Example text

Occasionally in these pages English names are given, but most of them are not folk-names, having been coined in an effort to popularise the study of fungi. Many writers of books which aim at a wide appeal, think it wise to criticise the use of Latin names for organisms, as if this were pedantic, even if not cryptic. Doubtless, as a knowledge of the larger fungi becomes more popular, names will be invented by or for those who prefer homely appellations, but myriads of microscopic species are unlikely to have bestowed upon them anything additional to their baptismal names.

These are figured and described in the truffle, with two, three or four warted spores in the ascus (Plate XVIIIc). ” In his search for flowers Micheli discovered the hairs on the edges of the gills of some agarics. These marginal hairs (cystidia) he interpreted as apetalous flowers, a view which seems peculiar to modern minds for they are situated far from where the “seeds” are formed. ” It might have been expected that Micheli’s fascinating studies would have aroused some enthusiasm for fungi, for he showed beyond all doubt that they are entities and not degeneration products.

The derivation of toadstool is obvious, especially when considered in conjunction with toodys hatte, paddocstol (1450), and the modern Scottish and north country paddockstool or puddockstool. ” Clusius states that Genus xiii of his Fungi puniciales (Collybia maculrta) is called Froschen stuel. Ray in Historia says such fungi are called Toads-stools by country people here. A typical toadstool obviously might serve as a resting place for a sedentary batrachian, but it is peculiar that the association is mostly with toads and not with frogs; possibly the explanation is in the old belief that toads were venomous.
