HARMAJA, H. 1976: A further revision of the generic limit between Lepista and Clitocybe. Karstenia 15 :13-15. The genus Clitocybe (Fr.) Staude (Agaricales) is amended to comprise only species with cyanophobic spore wall. Species with cyanophilic spore wall and hitherto included in Clitocybe are transferred to Lepista (Fr.) W. G. Smith, which genus becomes amended as to include species with strongly or weakly cyanophilic spore wall, with collapsed or normal spore walls in mounts of dried… Expand
Notes on Clitocybe s. lato (Agaricales)
Diagnostic characters of Clitocybe are discussed; among the less known ones are: (i) a proportion of the detached spores adhere in tetrads in microscopic mounts, (ii) the spore wall is cyanophilic, and (iii) the mycelium is capable of reducing nitrate. Expand
Amylolepiota, Clavicybe and Cystodermella, new genera of the Agaricales
A new genus, Clavicybe Harmaja, is described for a group of species with inamyloid spores segregated from Cystoderma Fayod and 12 new nomenclatural combinations in Cystodermella are made. Expand
Lepista polygonarum and Prunulus lammiensis, two new combinations in the Agaricales
Mycena lammiensis Harmaja (Mycenaceae) is transferred to Prunulus Murrill , a segregate genus comprising species around M pura (Pers. : Fr.) Kumm, as Pr unulus lammienis (Harmaja) Harmaja. Expand
The walls of the spores and basidia of Tricholoma foun to be cyanophilic
In all species examined in the present study, also the basidial wall, including that of the sterigmata, proved weakly cyanophilic, apparently the first report of cyanophile basidia in the order Agaricales. Expand
Pseudoclitocybaceae fam. nov. (Agaricales, Tricholomatineae), a new arrangement at family, genus and species level
The analysis of ITS rDNA as well as a combined dataset including 18S and 28S rDNA, tef1 and rpb2 data, support significantly a shared monophyletic origin of the genera Pseudoclitocybe, Musumecia and Pogonoloma, and the species Clitocybe alexandri and C. harperi. Expand
Spore Ornamentation in the Tricholomataceae I.
The spores of 25 taxa of agarics in the Tricholomataceae were studied with use of the scanning-electron microscope and a variation of surfaces is illustrated, and the characteristics of Melanoleuca (Tricholoma) robinsoniae proved to be those of a Clitocybe also. Expand
Analyse taxinomique d'une espèce toxique: Clitocybe amoenolens Malençon
A fungus responsible for several erythromelalgic-type poisonings in the Maurienne valley (Savoie, France) is reported as Clitocybe amoenolens Malencon, based on the comparison between basidiomata collected in Maurienne, Malen Con's original material, and some collections from southern French Alps.

Water-soluble polysaccharides excreted by mycelium of higher fungi: Relationship with taxonomy and physiology
Production of water-soluble polysaccharides from mycelium was determined in 347 species of higher fungi belonging to a variety of taxonomic groups and appeared to be a feature of the lignicolous species, whereas the soil-saprophytes and mycorrhizal taxa generally do not produce poly Saccharides.

The genus Clitocybe (Agaricales) in Fennoscandia
A taxonomic revision is made of the agaric genus Clitocybe (Fr.) Staude in Fennoscandia, the material comprising 3220 specimens, and some macroscopical, sporal, anatomical, ecological and other characters as well as certain responses to ultr~violet light are shown to be ± uniform throughout Clitocytes, and may thus be diagnostic of the genus.
