Global diversity and distribution of macrofungi
The estimates developed in this study are consistent with a hypothesis of high overall fungal species diversity and are in line with a calculated estimate of between 53,000 and 110,000 macrofungal species derived using plant/macrofungAL species ratio data.
Obba and Sebipora, new polypore genera related to Cinereomyces and Gelatoporia (Polyporales, Basidiomycota)
Two new genera are described in the Cinereomyces clade: Obba to incorporate C. rivulosa and a new austral species, Obba valdiviana, known from southern Argentina and recorded here also from Tasmania, and Sebipora to accommodate a new species from tropical Asia, S. aquosa.
Perenniporiella chaquenia sp. nov. and further notes on Perenniporiella and its relationships with Perenniporia (Poriales, Basidiomycota)
Perenniporiella chaquenia sp. nov. is described from Argentina. New records of P. pendula and P. micropora are discussed. A key to Perenniporiella species is presented. Preliminary phylogenetic…
Notes, outline and divergence times of Basidiomycota
Divergence times as additional criterion in ranking provide additional evidence to resolve taxonomic problems in the Basidiomycota taxonomic system, and also provide a better understanding of their phylogeny and evolution.

Phytophthora species from declining Austrocedrus chilensis forests in Patagonia, Argentina.
A survey of Phytophthora spp. in declining and healthy Austrocedrus chilensis forest was conducted to obtain an overview of the species that inhabit these forests. Seventeen declining and three…
The phylogenetic disposition of Antrodia s.l. (Polyporales, Basidiomycota) from Patagonia, Argentina
Phylogenetic trees generated from maximum-parsimony, neighbour-joining and Bayesian-inference analyses showed that the Argentinean collections were distributed inside the following three main clades; ‘Amyloporia’ and ‘Antrodia clades’ did not have strong molecular support; however, they were well defined with a polyphasic approach.
The genus Hyphodontia in the Patagonian Andes forests of Argentina
Characters, typical of the genus Hypochnicium, are shown to fit within Hyphodontia, given other morphological features typical of that genus, i.e., hyphal features, basidiome construction, and morphology of cystidia and basidia.
Phylogeny and global diversity of Polyporus group Melanopus (Polyporales, Basidiomycota)
- Yu-Cheng Dai, Huilin Xue, J. Vlasák, M. Rajchenberg, B. Wang, Li-Wei Zhou
- BiologyFungal diversity
This study explores the phylogeny and species diversity of Polyporus sensu lato focusing on the group Melanopus based on global samples, and recovers four clades, Favolus, Neofavlus,Melanopus and PolyporellusClades, while several species in the morphological groups MelAnopus andPolyporus were outside these clades.
