Lannoy, G. & Estades A.

Les Bolets

Keys to families, subfamilies, multi-access keys using various groups of characters. The species accounts are then embedded in classical dichotomous family keys, with drawings of microscopy etc.

A useful modern treatment from the authors who introduced us to so many new spp of Leccinum.

Text in French.

Volume 6
Pages 163
Comments and Corrigenda The colour plates were re-issued with much better printing.
Illustrations Line drawings in the text, 6 colour plates at the rear.
Identify In the Hand (also useful to examine under a Compound Microscope).
Specimen Prep. Cut flesh for colour changes. Microscopy needed in some sections, esp Xerocomus and Leccinum.
Difficulty Xerocomus and Leccinum, in the modern sense, require careful examination.
News Subsequent DNA work on Leccinum has shown the majority of new species introduced by Lannoy & Estades to be merely habitat-induced variations.
