The Finnish and (Finnish)-Swedish common names are mainly based on following sources
Ulvinen, Kotiranta, Härkönen, Korhonen & Järvinen, 1989. Suomen suursienten nimet - Common names of Finnish macromycetes. Karstenia 29 (Suppl): 1 - 110.
Marcel Bon, Olof Anderson (Swedish ed.), 1987. Swampar [original title: Mushrooms and toadstools of Britain and North-western Europe]. .
The classification here is not good. It's based on on miscellanous, conflicting sources -- needs a complete revision!.
Some miscellaneous structures, just to place pictures.
