Article
The Roseinae clade is a lineage of the genus Russula primarily composed of species of Russula subsect. Roseinae. Species in this morphologically distinct clade possess a white to pale cream spore print, mild taste, positive reaction to sulfovanillin, and primordial hyphae with acid-resistant crystals in the pileipellis. Here, we present a morpholog...

Entoloma (Agaricales, Basidiomycota) is a species-rich genus with approximately 2000 species known worldwide. In Cen- tral America, however, information about the species of this genus is sparse, despite the generally high biodiversity in this region. Recently, 124 specimens of Entoloma were collected in Panama, Chiriquí Province. In the present pu...

In this new series of Fungal Biodiversity Profiles, the authors provide descriptions for ten new taxa: Ilytheomyces uncinatus W. Rossi & M. Leonardi, sp. n ov. (Ascomycota, Laboulbeniales) and several B asidiomycota: in family Entolomataceae for E ntoloma aurantioalpinum Armada, Vila, Bellanger, N oordel., Krisai & Dima, sp. n ov. and E. nigroflave...

Dry dipterocarp forests are among the most common habitat types in Thailand. Russulaceae are known as common ectomycorrhizal symbionts of Dipterocarpaceae trees in this type of habitat. The present study aims to identify collections of Russula subsection Amoeninae Buyck from dry dipterocarp forests in Thailand. A multi-locus phylogenetic analysis p...

In spring 2020, seven creeks in the Ilm district of Thuringia were investigated for the diversity of aquatic fungi and fungi of adjacent wetland sites. 33 species were found, including three first records for Thuringia and one first record for Germany. Selected species are portrayed and illustrated.

Species of the genus Russula are key components of ectomycorrhizal ecosystems worldwide. Nevertheless, their diversity in the tropics is still poorly known. This study aims to contribute to the knowledge of the diversity of Russula species classified in subsection Roseinae based on specimens recently collected in tropical montane rainforests in wes...

Article
Species of Russula are ubiquitous members of ectomycorrhizal fungal communities in tropical ecosystems. However, an important part of the total tropical diversity of this genus and its biogeo-graphic patterns is unknown due to the lack of studies on Russula in tropical ecosystems. We combined molecular, morphological, ecological, and biogeographic...

Morphological, anatomical and ultrastructural characteristics are important for taxonomical and phylogenetic studies of fungi. For scanning electron microscopy (SEM), usually only dry voucher specimens are available. For dried plant material, Aerosol® OT (AOT) has been shown to be a suitable rehydration agent for SEM preparation. For swelling and s...

Russula aurantiopectinata sp. nov. and Russula magica sp. nov., two new species from tropical montane rainforests of northern Thailand, are described based on morphological and molecular genetic data and illustrated. The phylogenetic lineage comprising Russula magica, Russula olivaceohimalayensis, Russula seperina and Russula rhodomarginata is form...

Species of the ectomycorrhizal genus Lactifluus , and often entire sections, are typically unique to a single continent. Given these biogeographic patterns, an interesting region to study their diversity is Central America and the Caribbean, since the region is closely connected to and often considered a part of the North American continent, but bi...

Abstract The ectomycorrhizal genus Lactifluus is known to contain many species complexes, consisting of morphologically very similar species, which can be considered cryptic or pseudocryptic. In this paper, a thorough molecular study is performed of the clade around Lactifluus deceptivus (originally described by Peck from North America) or the dece...

Since 2007, the quality of Russula descriptions has improved and the use of molecular support for species delimitation and the number of published new species has increased. However, the description style is not consistent and has regional or author-specific patterns. Most recent publications still favour descriptions of spores compared to hymenium...

Entoloma griseopruinatum is a presumably rare species with a poorly known intraspecific morphological variability. Herein, descriptions of two specimens of this species found in Bavaria, Germany, are given. Morphological differences between these specimens and the type specimen and the delimitation of E. griseopruinatum from similar species is disc...

Abstract: The two species Coprinellus albidofloccosus and Entoloma fuscohebes are reported for the first time form Croatia. Both are described in detail and presented by colour fotos, their distribution and ecology is discussed. While C. albidofloccosus is regarded as a very rare, E. fuscohebes has not been recognized as an independent species unti...

Project
The ambition of this initiative is to join Russula experts from various countries worldwide to an agreement to use a standard morphological description for the genus Russula with defined minimal requirements. There is a lot to improve, because not only important characters are missing in published descriptions, but some publications miss widely used chemical reagents and almost all descriptions ignore often very different structure of pileipellis between pileus center and margin.
