Taxonomic Problems

  • Robert W. Lichtwardt


The taxonomy of trichomycetes is replete with the same kinds of classificatory and nomenclatural problems found in many other large, variable, and understudied groups of organisms. The problems with trichomycetes, however, are compounded by the habitation of the fungi within arthropod guts. This presents some peculiar situations not found in other taxa of fungi. Part of what follows is paraphrased or quoted (with permission) from Lichtwardt, 1978a.
