Thanks @cooperj ! Cool work! There are some others waiting for this as well: Pycnoporus cinnabarinus has been found out to be a Trametes (with sequences) etc. I guess Lenzites betulina was already changed here into Trametes as well...

Yes - I'll do them when I get some time. It doesn't look like other curators will do them.

I was waiting for our regional polypore taxonomist to make some decisions locally and then I would feel more comfortable. That hasn't happened. However the phylogenetic data does seem compelling. I'm a bit wary because in some other groups I think the evidence is less compelling and proposed changes probably won't survive in the longer term. Changing names back and forth according to every latest dubious paper doesn't look good.
