Abstract

Fresh and herbarium material of the rare species Cordyceps longisegmentis (Ascomycetes, Clavicipitaceae) from the Czech Republic is thoroughly described and discussed. Fresh stromata were found in relict pine woods in the Bohemian Forest. Revision of the herbarium material from PRM showed that most collections labelled as Cordyceps capitata are in fact Cordyceps longisegmentis. In the collections studied the length of ascospore parts was constantly smaller than in the North American material. Other European mycologists have also observed this fact. Consequently, the European and American populations could be slightly different. Differences between the related species C. longisegmentis and C. capitata are discussed.
