Four new genera encompassing six new species are described in the Lyophyllaceae ( Agaricales ): the monotypic Australocybe from Australia; the monotypic Phaeotephrocybe from Belize; the monotypic Nigrocarnea from Laos containing the novel conidia-producing species N. radicata and Praearthromyces containing two Asian taxa, the conidia-producing P ....
Article
The genus Morchella has gone through turbulent taxonomic treatments. Although significant progress in Morchella systematics has been achieved in the past decade, several problems remain unresolved and taxonomy in the genus is still in flux. In late 2019, a paper published in the open-access journal Scientific Reports raised serious concerns about t...

This is a point-by-point rebuttal of the paper entitled “High diversity of Morchella and a novel lineage of the esculenta clade from the north Qinling Mountains revealed by GCPSR-based study” by Phanpadith et al. (2019), published in the Open-Access journal Scientific Reports (2019, 9:19856). The present critique is published as supplementary to th...

The ancestor of termites relied on gut symbionts for degradation of plant material, an association that persists in all termite families.1,2 However, the single-lineage Macrotermitinae has additionally acquired a fungal symbiont that complements digestion of food outside the termite gut.3 Phylogenetic analysis has shown that fungi grown by these te...
Article
The genus Claudopus (Entolomataceae) is characterised by its crepidotoid or pleurotoid basidiomata, a highly reduced and lateral or almost absent stipe, flesh-brown, salmon or pinkish-brown spore-print, and basidiospores that are distinctly angular in all views. Currently, ca. 20 species of Claudopus have been described worldwide. Some samples coll...

2020) Rhodocybe fusipes (Entolo-mataceae), a new species from Amazonian 'terra-firme' Forest of Brazil.-Sydowia 72: 163-170. Rhodocybe fusipes (Entolomataceae) is described as a new taxon belonging to sect. Rufrobrunnea. The specimens were found in the Amazon rain forest of Brazil, growing on soil, among litterfall. This new species is morphologica...
Article
The generic or subgeneric delimitation by morphology of the Entolomataceae (Agaricales, Basidiomycota) is often based on the habit and external features of the basidiomata, the hyphal arrangement of the pileus surface and the shape of the basidiospores, which possess either bumps or undulate-pustules forming short ridges, or longitudinal ridges or...
Article
Morphological and molecular phylogenetic studies of true morels (Morchella) in North America, the Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Ecuador, and Peru led to the discovery of four undescribed species of Morchella. Two new species in the Elata clade, one from the Dominican Republic, initially distinguished by the informal designation Mel-18, and a newly...

The monotypic genus Phylloporopsis is described as new to science based on Phylloporus boletinoides. This species occurs widely in eastern North America and Central America. It is reported for the first time from a neotropical montane pine woodland in the Dominican Republic. The confirmation of this newly recognised monophyletic genus is supported...

Gyroporus (Gyroporaceae, Boletales) is a highly diverse genus of poroid ectomycorrhizal mushrooms with a nearly worldwide distribution. Previous attempts to unravel the diversity within this genus proved difficult due to the presence of semicryptic species and ambiguous results from analysis of ribosomal RNA markers. In this study, we employ a comb...

The Reserva Particular do Patrimônio do Natural Cristalino protects an evergreen forest in the southern Amazon Basin between the upper reaches of the Tapajós and Xingu rivers. The habitats include tall upland Amazonian terra firme forest, stands of native bamboo, seasonally-flooded varzea forest and cerrado vegetation. Photos by S. Sourell, except...

Nomenclatural type definitions are one of the most important concepts in biological nomenclature. Being physical objects that can be re-studied by other researchers, types permanently link taxonomy (an artificial agreement to classify biological diversity) with nomenclature (an artificial agreement to name biological diversity). Two proposals to am...

Pleurocollybia cibaria is a wild edible mushroom sold in markets in Peru. The genus Pleurocollybia shares a phylogenetic alliance with the Tricholomatineae in the family Biannulariaceae (= Catathelasmataceae), however, no taxonomic investigations of P. cibaria have been performed since it was originally described over 50 years ago. Here we employ a...

Multiple collections of a new member of the Entolomataceae were found in W National Park of Niger during a survey of macrofungi. This new species with a dark reddish brown scaly pileus surface and a yellow stipe belongs in the genus Rhodophana of the Rhodocybe-Clitopilus clade in the Entolomataceae. Using a three-gene analysis of the phylogenetic p...

Rhodocybe tugrulii sp. nov. is described based on both morphological and molecular data (analysis of nrITS and nrLSU sequences) from Zigana Mountain, Trabzon, Turkey and Lääne County, Estonia. It is distinguished by the grey to beige or slightly reddish brown basidiomata, a small, convex to hemispheric, cracked pileus surface, decurrent lamellae; a...

Sequences from the internal transcribed spacer region of the ribosomes helped circumscribe two new Rhodocollybia species for neotropical America: R. olivaceogrisea from Costa Rica; and R. tenuipes from Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico. Both species are phylogenetically related to R. butyracea. Rhodocollybia maculata represents a new report for Do...

Despite the recent molecular systematic analyses of the Entolomataceae (Agaricales, Basidiomycota), a robust classification of genera supported by morphological and phylogenetic evidence remains unresolved for this cosmopolitan family of pink-spored fungi. Here, a phylogenetic analysis for one of the two major clades (Rhodocybe-Clitopilus), was con...
Article
Cercopemyces is described as a new genus based on collections of a newly discovered agaricoid species from the arid Cercocarpus forests of Utah and Colorado. The new genus is near Ripartitella and Cystodermella based on nLSU, rpb1 and ITS molecular sequences but distinctly different from these taxa. The ornamented basidiospores and inflated cells i...

Abstract Geoglossum simile is a distinctive species of the earth tongue class Geoglossomycetes, first described in 1873. The taxonomic standing of this species has long been disputed, resulting in nearly 70 years of potential misdiagnoses. Although G. simile was originally described from North America, it has subsequently been reported from several...

Molecular phylogenies using 1-4 gene regions and information on ecology, morphology and pigment chemistry were used in a partial revision of the agaric family Hygro- phoraceae. The phylogenetically supported genera we recognize here in the Hygrophoraceae based on these and previous analyses are: Acantholichen, Ampulloclitocybe, Arrhenia, Cantharell...
Article

Entocybe melleogrisea sp. nov. is described from a subboreal forest type in Québec, Canada. The stature of this species is robust and tricholomatoid and thus is very different from the mostly collybioid species placed in the genus. The distinctive basidiospore morphology, basidiospore histochemistry, and prolific, obvious clamp connections on all h...

of Entolomataceae, a highly diverse family of Agaricales with ca. 1100 described species (Kirk et al., 2008), has just begun to be studied in depth using molecular sequence data (Co-David et al., 2009; Baroni et al., 2011). The subjects of this paper are two unusual species in the family that have been described from eastern North America—one gaste...

Morphological and molecular characteristics support the recognition of a welldefined taxonomic group within the Entolomataceae. The distinctive basidiospore form and a three locus DNA analysis separate the species that share these characteristics from other species of Entoloma s. l. We propose here a new genus, Entocybe, to accommodate these taxa.
