The types of Comatricha anastomosans Kowalski, C. filamentosa Meyl., C. suksdorfii Ellis & Everh. var. aggregata Meyl. and Lamproderma longifilum H. Neubert, Nowotny & K. Baumann were studied. Comatricha anastomosans is synonymized with C. filamentosa, C. suksdorfii var. aggregata with Symphytocarpus confluens (Cooke & Ellis) Ing & Nann.-Bremek. A new lectotype for C. filamentosa is proposed. The synonymy of L. longifilum with C. anastomosans is confirmed. SEM and light microscope micrographs of spores, capillitia and sporocarps are given.
