This is the first attempt at a revision of McNabb's 1972 treatment of Laccaria in New Zealand using information from recent documented and sequenced collections. The indigenous species appear to be more host specific than previously recognised and the names applied to introduced taxa needed updating from McNabb's treatment. Jerry Cooper

These are a number of ‘bookeeping’ combinations, formally published in IndexFungorum, necessary because phyolegentic data show the current genus assignments to be incorrect. In addition to the phylogenetic evidence the morphological evidence has been checked by examining material in PDD.
Here is some basic data for New Zealand species of Russula, together with a preliminary key.
Pat Leonard and I have been working on a revision of New Zealand species of Russula, Lactifluus and Lactarius for a number of years. That work is close to completion and a manuscript describing the new species is in preparation. We are conscious the work has taken much longer than expected, and so we present a trial key here.

This is a long and low resolution PDF file of a phylogenetic tree of the main agaric groups. I used the data extracted from GenBank used in this publication: Matheny PB et al (2006) Major clades of Agaricales: a multi-locus phylogenetic overview. Mycologia, 98: 982–995. I generated a Maximum Likelihood tree using 18s (274 sequences), LSU (389 sequences), ITS1-5.8-ITS2 (389 sequences), RPB1 (147 sequences), and RPB2 (138 sequences).
Mycological Notes 26: Draft Key to amyloid-spored group of New Zealand Mycena species and closely allied genera
This is a very preliminary attempt to enumerate some of the New Zealand species of Mycena.

Pat Leonard and I describe three new species of foetid Gymnopus in New Zealand
A sequence analysis of a Coprosma leaf spot, and a Sea Stcok leaf spots, produced some intruiging results.
This is a copy of a presentation I gave at the 2013 Matawai Foray Colloquium. It includes snippets of results from analsysing sequence data generated from FUNNZ collections over the last few years. It includes notes on some introduced and native groups of Boletes and Agarics.
