Karoly Kalchbrenner (1807-1886) Was a Hungarian mycologist. He trained in theology early in life and became a priest in Slovakia. His contributions include the publication of 60 papers and description of more than 400 fungi from Europe, Asia, Australia and South America. He wrote and illustrated the Icones Selectae Hymenomycetum Hungariae.
