Combined Keys to Illustrated Genera of Ascomycetes is a compilation of the 200 genera covered in Illustrated Genera of Ascomycetes, Volumes 1 and 2. It also includes corrections and additional information about the 100 genera described in Volume 1. Other aids to identification in the text include:
- synoptic lists that group the genera according to fungal characteristics, including ascomal morphology, shape, color, cell number of the ascospores, and substrate.
- alphabetical ordering of genera within defined categories.
- cross-referencing of names included in two or more sections of a particular list.
- a glossary of terms used in the descriptions of the genera.
The keys are divided into four parts based on the number of cells in the ascospore: Amerosporae, Didymosporae, Phragmosporae, and Dictyosporae. The keys are also reversible, making it easy to retrace the steps that lead to a particular genus.
