Chris Walker commented on Chris Walker's newsfeed:
Similar problem with Rhizophagus. Besides being an arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus, the name is valid for a genus of wood-boring beetles. Nice pictures of the beetles, but they are in the wrong Kingdom's pages.

Chris Walker marked the classification from "Index Fungorum" as preferred for "Sclerocystis Berk. & Broome 1875".
We have a marine shellfish Glomus nitens in the fungal (Glomeromycota) page for Glomus. I am not sure how to get these images moved to their correct Kingdom's pages.
Chris Walker commented on an older version of Glomus macrocarpum LECTOTYPE sporocarp fragments:
The Tulasne brothers never knew that this was a mycorrhizal fungus. The link with these fungi and mycorrhizas was not understood until the 1950s

Amazing to think this was collected in the middle of the 19th Century!
