Nakamurella albus sp. nov.: A Novel Actinobacterium Isolated from a Lichen Sample
A novel actinobacterium, YIM 132087T, isolated from Lepraria sp. lichen collected from Yunnan province, south-west PR China. Cells are Gram-stain-positive, catalase-positive and oxidase-negative,Expand
Circumscription and phylogeny of the Lepidostromatales (lichenized Basidiomycota) following discovery of new species from China and Africa
ABSTRACT Based on an exhaustive sampling of all known Lepidostromatales, a lineage of clavarioid lichen-forming basidiomycetes, we assess (i) the phylogenetic affinities of the six Chinese speciesExpand
Methylobacterium planium sp. nov., isolated from a lichen sample
On the basis of phylogenetic, chemotaxonomic, phenotypic and genomic data, strain YIM 132548 T is concluded to represent a novel species of the genus Methylobacterium, for which the name MethylOBacterium planium sp. Expand
Rubellimicrobium rubrum sp. nov., a novel bright reddish bacterium isolated from a lichen sample
Based on comparative analyses of phenotypic, molecular, chemotaxonomic data and genomic comparisons, strain YIM 131921T is concluded to represent a novel species of the genus Rubellimicrobium, for which the name rubrum sp. Expand
New species and records of Pyxine (Caliciaceae) in China
Abstract In this study, the diversity of Pyxine Fr. in China was assessed based on morphological and chemical traits and molecular data are inferred from ITS and mtSSU sequences. Nineteen speciesExpand
Squamarina (lichenised fungi) species described from China belong to at least three unrelated genera
Abstract New collections of six Squamarina species from type localities in China were studied. The comparison of morphological characteristics and secondary metabolites with those of the typeExpand
Aureimonas leprariae sp. nov., Isolated from a Lepraria sp. Lichen
The results of the polyphasic taxonomic study, including phenotypic, chemotaxonomic, and phylogenetic analyses, showed that strain YIM132180T represents a novel species of the genus Aureimonas, for which the name Aureimona leprariae sp. Expand
Sculptolumina yunnanensis, a new species of Buellia s.l. (lichenized Ascomycota, Caliciaceae) from Yunnan, China
A molecular phylogenetic analysis was performed for Sculptolumina, including S. japonica and S. yunnanensis, revealed that Sculptorumina forms a monophyletic clade with high support, and both S.J. japanica and Y. ynnanensis have a sister relationship within this clade. Expand
Three new species and one new combination of Gypsoplaca (lichenized Ascomycota) from the Hengduan Mountains in China
Three new species of Gypsoplaca are described, based on combined sequences of ITS and nrLSU, and all species formed monophyletic clades, and a phylogenetic tree is established. Expand
