Summary: An all species analysis of the puffballs from California using macromorphology, micromorphology, and SEM. This study was focused on new collections and herbarium material from UCB, SFSU and HSU. As well, DNA sequence analysis will be used to illuminate ambiguous groups from California. Please send any puffballs (dried please) with location and detailed notes to Stephanie Jarvis. Contact her @ This will be published and available soon!

Here is a list of what is being published. If you think you have something other than on this list from CA, it might be very interesting! (Some of the names have updates, and two are new species. Vascellum is being dissolved and all 3 species from CA have been moved to Lycoperdon. Handkea is not recognized as a genus either.)
