This is the third volume in Geoffrey Kibby’s excellent series on Mushrooms and Toadstools of Britain & Europe. It is identical in format to volume one and volume two with species accounts being illustrated with paintings, principally to highlight important characters that are sometimes difficult to ascertain from a photograph. The book is also unique in illustrating microscopic features next to each painting.
Mushrooms and Toadstools of Britain & Europe Volume 3 forms part of a now proposed 4 volume series on Mushrooms and Toadstools of Britain and Europe, and is the second volume to deal with the gilled fungi, the agarics. All the volumes include both common as well as rare and occasionally found examples, with a bias to including those not found in other field guides or new to science. As Geoffrey himself recommends, the books also work well used in conjunction with complementary reference works that have good keys, such as Fungi of Temperate Europe and Fung Nordica (currently out of print)
Families covered in volume 3: Agaricaceae (continued from volume 1), Psathyrellaceae, Mythicomycetaceae, Galeropsidaceae, Strophariaceae, Hymenogastraceae and Cortinariaceae
With many thousands of just the larger basidiomycetes in Britain alone to choose from, it has become obvious that to include a good representation of species, as in the previous volumes, a fourth volume would be needed. Volume 4 will allow completion of something like 98% of those gilled fungi known to date. This final volume will also include an addendum of species added to the British list since the publication of the first three volumes.
Families to be covered in volume 4: Bolbitaceae, Crepidotaceae, Inocybaceae, Tubariaceae, Macrocystidiaceae and Entolomataceae
