Boletes from Belize and the Dominican Republic
Results of surveys of stipitate-pileate Boletales in Belize and the Dominican Republic are presented, greatly augmenting the knowledge of the diversity of this group in the Caribbean Basin.
A phylogenetic overview of the antrodia clade (Basidiomycota, Polyporales)
A phylogenetic overview of the five main groups recovered: the fibroporia, laetiporus, postia, laricifomes and core antrodia groups is presented, able to identify a number of well supported clades within the main groups.
The genus Agaricus in the Caribbean. Nine new taxa mostly based on collections from the Dominican Republic
The objective in this paper is to describe the species of Agaricus collected in this country and to classify them whitin the new taxonomic system, including formal descriptions of the three new sections to which they belong.
Revision of leccinoid fungi, with emphasis on North American taxa, based on molecular and morphological data
This study investigates the phylogenetic relationships among the leccinoid fungi and other members of the family Boletaceae using portions of three loci from nuc 28S rDNA, translation elongation factor 1-α (TEF1), and the RNA polymerase II second-largest subunit (RPB2).
Molecular phylogeny, morphology, pigment chemistry and ecology in Hygrophoraceae (Agaricales)
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, retaining in the Hygrophoraceae the basal cuphophylloid grade comprising the genera Cuphophylla, Ampulloclitocybe and Cantharocybe, despite weak phylogenetic support.
Megaphylogeny resolves global patterns of mushroom evolution
A phylogenetic tree of 5,284 fungal species is used to infer ages and broad patterns of speciation/extinction, diversification and morphological innovation in mushroom-forming fungi.
Molecular phylogeny and taxonomy of the genus Veloporphyrellus
Five species of Veloporphyrellus, a genus known from North and Central America, southeastern Asia, and Africa, are described and illustrated and its relationship to other genera was not resolved.
Armillaria altimontana, a new species from the western interior of North America
Results indicate that isolates of A. altimontana formed a monophyletic group and clustered with A. nabsnona, which is in agreement with recent phylogenetic studies of Armillaria.
Outstanding Pinkish Brown-Spored Neotropical Boletes: Austroboletus subflavidus and Fistulinella gloeocarpa (Boletaceae, Boletales) from the Dominican Republic
Abstract The occurrence of Austroboletus subflavidus and Fistulinella gloeocarpa is documented from the Dominican Republic. The latter species is reported for the first time outside its original
