Notes, outline and divergence times of Basidiomycota
TLDR
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.
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
TLDR
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
TLDR
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.
The sequestrate genus Rosbeeva T.Lebel & Orihara gen. nov. (Boletaceae) from Australasia and Japan: new species and new combinations
TLDR
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.
Taxonomic reconsideration of a sequestrate fungus, Octaviania columellifera, with the proposal of a new genus, Heliogaster, and its phylogenetic relationships in the Boletales
TLDR
The morphological reevaluation and molecular analyses revealed that O. columellifera shares its lineage with the boletoid mushroom-forming Xerocomus chrysenteron complex and that it does not form a monophyletic clade with other Octaviania species.
Erratum to: The sequestrate genus Rossbeevera T.Lebel & Orihara gen. nov. (Boletaceae) from Australasia and Japan: new species and new combinations
TLDR
A list of the species names for a newly described genus honouring the New Zealand mycologist Ross Beever, including Rossbeevera T. Lebel & Orihara gen. nov.
Mixotrophy of Platanthera minor, an orchid associated with ectomycorrhiza-forming Ceratobasidiaceae fungi.
TLDR
This is the first evidence of photosynthetic orchids associated with ectomycorrhizal Ceratobasidiaceae taxa, confirming the evolution of mixotrophy in the Orchideae orchid tribe, and of ectomy corollary abilities in the Ceratoblastsidiaceae.
Unique phylogenetic position of the African truffle-like fungus, Octaviania ivoryana (Boletaceae, Boletales), and the proposal of a new genus, Afrocastellanoa
TLDR
The data suggest that the genus Afrocastellanoa is a unique sequestrate lineage with one described species and several undescribed species, all of which likely form ectomycorrhizas with African trees.
Rossbeevera yunnanensis (Boletaceae, Boletales), a new sequestrate species from southern China
TLDR
Maximum likelihood and neighbor joining phylogenies of the nLSU rDNA dataset indicate that the new sequestrate (truffle-like) species, Rossbeevera yunnanensis, constitutes the earliest diverging lineage within the genus Ross beevera and has a close phylogenetic relationship to species of Leccinellum.
