Thelephora is a genus of ectomycorrhizal basidiomycetes with basidiomes of varied shape which has been poorly studied in tropical ecosystems. In this paper, we present Thelephora versatilis and Thelephora pseudoversatilis, two new species collected in the same localities of deciduous and sub-perennial tropical forests of Jalisco, Mexico. Basidiomes of both(More)
The /tomentella-thelephora lineage is one of the most highly dominant clades among ectomycorrhizal communities worldwide. Despite its importance as a root symbiont, its fruit bodies are inconspicuous and rarely found. Knowledge regarding the diversity of Tomentella in the Neotropics is scarce, and is based largely on environmental samples. Here, we describe(More)
The ectomycorrhizal symbiosis was long thought to be restricted to temperate forests. However, as tropical forests have been explored, it has become clear that these habitats host unique ectomycorrhizal (ECM) fungi. We have been exploring tropical dry forests (TDF), which are endangered terrestrial ecosystems and hotspots of endemism. Since Fabaceae is the(More)
