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. Expand
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. Expand
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 phylogeneticExpand
Type studies of Polyporaceae (Aphyllophorales) described by J. Rick
The type species of Polyporaceae (Aphyllophorales) and of other related genera, i.e. Irpex, Grammothele and Theleporus, and of the 93 names of species or varieties 34 are invalidly published and 21 are synonyms are proposed. Expand
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 threeExpand
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
The genus Hyphodontia is reviewed for southern Argentina from specimens gathered on Nothofagus spp., Austrocedrus chilensis, Drymis winteri, Maytenus magellanica and Berberis ilicifolia. SixteenExpand
A reevaluation of Wrightoporia and Amylonotus (Aphyllophorales, Polyporaceae)
New species of Wrightoporia Pouz. from Africa and Asia have features that overlap the limits of Amylonotus Ryv. We found dextrinoidicity, wall coloration of the skeletal hyphae, and the generalExpand
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. Expand
