ON THE FUNGAL SPECIES GNOMONIOPSIS CASTANEAE ("CASTANEA") AND ITS SYNONYM G. SMITHOGILVYI

G. Tamietti

Abstract


The two fungal species Gnomoniopsis castaneae ("castanea") G. Tamietti and G. smithogilvyi L.A. Shuttlew., E.C.Y. Liew & D.I. Guest were described independently in 2012 in Visentin et al. (2012) and Shuttleworth et al. (2012), respectively, but they were recently demonstrated to be the same species (Shuttleworth et al., 2015). Contrary to what reported in both Shuttleworth et al. (2015) and Linaldeddu et al. (2016), G. castaneae ("castanea") was validly published electronically as a full manuscript in Portable Document Format (PDF), with DOI, available online (ex art. 29 ICN, McNeill et al., 2012) in the JPP official website on May 21st 2012 (L. Rubino, JPP Managing Editor, written personal communication), hence earlier than G. smithogilvyi, that was validly published online on June 4th 2012. Therefore, the legitimate name of the above fungal species is G. castaneae ("castanea"), that has priority over G. smithogilvyi.
