Table 1 Recommended generic names of Pucciniomycotina among sexual-asexual names that compete for use. The recommended name is in bold; see text for the rationale behind these recommendations. For each generic name this list provides the author, its date and place of publication, type species of the genus, its basionym, their dates of publication and the currently accepted name, if different. The action required is indicated in the last column such as approval by the Nomenclature Committee for Fungi (NCF) for those generic names that do not have priority and thus need protection.
