Remarks (internal):At present, no accepted type specimen exists for this taxon. Fries (1821) accepted the name, thus, giving it priority according to the current ICBN rules. Until a suitable collection from the type locality has been designated as a neotype, the above described collection (TENN no. 3138) can be used to determine the concept of the taxon studied in this paper. This species was placed in the genus Bankera by Pouzar (1955) and the name change was accepted by Harrison (1968), Coker and Beers (1951), Maas Geesteranus (1975), and Baird (1984).
