    CONTENTS: A general discussion on the nomenclatural history of the shiitake, Lentinula edodes, with a comprehensive nomenclator and cartoons summarizing the changes. "Thus we can all intone "Lentinula edodes" with grace and courtesy. (Whining is optional." (See also Projects: Agaric Taxonomy and Nomenclature)

    CONTENTS: This paper, based on Norvell's presentation at the 1994 Corvallis conference, presents the context, objectives, methods and rationale, unique considerations, current status, and references pertinent to the Oregon Mycological Society's long-term experimental study designed to assess the impact of sporocarp removal upon chanterelle abundance and biomass.

    The agaric genus Phaeocollybia in western North America: New Species. Abstract in Inoculum 47(3): 24
    ABSTRACT: Phenetic analyses of molecular, morphological, and ecological data sets support the existence of several new Phaeocollybia species in British Columbia, Washington, Oregon, and California. Co-migrating fragments produced by digesting PCR-amplified DNA from 160 representative basidiomes with 9 enzymes comprised a RFLP-based character set. Macro- and microcharacters - drawn from both recent collections and published descriptions of 62 known species - and environmental characters based on recent field observations were scored, coded, and respectively grouped into morphological and ecological sets. The three subset trees were then compared and pruned. Results from cluster and multivariate analyses of a combined character set support the existence of 25-30 PNW species. Types for 8 new species have been selected from cluster-centers, and circumscriptions of all PNW taxa have been expanded to represent a full intraspecific continuum. Morphologically distinct new species have continued to be discovered, with each new field season, implying the scope of this distinctive once "small" genus will continue to expand.

    Is Cantharellus formosus being commercially harvested? Abstract in Inoculum 47(3): 30.
    CONTENTS: Cantharellus formosus was described by EJH Corner in 1966 from a collection made on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada in 1938. Subsequent treatment of the species has been checkered. it has been listed both as a possibly rare, old-growth forest indicator species in Forest Ecosystem Management Team (FEMAT) reports, and as a commercially harvested chanterelle in western North America. In 1995 the type locality was pinpointed, fresh topotype specimens were obtained, and molecular analyses using RFLP data were conducted. Comparison of topotype specimens with commercially harvested chanterelles in Canada and the Pacific Northwest USA and chanterelles from the pioneering Oregon Mycological Society's Chanterelle Study Plots will be given in a status report on this research.
