where to go first, Africa or South America. But I definitely will go there. My stays in the U.S., in Australia and Asia was so fascinating for me that I cannot confine myself to Europe anymore :)
I guess crust fungi are VERY POORLY KNOWN in Bolivia.

Collecting in Bolivia is open to anyone, though certain areas (namely national parks) require permits. Depositing and working with herbarium staff has largely come about as a matter of establishing a network of relationships over the course of several return trips. I have Larry Evans to thank for the introduction. I’m hoping that my time spent in country will lay the groundwork many as much outside collaboration as the herbarium can withstand. The barren shelves of poorly documented specimens need all the help they can get.

But on Mycobank

are in most cases good pics of the micro features of Corticiaceae whereas the pyrenomycetes have no lobby as it seems :)

That’s the problem!

I have no adaption for taking micros. All I can provide are those short descriptions about prominent features.
I know Daniel and will be joining him one day.
Where you stay is there any possibility to also partake?

sort of

I will be in Bolivia from mid-January to mid-April. Larry Evans and Daniel Winkler’s latest mushroaming tour is scheduled for late January/early February. I will be only be present for the Madidi collecting component of their itinerary.

any chance we’ll get to see photomicrographs of of the major diagnostic characteristics of these crusts? many of these appear to be first records on the site and (with ample caching) will be the first photos of the species on google images. would be swell to have them be comprehensive enough to aid others in their own identification efforts.

Well, many of course.

First of all, still something like the Bible (at least for Europe) is Ryvarden/ Eriksson’s eight volumes “Corticiaceae of Northern Europe”, then we have Krieglsteiner “Pilze von Baden Württemberg 1” (in German), Jülich “Nichtblätterpilze” (also in German), Berniccia “Corticiaceae” and then there are as with every other group of fungi miscellaneous bits here and there strewn all over the published jungles.
BTW, are you one of those who are going to Bolivia? I am intending to do so next year or the year following.

thanks for the crusts, Gerhard
