Tom May

Senior Mycologist

Tom May has research interests in the taxonomy, ecology and conservation of larger fungi, and in related historical, bibliographic and nomenclatural aspects. Genera currently under study include the agarics Laccaria and Cortinarius (especially the subgenus Dermocybe) and the disc-fungus Banksiamyces. Tom has been the lead author in an ongoing project to produce a catalogue of Australian fungi, several volumes of which have been published in the Fungi of Australia series. He is currently working on an interactive key to the genera of Australian agarics.
