Fungal Names and Synonyms
Fungal Names and Synonyms
Indexed By Genus


Go To Index Based on Species Name Search Image Bank

On these pages, we provide an index to current and obsolete fungus names. This version of the index is organized by genus name--we separately provide a version organized by species name. Start with the portion of the name you currently have and follow the links to learn about its current names and synonyms. Clicking on the genus name will take you to a page showing the various synonyms of its associated species. Along with each genus, you will also find indications of its current status as legal fungal name, its form classification (mould or yeast), its sexual group (Ascomycete, Basidiomycete, Zygomycete, or Fungi Imperfecti), whether it is usually considered to be dematiaceous or a dermatophyte, and a link to our detailed mycology page for this fungus (if available). If these terms are unfamiliar, please to refer to our notes on fungal nomenclature and taxonomy. A list of additional resources can be found at the bottom of this page.
