there are some resources out there for Pluteus

for section Celluloderma the article by Drew Minnis and Walter Sundberg in North American Fungi:


for section Pluteus the most recent morphological overview of the group is from 1995:

Banerjee, P. & Sundberg, W.J. (1995). The Genus Pluteus Section Pluteus (Pluteaceae, Agaricales) in the Midwestern United States. Mycotaxon 53: 189-246. you can find it online here http://www.cybertruffle.org.uk/cyberliber/

The taxonomy of Pluteus cervinus, P. petasatus and all their satellite species is currently under study and not stable yet, hopefully soon we’ll have more resources for these.

and then Pluteus sect. Hispidoderma is a whole different can of worms…

I may be asking the wrong guy if DNA is the only resort but is there a macro key for Pluteus in E. N. America. I have the one for the Pac. NW but could use one for my area.

the white ones in this group are almost impossible to tell apart without DNA
