Russulae in the Montane and Subalpine Belts of the Tatra Mountains
Ronikier A. & Adamčík S. (200X) Russulae in the Montane and Subalpine Belts of the Tatra Mountains (Western Carpathians).
Sydowia 61 (1): 53–78
We present 36 species of Russula collected over the last ten years in the Tatra Mountains. Fourteen species are reported from the area for the first time, six are new to Poland and two are new to Slovakia. Two rare species, R. roseipes and R. sapinea, are described in detail and illustrated. Micromorphological variability of several other species is briefly discussed. Ecological preferences of the fungi are analysed and compared with the data available in the literature, and a group of mountain species is distinguished. The composition of Russulae known from the Tatra Mountains is compared with that of other mountain regions of Europe.
