Fu, S.-Z. , Q.-B. Wang & Yi-Jian Yao. An annotated checklist of Leccinum in China. Mycotaxon 96: 47 - 50. 2006.
ABSTRACT: Species of the genus Leccinum reported from China are reviewed and annotated with a summary of their current research status. A total of 32 names have been included from an extensive literature research. Among these names, two are regarded as synonyms of other species of the genus and another one transferred to Tylopilus. The taxonomic status of three names, the generic placement of two names and the application of one name to Chinese material are controversial. Among the remaining 23 names, seven were reported without specimen support and 16 with specimen citation. It is also found that the descriptions of six of these taxa from China differ from those from Europe and elsewhere. Specimen citation, morphology description and species identification of the Chinese records are also discussed.
