A little known species: Russula pseudoromellii

Notes on the etimology of the word "fungi"

An etymological analysis of some terms frequently used in mycology is undertaken. In the dim and distant past fungi were not only valued as a source of food, but they were used to attain altered states of consciousness. Ancient myths reveal deep and hidden meanings related to mushrooms.

New cases of acromelalgic syndrome in Abruzzo

Some recent poisoning cases caused by Clitocybe amoenolens in Abruzzo (Southern Italy) are reported. A synthesis of the current knowledge of the acromelalgic syndrome is given, together with a description of Clitocybe amoenolens and a comparison to the most closely related edible species, i.e. Clitocybe gibba and the species belonging to the Lepista flaccida-complex.

A little known form of Entoloma clypeatum: E. clypeatum f. pallidogriseum

The finding of a rare form of Entoloma clypeatum, viz. E. clypeatum f. pallidogriseum, is reported; colour photographs and a personal description are provided. E. clypeatum f. pallidogriseum could be confused with several other pale-coloured Entoloma species, in particular with E. sepium, but also with E. niphoides, E. moserianum and perhaps E. saundersii.

An uncommon species of Mycena, sect. Filipedes: Mycena rapiolens

A collection of Mycena rapiolens, found in an Italian urban park, is described and illustrated. This rare species is well characterized by a strong a radish-like (raphanoid) odour, and wide hyphae of pilei- and stipitipellis, densely covered with short outgrowths. Its taxonomic position within Mycena sect. Filipedes is discussed and notes on closely related species are given.
