"fide" is used when you are making a claim on the basis of someone else having made it whom you trust. I guess if the claim is dubious, or you are neutral as to its reliability, then you wouldn't use it.

 I just looked back on some old 2011 discussion on ' sec. '
 to see the
 justification for the jargon.
 This abbreviation is just so obscure, and non intuitive for
 the non
 in-group, and has terrible readability.
 In addition to ' sensu ' instead, did anyone have a good
 reason for not
 using the simple ' fide ' ?
