    “Seventy-nine Australasian and eight extra-Australasian species of Pezizales are enumerated, described and illustrated from specimens preserved in the Herbarium of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew (England). They are distributed among thirty-two genera which in turn are arranged in eight families belonging to two suborders, the Sarcoscyphineae and the Pezizineae. Critical notes, nomenclautral and taxonomic synonyms, the habitat and area of distribution of almost all species described are given, together with comments on some related extra-Australasian taxa.” (from summary) From the series Verhandelingen der Koninklijke Nederlandse Akademie van Wetenschappen, Afdeling Natuurkunde, d. 57, no 3.
