CONGRESS ACTION, XI IMC (2018)
Congres action on proposals-to-amend Chapter F
at the XI IMC,
the 2018, San Juan Congress. Based on:
Tom W. May,
Scott A. Redhead,
& Amy Y. Rossman
“XI International Mycological Congress: report of
Congress action on nomenclature proposals relating to fungi”
(in IMA Fungus 9: xxii-xxvii. 2018).
Proposals F-008 to F-018 were submitted late
(dubbed “from the floor”,
although submitted before the beginning of the Section) and were not
included in the Synopsis (and were not available for the guiding vote).
At the Congress, proposals were dealt with in this order: Prop. F-007,
F-005, F-006, F-012, F-013, F-018, F-001, F-002, F-003, F-004, F-014,
F-008, F-009, F-015, F-016, F-017, F-010, F-011.

- accepting the proposed Art. F.5.9,
- accepting the proposed addition to Rec. F.5A,
- and by replacing the proposed new Art. F.5.6-F.5.8 by:
When the identifier issued for a name by a
recognized repository is cited incorrectly in the protologue,
that name may nevertheless be validly published, provide
that the identifier for the name was issued prior to valid
publication. The identifier cited in the protologue is
treated as a correctable error.”
An identifier remains associated with the
name or designation for which it was issued. In order
for a designation to become validly published, a separate
identifier must be obtained.”
