Outdated nomenclature

PS I wasn't aware that the 1960s name 'Schizophyllum' (rather than than modern 'Ommatoiulus') was still used!

Schizophyllum

I found the label 'Schizophyllum' attached to an illustration in Chinery, M. (2007) Insects of Britain and Western Europe, so I may have to amend this myself. Thanks.

Nomenclature nightmare........

Unfortunately species names change on a regular basis (it's a big inconvenience to be honest). Acadmic works (and iSpot) keep up to date, but poplar press tend not too!

All the best

not always...

....some of iSpot latin still not updated - especially marine algae and invertebrates. The changes seem to be coming thick and fast - making it difficult to keep up with. I tend to look for synonyms of the sp to help.
