Multigene phylogeny and taxonomic revision of Atheliales s.l.: Reinstatement of three families and one new family, Lobuliciaceae fam. nov.

Fungal Biol 2021 Mar 27;125(3):239-255. Epub 2020 Nov 27.

Department of Organismal Biology, Uppsala University, Norbyvägen 18D, 752 36, Uppsala, Sweden. Electronic address:

Atheliales (Agaricomycetes, Basidiomycota) is an order mostly composed of corticioid fungi, containing roughly 100 described species in 20 genera. Members exhibit remarkable ecological diversity, including saprotrophs, ectomycorrhizal symbionts, facultative parasites of plants or lichens, and symbionts of termites. Ectomycorrhizal members are well known because they often form a major part of boreal and temperate fungal communities. Read More

A phylogeny for the plant pathogen using a multigene data set.

Mycologia 2020 Sep-Oct;112(5):1017-1025. Epub 2020 Sep 18.

is proposed as a new combination for in the Polyporales (Basidiomycota) based on morphological and molecular features. This parasitic macrofungus attacks cashew trees, , cassava, , and some indigenous trees in southern regions of Tanzania and poses a serious threat to agroforestry and livelihood conditions in the area. Phylogenetic trees were produced from partial sequences of three rDNA gene regions and a portion of translation elongation factor 1-alpha () gene of for comparisons with samples from the antrodia clade.

Characteristics, transcriptional patterns and possible physiological significance of glycoside hydrolase family 16 members in Coprinopsis cinerea.

FEMS Microbiol Lett 2019 04;366(7)

Jiangsu Key Laboratory for Microbes and Microbial Functional Genomics, Jiangsu Engineering and Technology Research Center for Industrialization of Microbial Resources, College of Life Science, Nanjing Normal University, Nanjing 210023, PR China.

The glycoside hydrolase (GH) 16 family of Coprinopsis cinerea includes 15 members distributed in four subgroups (A1, A2, B and D) by phylogenetic analysis. The expression patterns match well with the requirement of wall-softening in the germination of basidiospores, hyphal growth and branching, primordium formation, stipe elongation, pileus expansion and autolysis. Remarkably, expression levels of different GH16 members varied with different morphogenetic events. Read More

Phylogeny of the genus and taxonomic assessment of the group.

Mycologia 2019 May-Jun;111(3):423-444. Epub 2019 Apr 9.

a Beijing Advanced Innovation Center for Tree Breeding by Molecular Design , Beijing Forestry University , Beijing 100083 , China.

The genus of the Hymenochaetaceae is characterized by resupinate to pileate basidiocarps, a dimitic hyphal system with fine crystal aggregates and encrusted generative hyphae in dissepiment edge and tube trama, the presence of hymenial setae, and hyaline, thin-walled, smooth basidiospores. Members of the group are easy to distinguish from other species of because of the moderately large pores, presence of mycelial setae, and large hymenial setae. Here, we explore phylogenetic relationships among 20 species of based on examination of some 90 collections sampled worldwide. Read More

The genus (Basidiomycota; Agaricales) in Pakistan with the description of four new species.

MycoKeys 2018 11(39):41-61. Epub 2018 Sep 11.

Department of Botany, University of the Punjab, Lahore 54590, Pakistan.

Mushrooms with a thin-fleshed pileus that becomes plicate on opening, deliquescent lamellae and dark brown to blackish basidiospores are commonly called coprinoid mushrooms. The genus is one of the important lineages of coprinoid mushroom in the family Psathyrellaceae. Species-level taxonomy in is based mainly on the presence or absence and the structure of veil and cystidia on the pileus, of cystidia on the lamellae and on basidiospore morphology. Read More

Longevity of light- and dark-colored basidiospores from saprotrophic mushroom-forming fungi.

Nhu H Nguyen

Mycologia 2018 Jan-Feb;110(1):131-135

a Department of Plant and Soil Sciences , University of Hawai'i at Mānoa , Honolulu , Hawaii 96922.

Fungi can produce resistant propagules that may last for decades. Basidiospores from ectomycorrhizal fungi had been experimentally shown to last for at least 6 yr, but there are few reports on the longevity of saprotrophic members of mushroom-forming fungi. Here, the author shows evidence of spore longevity of these fungi by collecting, drying, storing, and germinating these spores over time. Read More

Early development of Moniliophthora perniciosa basidiomata and developmentally regulated genes.

BMC Microbiol 2009 Aug 4;9:158. Epub 2009 Aug 4.

Centro de Biotecnologia e Genética, Laboratório de Genômica e Expressão Gênica, Departamento de Ciências Biológicas, Universidade Estadual de Santa Cruz, Rodovia Ilhéus-Itabuna, km 16, 45662-000, Ilhéus-Bahia, Brazil.

Background: The hemibiotrophic fungus Moniliophthora perniciosa is the causal agent of Witches' broom, a disease of Theobroma cacao. The pathogen life cycle ends with the production of basidiocarps in dead tissues of the infected host. This structure generates millions of basidiospores that reinfect young tissues of the same or other plants. Read More

The phylogenetic placement of the Leucogastrales, including Mycolevis siccigleba (Cribbeaceae), in the Albatrellaceae using morphological and molecular data.

Mycol Res 2007 Jun 14;111(Pt 6):653-62. Epub 2007 Apr 14.

University of Michigan Herbarium, 3600 Varsity Drive, Ann Arbor, MI 48108-2287, USA.

The morphology of many hypogeous fungi converges on a homogeneous reduced form, suggesting that disparate lineages are subject to a uniform selection pressure. The primary goal of this study was to evaluate the morphology and infer the phylogeny of the Leucogastrales with Mycolevis siccigleba using a Bayesian methodology. A comprehensive morphological assessment was used for an a priori phylogenetic inference to guide the sequencing effort. Read More
