Abstract: The author illustrates several species of Scutellinia, as well as Ramsbottomia asperior (Pyronemataceae, Pezizales), Helvella philonotis (Helvellaceae, Pezizales), and Peziza heimii (Pezizaceae, Pezizales), collected in alpine grassland and wetlands near the Col de la Moutière (2444 m a.s.l.) in the core zone of the Mercantour National Park in 2021 and 2023. The Scutellinia samples are further characterized by ITS sequencing. The consistency between molecular and morphological data is discussed, and recommendations are made for future work on Scutellinia.

Located in the extreme southeast of France, the Mercantour National Park exhibits a blend of mountainous and maritime influences, a unique feature resulting in a wide range of habitats and significant fungal diversity that has not been explored extensively, especially regarding small species. Here, we describe several ascomycetes collected in the core zone of the Park […]
