Index Fungorum has this as Dacrymyces spathularius, though it's listed as D. spathularia in https://assets.researchsquare.com/files/rs-950799/v1/926e1125-a376-45bb-99ee-95602e1d528d.pdf.

@alan_rockefeller I think Index Fungorum is wrong on this one. Schweinitz intended to use the epithet spathularia as a noun and not as an adjective. The basionym is Merulius spathularia and not Merulius spathularius as it would be if it was used as an adjective. Therefore this is probably an unneeded correction. I will ask Paul Kirk directly about that.
