Henderson, D.M., Orton, P.D. & Watling, R., 1969

Agarics and Boleti - Introduction

The first volume of the British Fungus Flora. Includes an artificial key to genera, but this is rather dated now after numerous changes to genera since this was published.

The most useful part is the colour chart which has been standard among British mycologists ever since.

Publisher Her Majesty's Stationery Office (HMSO)
Volume 1
Pages 58
Comments and Corrigenda The cream series (Russula spore print colours) are poor. A is grey - use the card instead and B onwards are not dark enough. The other colour are well chosen for mycology.
Illustrations 4 pages of line drawings at the back.
