Stip Helleman microscoping

I am born in 1962 and have since 1990 a special interest in mushrooms that soon has developed in a membership of the N.M.V. (Netherlands Mycological sociëty ). After buying "Pilze der Schweiz bnd 1 Ascomyceten" this has soon grown out in a addiction for inoperculate discomycetes, especially the hairy ones for their beauty (and something to grab on to ;-). For a living I work in a cable and wire factory in the southern part of the Netherlands
