Pp. 232; 34 full page plates (10 are line-drawings and 24 are black-and-white photographs). Gray printed cloth-backed stiff wrappers, lettered in black on the spine and front cover, lg 8vo (9 5/16 x 6 1/2 inches). Bibliotheca Mycologica band 38. The species covered in this work are better known as clavarias. However, the genus nomen Ramaria has priority being first proposed in 1790. This genus is very large having some 200-300 species. Species diversity has been increased using new diagnostic characters based on microscopic analyses. This work began with fieldwork in 1964 collecting clavariaceous species in western Washington. It later resulted in a Ph.D. degree on the Ramaria of Western Washington. This monograph presents the results of that research. This volume is from the private research collection of University of Michigan mycologist Alexander H. Smith with his signature on the top of the front wrapper.
