Index of Fungi

"The Index of Fungi provides a comprehensive alphabetical listing of recently published names of fungi and related organisms at all nomenclatural ranks."

Index of Fungi is a list of names of new genera, species and intraspecific taxa, new combinations and new names of fungi and lichens, compiled from world literature.

The Index of Fungi compiles recently published names of Fungi (living and fossil) at all ranks from world literature, and also includes some related organisms now classified in the Protozoa and Chromista. The resource consists of a biannual listing of some 2,000 names per annum, providing full bibliographic and nomenclatural details of new taxa, and new and revised names at all ranks, arranged alphabetically and with host/substratum and epithet/name indexes, cumulating into a volume over 10 years.
