| Projects | Inocybe |


We estimate the number of species in Finland to be over 150. They are ectomycorrhizal fungi and many of them might be important in the early stages of tree growth. They occur in whole Finland, also in fells above the tree line. Inocybe is taxonomically difficult group and many species are still undescribed. The aim of this project is to study the taxonomy of Inocybe species and produce DNA barcodes for as many species as possible.
