Abstract

Three genera have been included in Guepinia Fries, one belonging to the Tremellaceae and two to the Dacrymycetaceae. Guepinia Fries is a homonym, since Guepinia Bastard had already been applied to a genus of the Cruciferae. Bastard's name is a synonym of Teesdalia R. Brown 1812 and never came into general use. The valid name for the tremellaceous genus is Phlogiotis Quel. 1886. Gyrocephalus Persoon 1825 is a nomen dubium. Guepiniopsis Patouillard 1883 is valid for species of the Dacrymycetaceae with cupulate, usually superior hymenium and inflated peridial cells. Heterotextus Lloyd 1922 is a synonym. It is suggested that nomenclatorial stability will best be served by conserving Guepinia Fries 1828, represented by G. Spathularia as the lectotype, against Guepinia Fries 1825 and Guepinia Bastard 1812.
