Synopsis Fungorum 47 - Stereoid fungi - A world synopsis


157 pages, published 19. April 2023.

Stereoid fungi is a rather vague term and includes taxa with very different evolutionary background. The scope used in this manual includes species where the basidiocarps have a more or less smooth hymenophore and a distinct pileus on a sessile to stipitate basidiocarp. 

The purpose of the book is to provide a tool for both amateurs and students. Stereoid genera and species are rather easy to recognize in nature and are thus, well adapted for starting a preliminary inventory of the mycota in restricted areas or for making small ecological studies. The provision of useable identification manuals is especially important in the tropical zone where there is an almost total lack of pertinent literature for almost any group of fungi!
