Manfred Binder

Terry Henkel and colleagues have just described Binderoboletus, a new genus of boletes from Guyana, which is named in honor of Manfred Binder, a former post-doc in our lab and a great expert on systematics of Boletales. Very nice, and well deserved.

Basidiomata of new species and distribution records from Guyana. A. Binderoboletus segoi (holotype). B. Guyanaporus albipodus (holotype). C. Singerocomus inundabilis (Henkel 9199). D. Singerocomus rubriflavus (holotype), dorsal view. E. Ventral view. Bars = 10 mm.
