People involved in the study of Russulales:
Jorinde Nuytinck (b. 1978) studied the complex group of Lactarius deliciosus for her PhD. She is currently working as an assistant professor at the mycology lab of Mieke Verbeken and combines a morphological and molecular approach to study the species delimitations and phylogenetic relationships in the genus Lactarius. Bird watching is another passion of this young mycologist.

[Lactarius cocosmus Van de Putte & De Kesel sp. nov. is described from Uapaca woodlands in Togo. The species has a remarkable coconut-smell, which is typical for some European and North American Lactarius species but is observed here for the first time in a milkcap from Africa. Unpublished molecular data show that the species represents a new phylogenetic group for the African continent.]
