Timothy J. Baroni, Biological Sciences Department, had three peer-reviewed papers published recently. The first, titled “Towards a better understanding of Tetrapyrgos (Basidiomycota, Agaricales: New species, type studies, and phylogenetic inferences)” was published in late 2015 in Phytotaxa. It was co-authored by Amy Honan and Dennis Desjardin of San Francisco State University, and Brian Perry, California State University East Bay. One of the new species came from Baroni’s National Science Foundation (NSF) funded biodiversity work in the Greater Antilles, from the island of Puerto Rico. Two more recent papers came out in mid 2016, one with co-authors Juan Luis Mata, University of South Alabama, Clark Ovrebo, University of Central Oklahoma, and Karen Hughes, University of Tennessee. “New Species of Neotropical Rhodocollybia” was published in Mycotaxon. The new species were discovered during Baroni’s NSF-funded work in the Dominican Republic. The article “Rhodocybe tugrulii (Agaricales, Entolomataceae), a New Species from Turkey and Estonia Based on Morphological and Molecular Data, and a New Combination in Clitocella (Entolomataceae)” was published in Phytotaxa. It was co-authored with Alfredo Vizzini, University of Turin, Italy, Ertugrul Sesli, Karadeniz Technical University, Turkey, Vladimír Antonín, Moravian Museum, Czech Republic, and Irja Saar, University of Tartu, Estonia. Baroni was invited to contribute to the research on this new taxon because of his numerous publications on Rhodocybe globally and because he was a co-author of the newly erected genus Clitocella, now being recognized by fungal systematists.
