I would like to know how to do a taxon split where one name was made inactive under another name but they should not be synonyms. The instructions are not clear on how to do this.
Do I make a new taxon with that name that is already in the system?
I would like to fix this taxon:
The name Sarcoporia polyspora needs to be split out separate from
Erastia salmonicolor 471248
I have no idea or reference why they had been grouped together on iNaturalist.
This Observation explains the need to split these taxa: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/33317136
I have checked relevant papers and also Index Fungorum and Mycobank to confirm this.
Thanks for your help,
