Bolbitiaceae

  • M. H. Zoberi

Abstract

Although the species of this genus are found almost throughout the world, Bolbitius is very little known. The fruit bodies usually grow on dung, soil, and on rotting trunks of wood. The cap is characteristically viscid, plicate-sulcate (as in some species of Coprinus) striate, fragile, the cuticle is cellular; stipe white or whitish, even near the base; gills splitting, after disintegration of the tissue following sporerelease; hymenophoral trama regular, cheilocystidia not abruptly capitate; basidia clavate, sunken and closely packed among the well-developed pseudoparaphyses, forming a paving on the hymenial surface, four-spored; spore-print dull brown; spores smooth, with germ pore, develop evenly over the surface of the gills.
