Stemonitis pyriformis (Bull.) J.F. Gmel., Syst. nat., ed. 13 (Leipzig), 2(2):1469 (1792) [hide pdf]

[Based on Sphaerocarpus piriformis Bull., which is cited by Berlese in Saccardo, Syll. Fung. 7:447. 1888, as a synonym of Hemiarcyria clavata (Pers.) Rostaf. The same combination was used earlier by Willdenow, Fl. Berol. Prodr. 1787, and by Roth, Tent . Fl. Germ. 1788, and all are sometimes spelled piriformis by later authors. The name can legitimately be regarded as a cause of confusion (apud Martin & Alexopoulos, Myxomycetes 203. 1969)]
