Fungi species showing up in "unknown" search


I was browsing the “unknown” category, and this observation for a Rosy Conk (Fomitoposis cajanderi) appeared in it:

The taxon page for this species shows as just Life>Rosy polypore

Someone tried to create the species, and spelled it wrong. The proper spelling is Fomitopsis. They spelled it Fomitoposis.

Because they spelled the genus wrong, it has nothing to link to.

It will have to get cleaned via a merge.

It looks like you entered a dissenting ID, and another curator has marked it inactive as there are now no records, so you can probably mark this topic closed/solved.



Thanks @graysquirrel, @cmcheatle, and @kokhuitan for resolving this. I’m going to close the issue.
