"Stemonitis pumila Corda", Icon. fung. 5:59, pl.3, fig. 57 (1842) [see pdf]

[Cited by Rostafinsky, Sluzowce monogr. 198. 1874, as a synonym of Comatricha typhina (F. H. Wigg.) Rostaf. "p. p." in idex, and copied by later authors. Neither the illustration nor the description justify this. Corda made no such combination. He be lieved, with some reservation, he was dealing with S. pumila Fr. (apud Martin & Alexopoulos, Myxomycetes 203. 1969)]
