Up to date lists of type specimens can be generated over the WWW from the NZFUNGI database.
On the Fungarium search form, specify a PDD Accession number >1, check the "restrict to types" box, and a list of all type specimens will be generated. Nearly all systematic revisions and monographs over the last 76 years on New Zealand fungi are based entirely or in part on specimens in the collection. Major treatments of agarics and coral fungi by overseas workers have utilised PDD holdings. The principal published list of plant diseases in New Zealand is largely substantiated by specimens held in PDD. Current staff have published over 70 papers over the past 10 years, based mainly on PDD specimens.
A list of type specimens of New Zealand fungi held in the herbarium was published in 1992 (McKenzie et al. 1992: A list of type specimens of New Zealand fungi held in DSIR Plant Protection herbarium (PDD). Mycotaxon 43: 77-156).
