Spelling

There is some confusion as to the proper spelling of this taxon. The Index Fungorum spells it Chrysothricaceae, while the Outline of Ascomycota - 2007 spells it Chrysotrichaceae. Both spellings are commonly encountered in the literature. However, the family was originally described by Alexander Zahlbruckner in 1907,[2] and he spelled it Chrysothricaceae, so that is the proper spelling.
