Genus Clathraceae


FAMILY CLATHRACEAE

The members of the family Clathraceae have a volva similar to the volva of the Phallaceae. The volva ruptures, and the receptacle issues in a similar manner. The members of this family have the spore receptacle latticed or branched instead of tubular or cylindrical, and bear the spores on the inner surface of the receptacle rather than on the outer surface.
