University of Texas Herbarium (TEX)

The University of Texas Herbarium (TEX) is part of the Billie L. Turner Plant Resources Center, which houses the combined herbaria of TEX and the Lundell Herbarium (LL). The combined PRC collections include over one million specimens from all parts of the world and represent the 13th largest herbarium in the United States. The two herbaria (TEX and LL) are completely integrated and interfiled, although each sheet is marked as to its herbarium and should be cited as such. The original TEX fungi collections (1116 specimens) were transferred to NY in 1990. Current collections represent Texas fungi in collaboration with the Central Texas Mycological Society.
