And the streets will be paved with mushrooms…

In case you wanted to live on a mycologically fun street – Looks like there is a home for sale onĀ Ustilago Drive which is just around the corner from Chanterelle Drive.

I do wonder how many pathogens have streets named after them now.

It would be too cruel to letter-writers and the frogs to the name a Sierra Mtn road Batrachochytrium Way or for a farmer to have to live on Puccinia Ave alongside a wheat field in North Dakota…
