Fungi

Hello

I'd be grateful for someone could help out with the following question on fungi

I found this on the NBN Gateway: Lactarius trivialis (Fr.) Fr.  but I also found Lactarius trivialis (Fr.: Fr.) Fr., 1838 on another site


Similarly with Suillus luteus (Fr.) S. F. Gray I also found S. luteus (L.:Fr.) S. F. Gray



Questions

1. Is the : the same as ex e.g., Amanita muscaria [L. ex Fr.] Hooker can also be written as Amanita muscaria [L.: Fr.] Hooker, if yes what does ex mean?


2. Why is there a semi-colon e.g., (Fr.: Fr.), (L.:Fr.), why Fr: Fr or L:Fr?


Thank you

Hi Elisabeth

It's all to do with author priority and subsequent changes.

L. is Linnaeus and Fr. is Elias Magnus Fries - much more about it here :
