Diversity of fungi associated with roots of Calanthe orchid species in Korea
This study surveyed root associated fungal diversity of six Calanthe orchid species by sequencing the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region using 454 pyrosequencing and revealed that Paraboeremia and Coprinopsis are dominant fungal genera amongCalanthe species.
Ten New Recorded Species of Macrofungi on Ulleung Island, Korea
During a survey of indigenous fungal species from Ulleung Island, a biodiversity hotspot in South Korea, 10 unrecorded macrofungi in Korea were discovered during a survey from 2015 to 2016.
Two New Species of Laccaria (Agaricales, Basidiomycota) from Korea
Two new Laccaria species were discovered while studying the fungal diversity in the National Parks of Korea based on molecular analyses and morphologies, and were confirmed by their corresponding morphologies.

According to the results, the combination of ITS locus and morphology proved to be a robust approach to evaluate the taxonomic status of Macrolepiota species in Korea.
Investigating Wood Decaying Fungi Diversity in Central Siberia, Russia Using ITS Sequence Analysis and Interaction with Host Trees
DNA-based identification and host preference assessment of the WDF provide preliminary data on WDF diversity and their role in nutrient cycles in the ecosystem of Central Siberia and confirm a division in host preference of WDF between gymnosperms and angiosperms.
Influence of Season and Soil Properties on Fungal Communities of Neighboring Climax Forests (Carpinus cordata and Fraxinus rhynchophylla)
The results indicate that individual tree species should be considered when anticipating how the fungal communities will respond to environmental change, and that soil fungi of the two forest types differed in terms of community structure and ecological guild composition.
Three New Recorded Species of the Physalacriaceae on Ulleung Island, Korea
Three species in three genera were shown to be new records in Korea: Hymenopellis orientalis, Paraxerula hongoi, and Ponticulomyces orientalIS, the latter two are the first records of these genera in Korea.
Different patterns of belowground fungal diversity along altitudinal gradients with respect to microhabitat and guild types.
It is revealed that microhabitat types and altitudinal gradients differently affect the richness and composition of fungal communities associated with P. densiflora, providing a better understanding of plant-associatedfungal communities.
