Thank you for drawing my attention to GBIF.
I am one of the few persons left in the world who actually work at morphological
taxonomy of an agaric group worldwide and have over 30 years of experience. I
work on the Amanitaceae (Agaricales, Basidiomycetes, Fungi).
I went to look at GBIF this morning. For fungi, it is worse than a bad joke. I
immediately decided that it was better to do a few more dozen new taxa than it
was to be a part of straightening out the the hopeless mess related to my group
on GBIF (such as it is...they have one specie inexplicably listed both as a
fungus and a synonym of a Pine tree).
I PAY MY OWN WAY in retirement. They have millions. What a travesty.
