About "The Fungal and Lichen Collections at the Herbarium Marburgense"



The Collection

MB Herb. A. Henssen MB Tuber aestivum MB Mycena galericulata The Fungal and Lichen Collections at the Herbarium Marburgense (MB) comprises more than 90,000 herbarium specimens. The core of the lichen collections are the specimens brought together by Aino Henssen. This collection includes the type material of a number of lichens described by her and is originating from various locations all over the world. Herbert Alfred McCullough deposited his collection of lichens from Alabama here. An important collection of hypogeous fungi originates from Rudoph Hesse covering major parts of the material studied in his monograph “Die Hypogäen Deutschlands” (1890–1894). Recent fungal collections originate from staff activities in Central Europe, Kenya, Costa Rica, Macedonia, Turkmenistan and Yunnan (SW-China). The agarics are in the focus of current projects, especially the genera Mycena and Tricholoma.

The Data Project and Service

Henssen and those fungal specimens which are currently subject of scientific or curatorial activities on-site. "The Fungal and Lichen Collections at MB" uses Diversity Workbench components. The taxonomy and nomenclature follows LIAS names and Index Fungorum, respectively.
