Content Description top ↑

The generic, specific and intraspecific taxa of heterobasidiomycetous fungi recorded for the Iberian Peninsula (Portugal, Spain) and the Balearic Islands are compiled. For easier consultation the orders, genera and species have been arranged alphabetically and each taxon contains information on nomenclature, chorology and substrates, as well as data on herbaria and, in some instances, additional notes and observations.

El presente catálogo se ha realizado recopilando todos los datos sobre los géneros, especies y subespecies de heterobasidiomicetes publicados de la Península Ibérica (Portugal, España) e Islas Baleares. Para facilitar su consulta, el catálogo se presenta por orden alfabético de órdenes, géneros y especies. Para cada taxon se indican taxonómicos, de nomenclatura y corológicos, así como información del substrato, herbarios donde se encuentra y, en algunos casos, observaciones.

This comprehensive checklist, published in English, is part of the Flora (sic!) Micológica Ibérica project and is intended as a precursor to a future regional monograph of the Portuguese and Spanish heterobasidiomycetes. Rusts and smuts are excluded, as are the heterobasidiomycetous yeasts, but included are all the teleomorphic species in the Atractiellales, Auriculariales, Dacrymycetales, Exobasidiales, Platygloeales, Septobasidiales, Tremellales, and Tulasnellales (all sensu the 1995 edition of Ainsworth & Bisby's Dictionary of the Fungi). The checklist is arranged alphabetically by order, genus, and species, and provides full literature references for each taxon and for the synonyms used in the region, details of type specimens or type localities, distribution by province, details of reported substrata, and a record of herbaria containing voucher collections. Appendices include a list of taxa by province, and a bibliography of the literature surveyed to compile the list.

The checklist will clearly be of value to anyone interested in heterobasidiomycete distribution, not only in the Iberian peninsula but throughout Europe and further afield. Though some critical work has been undertaken (as evidenced in the authorís other papers and in footnotes in the text), the checklist relies substantially on unconfirmed reports and includes a number of highly dubious taxa which require further research. This, presumably, will be the next step in preparing a more thorough, regional mycota. Inevitably, there are also quite a few errors in author citations (the dubious old name Tremella intumescens, for example, should be credited, if that is the right word, to the Englishman J. E. Smith rather than the Norwegian Sommerfelt), and in literature references (particularly old ones), both of which need further attention before a mycota is prepared. There is certainly quite a lot of work still to do. According to the appendix, the best recorded province (Madrid) has 51 heterobasidiomycete species listed, but more than 25 other Iberian provinces have five or fewer. At least this volume should make the task easier, and as such is much to be welcomed.
