The CMMF fungarium featured in a repertoire of Quebec cortinarius
An important report on Quebec cortinarius has just been published (J. Landry et al. Janv. 2021) presenting over 1000 collections of specimen of this genus, including a large portion from the CMMF Fungarium which were sequenced and submitted to a phylogenetic analysis. The results of these analyses have revealed the existence of 363 species including 263 described species and 100 previously unknown. This is a first step, but further investigations will be necessary to completely understand the species that are part of this, the largest genus of the agarics in Quebec.
The 252-page repertoire includes of a photo of every species and is available in open access on the Mycoquébec blog.
