Abstract

Bottomley’s (1948) Gasteromycetes of South Africa is still widely used for identification purposes. However, as a result of developments since 1948, the work has become outdated in many respects. Entries in the Geastreae (Lycoperdaceae), Tulostomataceae, Nidulariaceae and Sphaerobolaceae  sensu Bottomley (1948) that require updating are listed and brieflycommented on.
