Abstract

Boletinellus merulioides forms abundant sclerotia in nature throughout its range in eastern North America. Sclerotia collected in the forest germinated to form mycelial colonies which had the same appearance and microscopic characteristics as colonies derived from sporocarps. Sclerotia which had overwintered in the forest were viable in the spring.
