Key MethodPhylogenetic relationships among members of the antrodia clade were investigated with molecular data from two nuclear ribosomal DNA regions, LSU and ITS. A total of 123 species representing 26 genera producing a brown rot were included in the present study. Three DNA datasets (combined LSU-ITS dataset, LSU dataset, ITS dataset) comprising sequences of 449 isolates were evaluated with three different phylogenetic analyses (maximum likelihood, maximum parsimony, Bayesian inference). We present a…
Species Diversity and Molecular Phylogeny of Cyanosporus (Polyporales, Basidiomycota)
Five new species of brown-rot fungal genus Cyanosporus are discovered based on morphological features and molecular data and fifteen species previously belonging to the Postia caesia complex are transferred to Cyanospora and proposed as new combinations.
Hidden diversity in the Antrodia malicola group (Polyporales, Basidiomycota)
Taxonomy of the Antrodia malicola group is revised based on DNA, morphological, ecological, and geographic data, and its morphological characters and host preferences are discussed.
Species Diversity, Molecular Phylogeny, and Ecological Habits of Fomitopsis (Polyporales, Basidiomycota)
Fomitopsis is a worldwide brown-rot fungal genus of Polyporales, which grows on different gymnosperm and angiosperm trees and has important ecological functions and economic values. In this study,
A new species of Antrodia (Basidiomycota, Polypores) from China
In phylogenetic analysis inferred from ITS and nLSU rDNA sequences, the new species forms a distinct lineage in the Antrodia s.
Re-evaluation of the Genus Antrodia (Polyporales, Basidiomycota) in Korea
A combination of morphological and internal transcribed spacer region sequence analyses revealed that 27 of 89 specimens previously identified by morphology alone were correct, whereas 35 of these specimens were misidentified as other Antrodia species.
Species and genera in Aleurodiscus sensu lato as viewed from the Southern Hemisphere
ABSTRACT Phylogenetic relationships of 12 species in Aleurodiscus sensu lato (Stereaceae, Russulales) described from the Patagonian forests of Chile and Argentina were investigated based on sequences
Two new records of the resupinate polypore fungi, Ceriporia cystidiata and Macrohyporia dictyopora, in Thailand
Wood-inhabiting resupinate polypore fungi are abundant and widely distributed in tropical forests of Thailand. In our survey, Ceriporia cystidiata and Macrohyporia dictyopora were found in Thailand
Morphological characters and molecular data reveal three new species of Fomitopsis (Basidiomycota)
Phylogenetic analyses carried out based on sequences from the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) regions, confirmed the affinities of three new species within Fomitopsis sensu stricto.


Phylogenetic relationships of Antrodia species and related taxa based on analyses of nuclear large subunit ribosomal DNA sequences.
The generic status of Fibroporia, but not Amyloporia, was supported in this study, indicating that Antrodia is not a monophyletic group.
Phylogenetic analysis of Antrodia and related taxa based on partial mitochondrial SSU rDNA sequences
Sequences of mitochondrial SSU rDNA were obtained from six species of Antrodia and related fungal taxa to reveal their phylogenetic relationships, indicating thatAntrodia is a heterogeneous genus and that brown rot fungi have evolved convergently.

Polymorphisms arising within the ITS1-5.8S-ITS2 region can provide practical markers for establishing a foundation for the further expansion of an ITS sequence database of medically important fungi.
The phylogenetic distribution of resupinate forms across the major clades of mushroom‐forming fungi (Homobasidiomycetes)
Phylogenetic relationships of resupinate Homobasidiomycetes (Corticiaceae s. lat. and others) were studied using ribosomal DNA sequences from a broad sample of res upinate and nonresupinate taxa to support monophyly of the eight major clades of Homob as well as independent lineages corresponding to the Gloeophyllum clade, corticioid clade and Jaapia argillacea.
Progress toward a phylogenetic classification of the Polyporaceae through parsimony analysis of mitochondrial ribosomal DNA sequences
Seven groups of species are generally well supported (as measured by bootstrapping) or are congruent with previous taxonomic hypotheses, and Parsimony analyses of these sequences suggest that the Polyporaceae are polyphyletic.
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.
Higher-level phylogenetic relationships of Homobasidiomycetes (mushroom-forming fungi) inferred from four rDNA regions.
Parsimony and maximum-likelihood analyses support the monophyly of the eight major clades recognized by Hibbett and Thorn, and most groups are strongly supported in bootstrapped parsimony analyses, but the polyporoid clade remains weakly supported.
Phylogenetic classification of Trametes (Basidiomycota, Polyporales) based on a five–marker dataset
The use of a single generic name (Trametes) for the trametoid clade is considered to be the best taxonomic and nomenclatural option as the morphological concept of Trametes would remain almost unchanged, few new nomenClatural combinations would be necessary, and the classification of additional species based on morphological characters alone will still be possible.
High phylogenetic diversity among corticioid homobasidiomycetes.
It is concluded that corticioid fungi hold a considerable share of the phylogenetic diversity displayed by homobasidiomycetes, and should always be considered when phylogenetic studies of larger basidiomyCetes are designed.
The phylogenetic position of Postia s.l. (Polyporales, Basidiomycota) from Patagonia, Argentina
It is found that a separation between specimens of Postia pelliculosa and Ryvardenia cretacea from either side of the Pacific suggests they could be considered different at the species level from a phylogenetic point of view.
