When this work was "begun, it was intended to collect any kind of fleshy fungi(except those of the large and diffi-cult order Pezizales), growing in Vancouver and the immediate vicinity, to identify and classify them, and to record their descriptions. However, when collecting was begun, there proved to be such an abundance of the Agaricaceae that dealing with them alone occupied all the available time. Consequently the subject has been limited, and the title changed from "Fleshy Fungi of Vancouver District" to "Agaricaceae of Vancouver Dist-rict", with an appendix including some miscellaneous fleshy fungi also found here. Fortunately, the season from the first of October to the end of March was comparatively mild, and proved to be real . mushroom weather, The only snowfall of any importance occurred during the Christmas vacation, so collecting was unhampered. Even after the severest cold of the winter, a walk through the woods resulted in the collection of a few of the more resistant Mycenas. Nearly all the species were found right on the Uni-versity campus. There was such an abundance of forms on the campus during the Fall that it was more than one person could do to identify them all, and at the saae time record all tho*~ data concerning them. Thus Stanley Park, which is an excel--ii-lent collecting ground, was left untouched until Spring, and undoubtedly there are numbers of species growing there that have not been included here. In this work 27 genera have been recorded, of which 13 are of the white-spored group, 7 of the ochre-spored group, 4 of the purple-brown spored group, and 3 of the black-spored group. No rosy-spored forms were collected, probably due to the fact that most of them grow during the warmer months. The 2 7 genera comprised in all 64 species, which, according to their spore color are divided as follows: white, 34 species; ochre, 16 species; purple-brown, 11 species; black, 3 species. The various species of llvcena proved to be more t, numerous than fctejsetb.frany other genus, 12 species being describ-ed here, although dt is definitely known that others occur. The species of Clitocvbe came second in number to the Ivlvcenas in the white-spored group. In the ochre-spored group, Cortinarius out-numbered the other genera in the number of species, totalling 3f while Evpholoma led the purple-brown spored forms with 6 species The black-spored forms are comparatively few at this time of the year, and only one species of each black-spored genus was record-ed. METHOD OF WORK. (a) COLLECTING. Collecting was done throughout the time from Oct.1st. to Marxist, on an average of twice a week. Each kind of musii-room was wrapped by itself when collected to protect it, and to - n i -prevent the various kinds from getting mixed up in the vasculum. Observations were made at the time of collection concerning the habit and habitat of the mushroom, and any other details that might help in its identification, such as its odor when fresh-ly picked, or the nature of the pileus, i.e., whether viscid or not. Care was taken to bring in as varied forms as possible, showing the different stages in development. (b) DESCRIPTION. As soon as the mushrooms were collected, they were brought back to the laboratory , and descriptions of the vari-ous species were written immediately, This information was written on individual sheets with the necessary haadings for complete description printed on them. A sample sheet is shown on the next page. In describing the color, an attempt was made to make the descriptions really useful by using standard colors. The color names used are those of "Ridgway's Color Standards and nomenclature",with a few exceptions, which occur in descriptions made earlier in the term. While the specimens were fresh, spore prints were made and fixed permanently by floating on very dilute collodion. Thin sections of the gills were also made, to show the structure of the trama, spores, presence or absence of cystidia and ster-ile cells, and these sections were mounted in a glycerine-eosin mounting fluid, and labelled. In connection with this it was noticed that in some species the cystidia took the eosin stain very deeply compared to the rest of the section, so that they V- - iv-FlELD STUDIES OF MUSHROOMS ^ No. Name ~ Habitat and Habit..

