Much domestication and breeding work on C. nuda has been done at INRA 
Bordeaux, Station Champignons, B.P. 81, 33883 Villenave d'Ornon, FRANCE, 
by J. Guinberteau et al.  A forthcoming paper by P. Callac in CJB devotes 
a paragraph to this subject, including citations.  50-80 tons have been 
produced annually in France since 1990.  A hybrid cultivar, FERLAND(r) 
INRA-SOMYCEL is sold by Somycel S.A., Z.I Sud-Route de Tours, 37130 
Langeais, FRANCE.  [Full disclosure: I am associated with Sylvan/Somycel]
