Notes on Taxonomy: [Edit]

Besides the book on the veiled species of Hebeloma by Smith, Evenson & Mitchel there is only ONE other publication devoted to Hebeloma. An excellent little book by Jan Vesterholt with 45 species that includes keys, full descriptions, microdrawings and a nice color photo of each species. Hesler was close to publishing a monograph for North America at the time of his death, but failed to finish it. It has 254 species and varieties with 101 descriptions of new species. No photos and sadly, no microdrawings, but it does have keys and full descriptions.
