Trudell Tricholoma Study

Steve Trudell and several other researchers have recently released a study of Tricholoma species in BC and the US Pacific Northwest.  Steve has made the paper available to SVIMS members. You can download/view the pdf by clicking on the cover.

This is an imporant study.  Many of the Trichs that we thought were in this area have turned out not to be the same species as the European names they were first given.
