Hi all!

Here is a challange for all the Internet mycologists.
Three friends of mine (Cacialli, Caroti and Doveri, authors of
a book about dung fungi) are doing a research about the species
of Coprinus described world-wide, and are collecting a huge
amount of literature about this genus. Obviously they found some
references to articles which are not available in Italy, and
after looking for them in several european institutions, they
thought to try the Web. So I have a long list of things to look
for: there are articles, species of which we know the author but
not the original description, species of which we know only the
name, and species of which we know where the original description
is, but not how to get it. For those of you who have access to
botanical libraries: please read this list and let me know if you
can help us someway. Obviously you will be refunded for the
expenses you will have to send us material. Anyway, before
sending anything, please E-mail me!
Thank you all for your help.
