Taxonomic Coverage

We have an excellent, well-documented representation of native Basidiomycetes with a particularly strong collection of the Russulales, as well as the genera Hebeloma, Agaricus and Suillus. Our strengths include gasteroid collections from the prairies and grasslands of Colorado and especially noteworthy colletions of “snowbank” fungi. Many rare cup fungi stand out in our extensive Ascomycete collection. Our collections are supported by an extensive literature collection. Aproximately 250 species of Colorado Mycomycetes are also included.

Family Agaricaceae, Strophariaceae, Tricholomataceae, Russulaceae
