Phylogenetic reassessment of Hyaloscyphaceae sensu lato (Helotiales, Leotiomycetes) based on multigene analyses.
This study performed molecular phylogenetic analyses using multiple genes to evaluate the phylogenetic utility of morphological characters traditionally used in the taxonomy of Hyaloscyphaceae through reassessment of the monophyly of this family and its genera. Expand
Coleopteran and Lepidopteran Hosts of the Entomopathogenic Genus Cordyceps sensu lato
It is hoped that accumulative work will be useful as a quick reference for interested biologists, forest ecologists, biocontrol researchers, and fungal and insect taxonomists to apprehend host range and host specificities of Cordyceps fungi. Expand
Characterization of Volatile Profiles of Six Popular Edible Mushrooms Using Headspace-Solid-Phase Microextraction Coupled with Gas Chromatography Combined with Chemometric Analysis.
The classification of six mushroom species was successfully achieved using canonical discriminant analysis on volatile metabolite data sets obtained by headspace-solid-phase microextraction gas chromatography (HS-SPME-GC), and CDA was much more efficient than principal component analysis for the differentiation of mushroom species.

First Report of the Ash Dieback Pathogen Hymenoscyphus fraxineus in Korea
During a fungal survey in Korea, H. fraxineus-like apothecia were collected from fallen leaves, rachises, and petioles of Korean ash and Manchurian ash trees and the morphological and ecological traits of these materials are described. Expand
Mitochondrial phylogeny reveals intraspecific variation in Peronospora effusa, the spinach downy mildew pathogen
A sequence analysis of two partial mitochondrial DNA genes was carried out to investigate the genetic variability of this pathogen, and a phylogeographic pattern was observed, which corresponds to two major groups, an Asian/Oceanian clade and another group, which includes American/European specimens.

New Record of Xylaria persicaria on Liquidambar Fruits in Korea
Some Xylaria materials growing on the fruits of Liquidambar spp. were collected. They were identified as X persicaria on the basis of morphological characteristics and sequence analysis of theExpand
Proliferodiscus inspersus var. magniascus and Rodwayella citrinula, Two Unrecorded Taxa of Hyaloscyphaceae (Tribe Arachnopezizeae) in Korea
Two species belonging to Proliferodiscus and Rodwayella are recorded for the first time from Korea, both of which are distinguished from other members of the genus by small ascospores and its occurrence on grasses. Expand
Enumeration of Remarkable Japanese Discomycetes (5): First Records of one Operculate and two Inoperculate Discomycetes in Japan
Three remarkable discomycetes (one operculate and two inoperculate) documented for the first time in Japan are described and illustrated: Bisporella discedens (Helotiaceae, Helotiales),Expand
