The Genus Scutellinia (Pezizales) in Croatia III. A new species - Scutellinia tuberculata.

Authors:

Abstract

A new species Scutellinia tuberculata N. Matocec is described, which settles the warin temperate deciduous broadleaved forests in Croatia. The species is compared with morphologically most similar species and its ecology and taxonomy are discussed. S. tuberculata is introduced as a new member of subg. Scutellinia, sect. Globisporae Svrcek.
... Although over 100 species are listed in the genus, only four species were reported in Korea [22]. Among the species, 10 species that occur in soil have globose to subglobose ascospores, and the others that occur on decayed wood have ellipsoid ascospores [50][51][52][53][54]. Phylogenetic analysis showed that the genus Scutellinia is well divided in the family Pyronemataceae [51]. ...

Fungi act as important decomposers in the forest environment. They recycle essential nutrients, promote plant growth through mycorrhizal relationships, and act as food for small animals. Samples of 265 indigenous fungal species were collected from Mudeungsan National Park in 2020. These species were identified based on morphological, molecular, and phylogenetic analyses using the internal transcribed spacer (ITS), nuclear large subunit rRNA (LSU), and RNA polymerase II second largest subunit (rpb2) regions. Subsequently, seven species were identified as unrecorded species in Korea: Cordyceps cicadae, Dentocorticium bicolor, Hymenochaete nanospora, Physisporinus crataegi, Rigidoporus piceicola, Russula raoultii, and Scutellinia crinita. This study reveals their detailed macro- and microscopic morphological characteristics with phylogenetic trees to report them as unrecorded species in Korea.

Scutellinia collections from cushion peatlands of the high Andes. Scutellinia citrina from Bolivia; Scutellinia minor from Argentina and Scutellinia patagonica from Chile and Peru growing in cushion peatlands in high Andean areas above 3.800-4.900 m (above sea level), are described in detail. The global distribution of all described three species is more extended as so far known. A recent key of subglobose to globose species is added.
... In considering the delimitation of species morphological characters were used as well habitat information and geographic distribution. Among the characters that have previously been used in defining species, hair morphology and ascospore shape and ornamentation have been especially emphasized in most keys at the infrageneric and species level (Bogacheva & Kullman 2006, Donadini 1983, Gamundí 1956, 1975, Hansen & Knudsen 2000, Kullman 1982, Le Gal 1972, Matočec 2000, Moravec 1974, Schumacher 1979, 1990, Svrček 1971. Two different types of hairs were distinguished in Scutellinia species. ...

Eleven species of the genus Scutellinia (Pyronemataceae, Pezizales) are recognized in Korea by analysis of macro- and micro-morphological characteristics, substrates and geographical distributions. Eight species are recorded new to Korea, namely, S. ahmadiopsis, S. badio-berbis, S. colensoi, S. jilinensis, S. nigrohirtula, S. olivascens, S. setosa and S. patagonica. Based on the exceptional length of marginal hairs and tuberculate ascospore wall ornamentation, two Korean specimens occurring on wood are described as a new species. Infraspecific morphological variations among collections within S. scutellata and S. patagonica were found. These are tentatively treated as species complexes. The highly questionable occurrence of S. setosa in Asia was confirmed. The importance of characteristics of paraphyses for species delimitation is highlighted. Descriptions and taxonomic notes of the recognized species of Scutellinia are provided with a taxonomic key, illustrations and photographs of these species from Korea.

Scutellinia ulloae sp. nov., collected on soil from Temascaltepec in central Mexico near Nevado de Toluca (aka Xinantécatl) volcano, is described and illustrated. A unique tuberculate ascospore ornamentation distinguishes the new species from the approximately 60 other known Scutellinia taxa.

A new species of Scutellinia discovered in Jeju, Korea, Scutellinia jejuensis, is formally introduced. A combination of morphological characteristics and sequence analysis of the partial LSU rDNA demonstrates that the fungus represents a species distinct from all other subglobose to globose-spored Scutellinia species.
