Notes onPsathyrella dunensis (Coprinaceae)

  • 27 Accesses


Psathyrella dunensis Kits van Waveren, so far only known from the type locality in the Netherlands, was found in E. Austria and is more fully described. New information about its macro- and microscopical characters, ecology and distribution is provided and discussed. The carpophores vary more in size and surface structure than hitherto observed. Its habitat comprises riparian forests and other sandy soils like e.g. sand-dunes.
