Pp. (iii), 124. Original pale green wrappers, lettered in black on the front cover, thick 4to. The Hydnaceae are a family of fungi in the order Cantharellales. Originally the family encompassed all species of fungi that produced basidiocarps (fruit bodies) having a hymenium (spore-bearing surface) consisting of slender, downward-hanging tapering extensions referred to as "spines" or "teeth" whether they were related or not. This artificial but often useful grouping is now more generally called the hydnoid or tooth fungi. In the strict, modern sense, the Hydnaceae are limited to the genus Hydnum and related genera, with basidiocarps having a toothed or poroid hymenium (from Wiki). This volume is from the private research collection of University of Michigan mycologist Alexander H. Smith with his signature on the front wrapper.
