New Species to Colorado Discovered

Because identification of mushrooms is so difficult, it is believed that only a very small percentage of existing species are even known to science.  Hence, identification by visiting experts is critical for any herbarium to determine if previously collected specimens might have been misidentified, or to update names that have been changed.  Dr. Bates has extensively studied the Gastromycetes (puffballs and their allies) in desert areas of Arizona and has...
