Thread subject: :: PESI accepted vs Index fungorum current name

Posted by BubikolRamios on 03-11-2011 17:41

status: accepted, at bottom link to next page:
status:current name

isn't that same thing: accepted = current name ? (the terms for species are different on both pages)

That is which, of those is right ?

Or , if PESI got data from index fungorum, shouldn't then be accepted at PESI = current at index fungorum ?

My interpretation

accepted name
1. the designation adopted by an author as the correct name for a taxon under consideration.
uri: http://bionomencl...ted+name/1

current name
Probably just indicates under which name it is included in the index, not necessarily putting a taxonomic judgement on the name.
