New Checklist of British Agarics and Boleti

The 1960 checklist of mushrooms and toadstools consisted of three parts:

Part I: the checklist
Part II: (PDO) lists the genus changes and provides accounts of several genera and many species. A very useful paper in its day.
Part II: (F.B.H.) is similar but much shorter.

By current thinking we have more then twice as many species as recognised in 1960.
