A permanent Nomenclature Committee for Fungi is installed by the Nomenclature Section of the International Botanical Congress. Its task is to discuss and vote on proposals concerning conservation & rejection of fungal names, as well as consider proposals to modify the International Code of Nomenclature for algae, fungi, and plants with respect to fungal names.
The Nomenclature Committee for Fungi (NCF) has at present 18 members.
Those with nomenclatural problems are encouraged to contact the members for advice. If you find any particular fungal name that requires protection, it is recommended that you publish a proposal either to conserve that name or to reject an undesirable name, possibly in collaboration with a member of the committee. All current proposal PDFs can be downloaded at no cost from http://www.ingentaconnect.com/content/iapt/tax

Actions taken at the 2011 Melbourne Congress are listed by McNeill & Turland in Taxon 60: 1495–1497, 2011 and those pertaining directly to fungi by Norvell in Mycotaxon 116: 481–490, 2011 [http://dx.doi.org/10.5248/116.481]. The new edition of the International Code of Nomenclature for algae, fungi, and plants (the Melbourne Code) is currently in press; announcements as to its availability will be made in Taxon.
