One of the functions of the Iowa Academy of Science is to acquaint ourselves with the flora and fauna of our state and to make record of the occurrence of plants or animals which have some peculiarly desirable or undesirable character which makes them noteworthy. We have many papers and scattered references to the fungus flora of the state, but at no time have adequate illustrations of the fleshy-fungi occurring here been published. I propose, therefore, to gather into this series of notes illustrations of the more common fleshy-fungi of Iowa in order that the interested membership may become more familiar with this group of plants. There is little or no research value in this contribution but I hope that the publication will afford the interested worker a criterion for comparison with his own collections and a means of identification of specimens when such are found.
