something all field mycologists who see it will want to have on the bench near their microscopes when making identifications. All species are illustrated with one or more photographs and information on morphology, ecology and distribution within temperate Europe is given. The second, which takes us to 1,715 pages, includes all the rest: brackets, puffballs, jelly fungi, coral fungi, hydnoids, cup fungi and truffles, with a nod at rusts and smuts, mildews, lichens and slime moulds (and, yes, the authors are well aware that the latter are not fungi).
