With more than 65,000 specimens of fleshy fungi, SFSU's Harry D. Thiers Herbarium is the largest and most important collection of such taxa west of the Mississippi. Created by Professor Thiers in 1959, the Herbarium in total holds more than 100,000 specimens of fungi and other flora from around the world. In addition, the Herbarium has two associated labs -- the Desjardin Lab and the Patterson Lab. It also has a Web site that includes photos and documentation of agiracales ("gilled" mushrooms) from the Hawaiian Islands, Java, Bali and Southeast Asia. Pictured here is a salmon gilled agricale from Molokai.
