About the U.S. National Fungus Collections Nomenclature Database Back to Nomenclature search form
The nomenclature database includes the nomenclatural information published in Farr et al. (1989), Fungi on Plants and Plant Products in the United States (APS Press, St. Paul MN) in its entirety. Since 1989, data have been added irregularly and the nomenclature has been reviewed for selected plant hosts. Records that have not been recently updated should be interpreted with caution.
Updated nomenclatural information provided on this website consists of the following:
Names excluded from the nomenclature database:
Additional information: General information has been provided in notes on nomenclature, geographic distribution, host plants, substrates, and diseases caused by the fungus. These notes summarize information derived primarily from the literature cited in the nomenclature entry. They are not intended to supplant or replace the detailed information available in the Fungus-Host Distribution Database or other databases.
Literature: Literature citations indicate the primary literature sources used to compile nomenclatural information. Additional literature can be found in the Literature Database. This literature may be the same or different from the literature in the fungus-host distribution database.
Disclaimer: We urge the user to consult primary literature sources for confirmation. While we attempt to verify the accuracy of information provided on this site, no warranty is expressed or implied, and we cannot assume liability for consequences of omissions or errors. For the most part data in the fungus-host distribution database is taken directly from the literature and has not been verified.
