The genus Clitocybe (Agaricales) in Fennoscandia

  title={The genus Clitocybe (Agaricales) in Fennoscandia},
  author={Harri Harmaja},
A taxonomic revision is made of the agaric genus Clitocybe (Fr. [...] Key Result Information on the cytology (e.g. the chromosome number) of one species is given. Some macroscopical, sporal, anatomical, ecological and other characters as well as certain responses to ultr~violet light are shown to be ± uniform throughout Clitocybe, and may thus be diagnostic of the genus. Considerable attention is paid to the habitat (substrate, forest site type , relation to lime content of ground, relation to human influence…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
A revision of the generic limit between Clitocybe and Lepista
HARMAJA, H . 1974: A rev1swn of the generic limit between Clitocybe and Lepi&ta. Kars.tenia 14: 82-92. On the basis of various spore characters, some already no1ed but partly neglected (e.g.Expand
Singerella n. gen., a separate genus for Clitocybe hydrogramma
The most important distinguishing character of the section Bulluliferae is the presence of peculiar vesicles in the hyphae of the epicutis, here called »intercalary dermatcchrysocystidia», which are lacking in the other speci•es of Clitocybe, and are probably also absent from the remainder of the Agaricales.

Basidiospore form in the British species of Lepista and Ripartites (Agaricales)
Nine species of Lepista are included, a small genus with an essentially temperate distribution, although also occurring in the tropics, and Ripartites P. G. Smith, a closely related genus which produces an olivaceous brown spore print. Expand
Type studies on Agaricales described as Clitocybe and Omphalina
The holotypes or type material of 17 species and one form described as Clitocybe (Fr.) Staude and one species described as Omphalina Que'!. have been scrutinized. All but one of the taxon namesExpand
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
Trichocybe, a new genus for Clitocybe puberula (Agaricomycetes, Agaricales)
According to the present analysis, also Clitocybe phaeophthalma seems to represent an independent evolutive line in the clitocyboid fungi, which suggests adopting the genus Singerocybe Harmaja for this taxon as well as similar ones. Expand
Atractosporocybe, Leucocybe and Rhizocybe: three new clitocyboid genera in the Tricholomatoid clade (Agaricales) with notes on Clitocybe and Lepista
Three new genera of clitocyboid fungi are proposed, characterized by the presence of conspicuous rhizomorphs, while Atractosporocybe presents long fusiform spores and Leucocybe includes two whitish species in the former section Candicantes of Clitocybe, but no relevant shared characteristic feature was detected.

gen . nov . and Paralepista ( Basidiomycota , Agaricales )
Paralepistopsis, a new genus in Agaricales, is proposed for the rare toxic species, Clitocybe amoenolens from North Africa (Morocco) and southern and southwestern Europe and C. acromelalga from AsiaExpand
New species of Clitocybe and Crepidotus (Agaricales) from eastern Honshu, Japan
Three new species of Agaricales from eastern Honshu, Japan, are described and illustrated and has smooth, ellipsoid basidiospores, subfusiform-pedicellate to irregularly cylindrical cheilocystidia, and abundant clamp connections. Expand


The ‘stercorarius group’ of the genus Coprinus
The ultrasonic desintegrator helped to explain the nature of the black dots on the spores of C. narcoticus and C. laanii, which are believed to be caused by the wrinkling of the perisporial sac. Expand

The matter under consideration is a part of my research including the larger fungi in arctic and subarctic regions and Mitrula collections from trips to Spitsbergen in 1966 and northeastern Canada in 1967 are taken into consideration. Expand
