Introduction
Kai Reschke works on fungal taxonomy based on multiple lines of evidence, as molecular phylogeny, ecology, and cellular organisation. He evaluates the use of conventional morphological characters for species concepts together with ACSR and is strongly interested in the advance of barcoding approaches. His study organisms belong to Agaricomycetes with special interest in Tricholoma and Entoloma, currently with main focus on Entoloma subg. Nolanea. Alignments are added to papers as 'linked data'.

Article
Although taxonomic knowledge on Tricholoma (Agaricales, Basidiomycota) is fairly comprehensive in northwest Europe, knowledge of the global diversity and distribution of Tricholoma spp. is still sparse. In this study, the diversity and distribution of some Tricholoma spp. are analyzed by morphological and molecular methods based on 70 collections f...
Article
Panama forms part of the Central American biodiversity hotspot, one of the most important biodiversity hotspots in the world. While plants are relatively well studied in Panama, the documentation of fungal diversity is still in a pioneer phase. In this publication, four species of Agaricomycetes recently collected in Panama are described as new to...

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...

Nolanea is a well-known and long-established subgenus of the genus Entoloma traditionally defined mainly by the mycenoid basidiocarps of the included species. Until now, revisions of this subgenus including molecular data exist only on a regional scale. In this study, the phylogeny of species of Nolanea is analysed based on multi-gene DNA sequences...
Book
This book, presents the first volume of an up to date revision of Entoloma s.l. in the series Fungi Europei 5: Entoloma sensu lato in Europe (1996; 2004), as well as an update of the Entoloma part of Flora agaricina neerlandica, vol. 1 (1988), with keys for identification, full descriptions and illustrations. The keys are practical and lead to spec...

A combined morphological and molecular genetic study of the European species within the /Rhombisporum clade of the genus Entoloma reveals a high species diversity. This group comprises typical grassland species with pronounced and well-differentiated cheilocystidia, and a wide range of spore shapes varying from rhomboid to five-angled. To fix the c...
Article
About 95% of fatal mushroom poisonings worldwide are caused by amatoxins and phallotoxins mostly produced by species of Amanita, Galerina, and Lepiota. The genus Lepiota is supposed to include a high number of species producing amatoxins. In this study, we investigated 16 species of Lepiota based on 48 recently collected specimens for the presence...

Australia, Austroboletus yourkae on soil, Crepidotus innuopurpureus on dead wood, Curvularia stenotaphri from roots and leaves of Stenotaphrum secundatum and Thecaphora stajsicii from capsules...

Thirteen new species of Entoloma, ten of them belonging to subgenus Cyanula from Southern Europe are fully described and illustrated, as a precursor to a completely revised European monograph and phylogenetic studies in subg. Cyanula, viz. Entoloma benedictinum, E. caeruleopinophilum, E. fazziense, E. notabile, E. ortegae, E. pallidostriatum, E. pe...

Two specimens of Resupinatus striatulus (Pers.) Murrill recently collected in the German Black Forest National Park are described and illustrated with photographs and drawings. These are the first records in Germany since 80 years. Comparison with data of records in France, Spain and Italy based on macro-and micromorphology, ecology, and molecular...

Abstract Scientific information about biodiversity distribution is indispensable for nature conservation and sustainable management of natural resources. For several groups of animals and plants, such data are available, but for fungi, especially in tropical regions like West Africa, they are mostly missing. Here, information for West African count...

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...

Starting from the morphology based taxonomy of Entoloma, reflected in Fungi Europei vol. 5a and Nordic Fungi, an attempt is made through barcoding of European species, including type specimens, to come to a phylogenetically based species concept.
