Université de Montréal, Cercle des Mycologues de Montréal Fungarium (CMMF)

The Cercle des mycologues de Montréal Fungarium is a relatively recent collection, founded in 1988. The collection holds fungi collected by Yves Lamoureux, scientific advisor of the Cercle des mycologues de Montréal (CMM - http://www.mycomontreal.qc.ca/) over a twenty years period, and by members of the CMM and other amateur mycological societies. It includes more than 5000 dried specimens of macrofungi (Fungi) and some slime molds (Amoebozoa, formerly Myxomycetes) of Quebec and neighbouring provinces/states, representing about 2000 species. Almost all specimens were photographed before drying.
