Trichia turbinata (Bolton) With., Arr. Brit. pl., ed. 3, 4:400 (1796) [see pdf]

[Cited by G. Lister, Monogr. Mycetozoa, ed. 2:207. 1911, as possible synonym of T. favoginea (Batsch) Pers., in ed. 3:208. 1925, of T. varia (Pers. ex J. F. Gmel.) Pers. In both cases the combination is attributed to Sowerby. But Sowerby adopts Withering's name for the species he illustrates in his pl. 85. 1797. Clathrus turbinatus Huds., also cited, is a shortening of a polynomial and is invalid, but the combination was validated by the publication of C. turbinatus Bolton, Hist. Fung. Halifax 3:94. 1789. The name appears in numerous publications but it is impossible to say more than that it is a sessile Trichia (Martin & Alexopoulos, Myxomycetes 168. 1969). The synonym with Trichia varia (Pers. ex J. F. Gmel.) Pers. is marked with a "?" by Farr (Fl. Neotrop. 16:93. 1976)]
