Abstract

Consideration is given to the distribution of Lactarius species within the forest types of the Lesser Antilles and to their mycorrhizal partners. The possibility of seasonal rainfall, rather than temperature variation, being necessary for the successful growth of ectotrophic mycorrhizal fungi in tropical climates is postulated. Keys and illustrated descriptions are provided for the species of Lactarius known to occur in the Caribbean area, with especial attention given to the Lesser Antilles. Lactarius caribaeus, L. castaneibadius, L. ferrugineus, L. murinipeS) L. nebulosus and L. putidus are described as new.
