- CONTENTS: Book Review comparing fungal biodiversity in three
different European forests across an air pollution gradient.
"This compact volume contains the results of a well-designed
ecological investigation of the impact of air pollution on
macromycetes. The authors present their experimental design
and analyses in succinct, straightforward fashion. In so doing,
they have provided an excellent model for future research…
The book is highly recommended for anyone contemplating a
similar study, for those interesting in tracking the effects
of man on the environment, and for anyone interested in the
progress being made in ecological mycology today."

Pleurogala. Mycotaxon 48: 371-380.
- ABSTRACT: Latex production by Bondarzewia mesenterica
is documented. Reportedly positive amyloid reactions of basidiospores
of Heterobasidion annosum are refuted. Taxonomic implications
of both observations are discussed. Pleurogala gen. nov.
is proposed for Lactarius sec. Panuoidei. ALSO
NOTED: (i) First report of latex by Bondarzewia mesenterica
(=B. montana); (ii) new combinations: Pleurogala
panuoides, P. uyedae, P. campinensis, P.
igapoensis; (iii) discussion on the phylogeny of Russulales.

- Further Observations on the genus Phaeocollybia.
Abstract in Inoculum 44(2): 51-52.
- ABSTRACT: Field work from British Columbia to California
since 1991 has resulted in extensive collections (370) of
14 described and several undescribed species of Phaeocollybia
(Agaricales, Cortinariaceae). Pacific Northwest species exhibit
a preference of coastal old-growth coniferous forests. Perceived
rarity may be explained by patchy distribution within general
habitats, with several species often fruiting together in
an area. Excavations have revealed two different growth patterns:
basidiomes arise either in a fasciculate "starburst" or successively
from existing pseudorhizae. Microscopic tibiiform outpocketings
on the base of the pseudorhizae have been confirmed as a generic
feature; these processes have also been found on mycelia,
stipe fibrils, and pileus scales. Velate primordia, uncharacteristic
of the genus, have been discovered in P. californica.
Other discoveries include recognition of two pseudorhizal
types and the artifact nature of apical outgrowths on clavate
cheilocystidia. Variability of clamp connections in certain
species complexes is the subject of further study. (See also

- Some fungi of Pacific Northwest old growth forests. Abstract
in Inoculum 44(2): 25.
- ABSTRACT: For several years we have been studying the macrofungi
of True Fir-Hemlock, Sitka Spruce-Hemlock and Douglas Fir-Hemlock
old-growth forests in western Washington State. Basic to this
study are the compilation of fungus species by forest type
and the phenologies (fruiting periods) of individual species.
Also, we are determining which macrofungi are characteristic
of old-growth forests and whether or not there are rare or
endangered taxa. This preliminary report will include species
lists by forest type, present basic phenological patterns,
and indicate some of the potentially rare and perhaps endangered
species. (See also Projects: Northwest Forest Plan, Biodiversity)

- Mycena gaultheri rediscovered after 50 years.
- ABSTRACT: Examination of recent collections of Mycena
gaultheri confirms that there are significant taxonomic
features separating it from members of sections Polydelphia
and Basidipedes; therefore a new section of Mycena
Testudini is proposed. Range extension from Washington
to Oregon is noted. ALSO INCLUDED -- (i) Redescription of
rare mushroom; (ii) discussion of impact of biodiversity surveys
on classification. (See also Projects: Agaric Taxonomy and

- Phaeocollybia in western Canada. Mycotaxon
- ABSTRACT: The first records of Phaeocollybia from
western Canada are documented along with additional eastern
Canadian collections. Both P. carmanahensis sp. nov.
[now considered a synonym of P. oregonensis] and a
form of P. kauffmanii [now recognized as P. redheadii]
were discovered in old growth forest in the Carmanah
Valley, Vancouver Island, British Columbia. Taxonomic problems
in the P. kauffmanii complex in both the eastern and
western United States are discussed. The presence of minute
capitate cystidioid elements on the pseudorhizae is reconfirmed
as a generic feature. ALSO INCLUDED -- (i) new eastern Canadian
records from New Brunswick and Nova Scotia; (ii) SEM photos
of spores. (See also Projects: Phaeocollybia)
