First world monograph of the genera Hohenbuehelia and Resupinatus
(in both Italian and English languages)
• Circa 400 pagine (in lingua italiana con traduzione in inglese di Edmondo Grilli)
• Descrizioni dettagliate e note nomenclaturali e tassonomiche delle 22 specie
di Hohenbuehelia e delle 12 specie di Resupinatus presenti in Europa • Fotografie
a colori in habitat e fotomicrografie a colori dei caratteri microscopici • Chiavi
dicotomiche • Analisi del DNA e studi filogenetici.
In each of the 34 profiles of the monograph, after the name of the taxon and its authors,
are reported the basionym and, where existing, the nomenclatural and taxonomic
synonyms. For each type (holotype, lectotype, epitype and neotype) all typification details
are provided. The above is followed by the original diagnosis and its translation into
Italian and, where necessary, also into English. After the “Etymology” of the specific
epithet, there is the macro- and microscopic description of the taxon, generally, based on
the study of several collections, where the measures of spores, basidia, cheilocystidia
and hyphae represent the averages of the measures of all the collections, type included.
For comparison some relevant microscopic data from the literature are reported. Then
there is the data, both personal and from the literature, relative to habitat, edaphic and
ecological preferences, fruiting period and countries where the taxon has been recorded.
There follows a list of the material studied, including place of collection, type of wood,
substratum, date, legit, herbarium and herbarium number as well as the fundamental
The profile continues with the “Notes”: the taxonomic ones in which are emphasized
the macro- and microscopic characters crucial to a correct determination of the species
dealt with and its separation from close allies, and, where appropriate, the nomenclatural
ones, which recall the “history” of the taxon. The paragraph “Molecular data” anticipates
some of the conclusions resulting from the molecular analysis and reported in the final
chapter of the book.
By way of example, we report the photo in habitat and one of the photomicrographs of
the type species of the two genera treated in this monograph.
