Abstract

Comparisons were made of the species composition and distribution of Amanita, Laccaria, Lactarius, and genera in the Boletaceae reported from temperate North America, southern Neotropical Quercus forests (Costa Rica-Colombia), the Lesser Antilles, tropical South America excluding montaine Colombia, and temperate South America. The examined fungi showed discrete rather than cosmopolitan distribution ranges, with little overlap in species composition between these different geographic regions. Potential endemism was high in Neotropical oak forests, with 30-100% of the species in each of the genera studied not reported from outside the region. -from Authors
