This has finally beenrealised, since 1992, with Dr Irmgard Krisai-Greilhuber as editor. Our journal appearsannually and publishes mycological and licheno-logical articles in German, English and French.It is a great stimulus for mycology in Austria,not only for the few professional mycologistsbut especially for very active amateurs, forexample papers by Hauslmecht (1996); Klofac &Krisai-Greilhuber (1994) and Mader & Mader(1994). The journal is supported by the AustrianMinistry of Science, Art and Traffic.
