On these pages and subpages, we provide an index to current and obsolete fungus names. This version of the index is organized by species name--we separately provide a version that is organized by genus name. In this version of the index, the designation "(obsolete)" indicates that the given species name is obsolete in the context of this genus. The genus name itself is not necessarily obsolete.
