Trichoderma mienum sp. nov., isolated from mushroom farms in Japan
Based on morphological observations and phylogenetic analyses, this species is described as a new species, Trichoderma mienum, representing its Hypocrea teleomorph and Trichodma anamorph, but its morphological characteristics do not match the other members of this clade.
Taxonomic study of Japanese Corticiaceae (Aphyllophorales) VII
Four corticioid fungi (Basidiomycota) from Tottori Prefecture are reported as new records from Japan, with morphological descriptions, illustrations, and remarks based on the Japanese specimens provided.
Evolutionary history of the sequestrate genus Rossbeevera (Boletaceae) reveals a new genus Turmalinea and highlights the utility of ITS minisatellite-like insertions for molecular identification
A barcode gap analysis demonstrates that the insertion within the ITS2 is more informative for discrimination at various taxonomic levels than the rest of the ITS region and could therefore serve as a unique molecular barcode for these genera.
Diversity and systematics of the sequestrate genus Octaviania in Japan: two new subgenera and eleven new species
The diversity and phylogeny of Japanese Octaviania specimens are investigated using a multifaceted approach including scanning and transmission electron microscopy as well as analysis of nuclear ribosomal DNA and EF-1α (tef1) sequences.
Production of ethanol by the white-rot basidiomycetes Peniophora cinerea and Trametes suaveolens
The white-rot basidiomycetes, Peniophora cinerea and Trametes suaveolens, can produce ethanol from hexoses and exhibited simultaneous saccharification and fermentation of amorphous cellulose.
Identification of Trichoderma, a Competitor of Shiitake Mushroom (Lentinula edodes), and Competition between Lentinula edodes and Trichoderma species in Korea
Results suggest that the two Trichoderma species may cause potentially serious economic losses in shiitake cultivation of Korea, and the identi-fication of Trichodma at the species level has proveddifficult.
The sequestrate genus Rosbeeva T.Lebel & Orihara gen. nov. (Boletaceae) from Australasia and Japan: new species and new combinations
The sequestrate genus Chamonixia has been shown to have affinities to the Boletales, in particular the genus Leccinum, and a new genus, Rosbeeva T.Lebel & Orihara gen. nov., is proposed for the Australasian, Japanese and Chinese taxa.
A new species, Ceriporia lacerata, isolated from white-rotted wood.
Ceriporia lacerata (Aphyllophorales, Basidiomycota) is described from a ripe basidiocarp successfully developed in a culture isolated from a white-rotted tree on Kyushu Island, Japan. Cultural
Combined molecular and morphological data for improving phylogenetic hypothesis in Dacrymycetes
A new genus is proposed, Unilacryma, for D. unisporus, a unique species having predominantly non-bifurcate basidia and subglobose to ovoid basidiospores with transverse and longitudinal septa in molecular phylogenies of Dacrymycetes.
