Biography

The Dictionary of Fungi calls Bresadola "an amateur mycologist of Trento, Italy." I think that the photo shows his opinion of that.

Abbé Giacomo Bresadola Here is another photo of him, before people started doubting his identifications; note that his expression is much calmer. Murrill visited him on one of his trips through Europe, and said that Bresadola was the most "self-confident" person he had ever met. Considering Murrill's relationship with Nathaniel Lord Britton, that's saying quite a bit. Maybe it explains why Bresadola and Lloyd got along so well. Lloyd seems to have visited him a lot, but has very little biographical information.

Another picture of Bresadola, with William Alphonso Murrill, can be seen at the NYBG web page below.
