This blog is about all things mycological, it is great for small articles that don't need to go into the member's reports section. Anyone who has signed up as a user of this website can post here.

A note from Jerry - Currently (Nov. 2012) all the entries here are mine. Don't let this put you off adding entries. I use this site to make available work I don't intend to publish (in this form at least) and which otherwise wouldn't be widely available but which might be of interest. The entries are not peer reviewed so please also use the feedback facility to stimulate discussion.

Mycological Notes 42: A phylogenetic study of NZ wax-caps

Submitted by cooperj on Wed, 14/04/2021 - 8:13pm

FUNNZ 2021 Colloquium Abstract: New Zealand wax-caps are distinctive and frequently  observed fungi described in the genera Hygrophorus, Gliophorus, Humidicutis, Hygrocybe and ‘Camarophyllus’. They are especially common in wetter regions and in non-mycorrhizal forests. The number of described species has increased since Greta Stevenson’s initial survey in 1962, but their phylogenetic relationships have remained unstudied, and there has been no revision of the group since Egon Horak’s monograph in 1990 (which included 57 taxa).
