Article
The mycological heritage of Johann Christian Buxbaum is still little explored, but this issue has not only a great historical interest. In recent taxonomy, there is a tendency to the splitting of “linneones” species complexes and in some cases, it becomes justified even to appeal to pre-Linnean authors. The corpus of remarkable Buxbaum’s drawings i...
