Numerous papers and valuable collections of the Fungus Flora of the state have been contributed by earlier botanists. Due to the effort of such men as Halsted, Bessey, Arthur, Hitchcock, Holway and Pammel, a collection of over 200,000 specimens of the fungi of the state is assembled in the herbarium of Iowa State College and other prominent herbaria in America. These collections are listed and described in various papers which are scattered in numerous publications over a period of a half century. It is obvious, then, that in order that such material be of value to students of mycology, it would seem desirable to collect it into some tangible form, by reexamining the specimens in the herbarium of Iowa State College, revising the nomenclature to conform to the more recent researches; and collecting and summarizing the literature bearing on the fungus flora of the state.
