Fungal Diversity Research Number 9:
The Genus Mycena in South-Eastern Australia
The Genus Mycena in South-Eastern Australia is the first book to be published in Australia covering a single Australian mushroom genus. It is a co-publication between Fungal Diversity Press and ABRS.
The book covers 66 species of the mushroom genus Mycena, most of the species being from south-eastern Australia.
Apart from species’ descriptions, the history of the classification of the genus is discussed, as well as the history of the genus in Australia, previous Australian records, and the conservation status of species.
The majority of species of Mycena included in this work proved to be both new to science and endemic to Australia.
