  • Lorelei Norvell. 1987.
    Sparassis - Things may be looking up, but not this mushroom hunter (The Regular Column). Mushroom, The Journal 5(4): 26-28.
    CONTENTS: The author covers the differences between the tree-dwelling Hericium and the trunk-hiding Sparassis. "I may be one of the select few who knows (or even cares to know) that our western Sparassis radicata is more properly greeted in Latin with Sparassis crispa. I even know that the eastern Sparassis crispa (or S. herbstii) now bears the proper appellation of Sparassis spathulata. Some of you Sparassis finders out there might find all these names confusing. I don't. What I find confusing is finding Sparassis."

  • Lorelei Norvell. 1987.
    Summer mushrooming can be special (The Regular Column). Mushroom, The Journal 5(3): 22-25.
    CONTENTS: The University of Kansas Russian Summer Institute introduces the author to butterfly weed, poison ivy, and Agaricus in a cemetery. "The previous week we had been trapped indoors by a spectacular series of summer thunderstorms. These thunderstorms, responsible for developing that oppressive humidity known only to Amazonian jungles and the American Midwest, had activated the subterranean mycelial strands (about which I still knew nothing) so that an immense fairy ring of white mushrooms had bolted out onto the meadow floor." List of Agaricus synonymies. Cartoons. (See also Projects: Agaric Taxonomy and Nomenclature)
  • Lorelei Norvell. 1987.
    You can rise above morels to all the rainbow colors (The Regular Column). Mushroom, The Journal 5(2): 13-15.
    CONTENTS: An introduction to the colorful world of Ascomycetes, with a list of species synonymies. "In a burst of realistic fervor, the good Doctor Phillips had recognized the previous evening that mycology students tend to view spring as an ideal time to ignore the tedium of taxonomy and to launch forth instead on the ultimate romantic quest: The Search for the Holy Morel." Species discussed include Sarcoscypha coccinea, Geopyxis carbonaria, Anthracobia melaloma, Peziza domiciliana, Aleuria aurantia, Caloscypha fulgens, Scutellinia scutellata, Otidea leporina, Bisporella citrina, Tarzetta catinus, Microglossum viride, Chlorociboria aeruginascens, Sarcosphaera coronaria, Lachnum virgineum, and Plectania nannfeldtii. Cartoons.

  • Lorelei Norvell. 1987.
    A Romp through Lepiota (The Regular Column). Mushroom, The Journal 5(1): 14-16.
    CONTENTS: An introduction to Lepiota sensu lato and a list of the segregate genera into which they have been placed. "The name Lepiota (from the Latin "lepis" meaning "scaled") refers to a genus in which there is no one single feature that differentiates its gaggle of cheerfully cohabiting species from those parceled out into other less cheerful genera."