J Sample of the printed sheets which were filled in for each species of mushroom when it was brought into the laboratory, -V-were readily seen; hut in other species they remained clear and colorless. These microscopic slides v;ere kept, and, "being in glycerine, remained in perfect condition for comparison through-out the whole period. Drawings were made ("besides the drawings made with the camera lucida and illustrated on Plates XXIV to XXXI inclusive), to show the spores and cystidia, and measure-ments made of the same, These drawings were filed along with the spore prints and descriptions, each species in a separate folder. As soon as each species was described, it was given a number, the University of B.C. geological Herbarium number, and spore print, drawing, microscopic slide, photograph, nega-tive, dried specimen for the herbarium, and anything else in connection with that particular species was given that number, whether the name of the mushpoom had been ascertained ot not. (<0 PHOTOGRAPHING. Photographs were made of over two-thirds of the species, showing typical specimens. These were made while the plants were fresh, and the morphological characters emphasised in the descriptions are also brought out in the photographs. (d) DRYIITG OP SPECIMENS. In all cases where there were sufficient specimens, a few typical forms were dried. This v/as done on a grating over a steam radiator, which served the purpose very well. Each species was tagged with its herbarium number. *• -vi-Ce) POISONING AMD PRESSING. When dry, the specimen was soaked in a poisoning sol-ution of alcohol, carbolic acid, and mercuric "bichloride, then placed in a moist chamber to relax, and when sufficiently pliable the stem was bent o1?er so that the plant would lie flat. It was then laid between folds of paper tov/elling and pressed that v/ay. (f) PACKETTING. For herbarium purposes these specimens were packetted, this method taking much less spa^e than does boxing. Inreach packet was enclosed a slip of paper with the herbarium number, the name of the mushroom, its habit and habitat, the locality in which it was collected, the date, the collector's name, and any other necessary remarks. The number and name of the mush-room was also written on the outside of the packet. Two sizes of packets were used. One, .5%" x 3%" » serened for the majority of forms, and another, 5 n x 8W held the larger plants. ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS. In many of the keys used, the writer has followed those of Kauffman in his "Agaricaceae of Michigan", making alter-ations where such seemed necessary to accomodate our western forms. The writer takes this opportunity to express her indebtedness to Mr.H.T.Gussow, (formerly Dominion botanist)! Ottawa, for the use ifff both text and plates of Ricken's -Vll-."Blatterpilze", which proved very valuable in the determination of species; and to Prof ,iF.Dickson, whoso kindly supervised this work, photographed the specimens as they came in, and constant-ly gave of his time in smoothing out problems which so frequent-ly arose. The writer's gratitude is also expressed to those interested friends who from time to time brought or sent in specimens to he identified. •* -1-AGARICACEAE OF VANCOUVER DISTRICT.

Hyc.Herh.H0.34. This species comes near H.miniatus. hut also hears some resemhlance to H.marginatus. Kauffman says that the trama of H.miniatus is of parallel hyphae, while in this one the hyphae are distinctly interwoven. It is lilce H.marginatus in that the pileus fades on drying, the gills in some specia mens retaining their color, in others, losing it, apparently depending on age of plant when collected. It differs from K. clor.ophanus in having trama of interwoven hyphae, no trace of citron in its color, and a non-viscid stem. H.ceraeerfus has a, trama of interwoven hyphae, hut its pileus is viscid and retains its color, hoth these characters differing from the specimens collected. This leaves it nearest to H.miniatus and H.marginatus. 2, Panus Fr, Two species in this genus were collected, and may he separated as follows; A.

Collected Feb.t6th. in the woods, TJ.B.l. campus, only on above date, though the same patch was in good condition at least two months later. In Kauffman's description he says the taste is . very disagreeable, while in our specimens the taste is not very marked. The gills are connected by very prominent ridge-like veins. U.B.C.

This Marasmius is exactly like the one pictured in Hard^ book as M.candidus. but Eauffman points out that this picture does not agree with the M. Candidas of Fries, being much too large. Kaufflnan suggests that it is possibly M. magnis-poruR Murr. Our specimens agree pretty well with the description given by Murrill, except that the spores are a little smaller. •« -12-6.

Although this form has been ftescribed as a Clito-cybe, it has characters which make it resemble the genera Offlphalia and Hygrophorus as well. The general shape of the plant suggests Omphalia, but the stem is so tough and elastic that it seemed better to put it under Clitocybe. The somewhat waxy appearance of the gills made it resemble a Hygrophorus, so it is only tentatively recorded as a Clitocybe. (2) Clitocybe ST>. Illustrations: none. PI.XYVI F'<J -•*-.

As nearly as could be judged from the literature on hand, this little Omphalla belongs somewhere near 0,hepatica-, but the gills axe not distant, but vary from sub-distant to close. Ricken uses the proximity of the gills to each other to separate spme of the species from others, and if it is placed in the "gills almost crowded" group, it falls in Q.pyxidata. and Ricken*s description of this species does not fit it at all, especially when he emphasizes the point that in 0, pyxidata the gills are the darkest part of the whole plant. In our specimens -24-the gills are the lightest part of the whole plant. (3) 0. {campanella?) rr. yWTT *2.. Illustrations: Plate 221, Fig. 1 , in this work. Hard,Mushrooms,Plate 17, p.1$1.

The mild taste of this mushroom does not agree with McSlvaine's key if we put it in this species and variety. However, since we found Panus stipticus, (which is reputed to have a very astringent or peppery taste) with a rather mild taste, yet leaving no doubt as to its identity, the same has been done with this form, namely putting it where it seems to "belong. 24.
