Even though Howard James Banker published the name Etheirodon in 1902 it seems to have remained obscure. This genus is present in Index Fungorum and Mycobank but the species combination was missing (as of November 2016). Banker's genus name was resurrected to serve for Steccherinum fimbriatum because the species has been shown to be well outside of the Steccherinum clade.
