Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)
Description: George W. Clinton (a founder and first president of the Buffalo Society of Natural Sciences) launched the mycological career of Peck by obtaining for him the position of botanist of the New York State Cabinet of Natural History and he was responsible for the publication of Frost's "Boleti of New England." This paper discusses the interaction between Peck and Frost and presents the history of some of their taxa. A study of the type of Boletus glutinosipes Snell & Hesler (a taxon that has remained unknown since 1940) indicates that it is a synonym of B. auriporus Peck, while an examination of authentic material of B. innixus Frost demonstrates that B. caespitosus Peck is a synonym of it.
