Agaricus Blazei taxinomy error?
    #1221416 - 01/15/03 02:19 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

The taxonomy of the mushroom known as Himematsutake or the Royal Sun Agaricus has been confused until recently. The species being grown in China, Japan and Brazil is, in fact, not Agaricus blazei but a new species, now called Agaricus brasiliensis. To read more on this bifurcation of taxa, please consult:

Wasser, S.P., M. Y. Didukh, A. de Meijer, M.L.A. de A. Amazonas, E. Nevo, P. Stamets & A.F. da Eira, 2002. ?Is a widely cultivated culinary-medicinal Royal Sun Agaricus (the Himematsutake mushroom) indeed Agaricus blazei Murrill?? International Journal of Medicinal Mushrooms, vol. 4., pp. 267-290.


-- The information I provide is only information from readings, growing of gourmet mushrooms, and second hand stories--

Definitely not the first 'shroom to get reclassified! :wink: (Elm oysters are at least one other I can think of, off the top of my head).


It may look like a button mushroom right now, but wait until you see how it grows!

Yeah, taxonomists get bored, start looking at different speciments, and say "oh look, a difference!" and boom another species is born or they split a genera or something. Fungi are so plastic and complex....

Listen! Do you smell something?
