previous to 1953. Petrini (1992) has selected a lectotype. According to Petrini (1992), the earliest description of this fungus was by Saccardo, as Graphium desmazierii Sacc. 1878. Saccardo erroneously assigned the teleomorph to Rosellinia desmazierii (Berk. & Broome) Sacc. 1878, a misapplication of the basionym Sphaeria desmazierii Berk. & Broome 1852. Petrini (1992) recommended that the specific epithet necatrix be retained for the anamorph of this fungus rather than the older epithet desmazierii due to the importance of Dematophora necatrix as a pathogen. In the absence of a conservation proposal, this is contrary to the principle of priority in the current Code. From Graphium desmazierii - Original orthography. Mistakenly described by Saccardo as the anamorph of Rosellinia desmazierii (Berk. & Broome) Sacc. 1878 (misapplied, see Petrini 1992).
