Over the next few years, we hope to extend this earlier study to selected groups of ectomycorrhizal fungi, including an ecological assemblage (the hypogeous fungi) for which there are essentially no data. In addition to the (1) hypogeous fungi, emphasis will be placed on members of the (2) family Russulaceae and those representatives of (3) other groups of ectomycorrhizal macrofungi that are common and conspicuous in the forests of northwestern India. The latter would include species in such genera as Boletus, Cantharellus, Cortinarius, Laccaria, Leccinum and Suillus. Many of the species involved are currently known by names that were applied originally to morphologically similar species in Europe and/or North America, which may or may not represent the same taxonomic entity.
