I’m doing my thesis for my degree as a Biologist. My thesis director is Dr. Guzman and I am working with the genus Scleroderma. Basically it is a taxonomic review. Besides I have to discuss and clarify the taxonomic status between Scleroderma and Veligaster.
Almost all fungi that I shot are deposited in the Fungal Collection of the Instituto de Ecologia, Xalapa.

Very best,
