Fieldwork on this project and study of previous collections in 1994 concentrated on the primary long­term objective of adding to the species inventory of the broad geographic area previously defined (McKnight, 1982; McKnight, et al., 1986; McKnight & Moser, 1993) using the same collecting, laboratory, and herbarium methods. Our studies again concentrated on the Cortinariaceae, particularly the genus Cortinarius. This work was aided significantly when we were joined for a short time during August by Dr. Egon Horak from the Geobotanisches Institut, ETH. Zurich, Switzerland, currently specializing in the genus Galerina.
