General information

 Summary:Dictyosteliomycotina Caval.-Sm. (1993) [MB#90099] 
 MycoBank #:90099 
 Authors (abbreviated):Caval.-Sm. 
 Year of effective publication:1993 
 Name type:Basionym 
 Name status:Legitimate 
 Remarks:As 'Dictyostelia'; As 'Lister, 1909 stat. nov.'; ref. to Lister, Mycetozoa, in Lankester (ed.), Treatise of Zoology - 1 (Protozoa), Part 1: 65, 1909; but here the taxon is given as 'Order Dictyosteliaceae'. Since no families are listed below it is assumed that Lister is using order in the sense of 'Natural Order', that is equivalent to a family. The ending given would seem to confirm this. However, this is not the earliest use of the family name which dates back to 1877. The earliest use of the name at ordinal rank is that of Olive, Bot. Rev. 36: 70, 1970
