Product Overview

The family Hygrophoraceae (Agaricales) includes some of the most beautiful examples of gilled fungi. Many species are brilliantly coloured and their shapes are exquisitely symmetrical. For this reason, species are frequently noticed in the field. Most terrestrial habitats support one or more species of Hygrophoraceae, and their abundance and diversity increases with the availability of moisture. Suitable habitats include all types of forest and woodland, as well as grassland, heath, swamps and sand-dunes.

This authoritative account, richly illustrated with colour photographs and line drawings, documents 92 species and infra-specific taxa of the four Australian genera: Hygrophorus, Camarophyllopsis, Humidicutis and Hygrocybe. A detailed introduction to the family is followed by identification keys to genera and species, along with comprehensive descriptions of each taxon.

This volume provides:

Authoritative identification keys for this attractive group
Full descriptions and synonymy for each species
Habitat information and a distribution map for each species
Numerous superb colour photos, as well as line illustrations of most species
