Species of the Genus Russula are some of the commonest fungi that we see in woodlands, often of large size and displaying striking colours. And yet they are also some of the most confusing and difficult to identify of all the fungi. This book seeks to provide an easy to use keying system to help you identify the nearly 160 species to be found in Great Britain.
Each species is fully described, including a further 29 from Continental Europe and Scandinavia which have not yet been found here but might be expected to, and nearly 100 full colour photographs are provided of many of our most interesting species
The new edition of The Genus Russula in Great Britain by Geoffrey Kibby adds some new and improved photographs of species, as well as minor textual changes and improvements in the keys and descriptions. This brings the total of species included to 184 and the number illustrated to 118.
