A multi-locus phylogenetic study of the order Arthoniales is presented here using the nuclear ribosomal large subunit (nuLSU), the second largest subunit of RNA polymerase II (RPB2) and the mitochondrial ribosomal small subunit (mtSSU). These genes were sequenced from 43 specimens or culture isolates representing 33 species from this order, 16 of which were(More)
Notes on 113 fungal taxa are compiled in this paper, including 11 new genera, 89 new species, one new subspecies, three new combinations and seven reference specimens. A wide geographic and taxonomic range of fungal taxa are detailed. In the Ascomycota the new genera Angustospora (Testudinaceae), Camporesia (Xylariaceae), Clematidis, Crassiparies(More)
Low sequence divergence within functional alleles is predicted for the self-incompatibility locus because of strong negative frequency-dependent selection. Nevertheless, sequence variation within functional alleles is essential for current models of the evolution of new mating types. We genotyped the stylar self-incompatibility RNase of 20 Sorbus aucuparia(More)
Taxonomic names are key links between various databases that store information on different organisms. Several global fungal nomenclural and taxonomic databases (notably Index Fungorum, Species Fungorum and MycoBank) can be sourced to find taxonomic details about fungi, while DNA sequence data can be sourced from NCBI, EBI and UNITE databases. Although the(More)
S-RNase-based gametophytic self-incompatibility evolved once before the split of the Asteridae and Rosidae. In Prunus (tribe Amygdaloideae of Rosaceae), the self-incompatibility S-pollen is a single F-box gene that presents the expected evolutionary signatures. In Malus and Pyrus (subtribe Pyrinae of Rosaceae), however, clusters of F-box genes (called(More)
Pulveroboletus fragrans, a new bolete species with a strong aromatic odor, was found in forests dominated by Castanopsis and Lithocarpus (Fagaceae) in Northern Thailand. The species is introduced with macroscopic and microscopic descriptions and illustrations, as well as a three-gene phylogenetic analysis that confirms its position within the Pulveroboletus(More)
A new truffle species, Tuber lannaense, is described based on collections from northern Thailand. This species is characterized by yellow-brown to brown ascomata with dark brown gleba and ellipsoid to narrow ellipsoid spores with spiny reticulum. It grows in mycorrhizal association with Betula alnoides and Carpinus poilanei. Tuber lannaense is similar to T.(More)
