A number of external data-sets have been used in checking and compiling information. In particular CABI's Funindex, Dictionary of Fungi classification, and databases of family names have been invaluable. Landcare Research is a member of a partnership which manages the IndexFungorum global nomenclator. All of these data-sets are available on-line at CABI Bioscience Databases.
