  author={Audrey L C Chew and Dennis E Desjardin and Yee Shin Tan and Md. Yusoff Musa and Vikineswary Sabaratnam},
  journal={Fungal Diversity},
Fifteen bioluminescent fungi recently collected from Peninsular Malaysia are analysed herein. [] Key Method The phylogeny of the Malaysian bioluminescent fungi and closely related taxa were evaluated with molecular data from the nuclear ribosomal large subunit (LSU), RNA polymerase 2 second largest subunit (RPB2) and internal transcribed spacers (ITS) gene regions. DNA sequences data support the circumscription of species based on the morphological species concept, but was unable to fully support the current…

Taxonomic studies of bluish Mycena (Mycenaceae, Agaricales) with two new species from northern China

The morphological data and the results of the phylogenetic analyses support the introduction of M. caeruleogrisea and M.caeruleomarginata as new species in Mycena s.l.

Mycena jingyinga, Mycena luguensis, and Mycena venus: three new species of bioluminescent fungi from Taiwan

Three new species of bioluminescent fungi Mycena jingyinga, M. luguensis, and M. venus are proposed based on phylogenetic and morphological analyses and are characterized by small size, white or brown, adnate to subdecurrent lamellae, pubescent stipe with fibrils at bases, four-spored basidia, amyloid spores, cheilocystidia with various shapes.

New species and records of bioluminescent Mycena from Mexico

ABSTRACT Seven species of bioluminescent fungi are recorded from the cloud forests in Mexico. Six represent new species belonging to the genus Mycena, whereas Mycena globulispora is a new

The Amazonian luminescent Mycena cristinae sp. nov. from Brazil

Morphological data support M. cristinae as a different species compared to previously described taxa and the luminescence is evident in the basidiomata (especially the stipe) and in the mycelium on the substrate.

Two new species of Panellus (Agaricales, Basidiomycota) from China

Two new species of Panellus, P. bambusicola and P. yunnanensis, are described and illustrated from Yunnan Province, southwestern China and formed two distinct phylogenetic lineages based on the internal transcribed spacer regions (ITS) and nuclear large subunit ribosomal RNA gene regions (nLSU) sequences.

Mycena genomes resolve the evolution of fungal bioluminescence

It is shown that bioluminescence evolved in the last common ancestor of mycenoid and the marasmioid clade of Agaricales and was maintained through at least 160 million years of evolution.

Resources of Iranian agarics (Basidiomycota) with an outlook on their antioxidant potential

Agaric fungi are an important group of macromycetes with diverse ecological and functional properties, yet are poorly studied in many parts of the world. Here, we comprehensively analyzed 558 agaric

Taxonomy and Multi-Gene Phylogeny of Poroid Panellus (Mycenaceae, Agaricales) With the Description of Five New Species From China

Five poroid species of Panellus are described as new species based on morphology and molecular phylogenetic analyses inferred from an nrITS dataset and a multi-gene dataset.

Notes, outline and divergence times of Basidiomycota

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.

Fungal Planet description sheets: 1042–1111

Novel species of fungi described in this study include those from various countries as follows: Antarctica, Cladosporium arenosum from marine sediment sand, Kosmimatamyces alatophylus from soil, and Italy, Penicillium taurinense from indoor chestnut mill.

A luminous mushroom from Vietnam, identified earlier as Omphalotus aff. illudens (Van, 2009. J Siber Fed Univ. 2:157–171), was studied. Morphological observations of collected fruiting bodies were

Major clades of Agaricales: a multilocus phylogenetic overview

An overview of the phylogeny of the Agaricales is presented based on a multilocus analysis of a six-gene region supermatrix, which recovered six major clades, which are recognized informally and labeled theAgaricoid, Tricholomatoid, Marasmioid, Pluteoid, Hygrophoroid and Plicaturopsidoid clades.

The function of luminescent mycelium may be to increase the intensity of light from the fungus and more effectively attract nocturnal insects and other animals that serve as disseminating vectors for fungal spores.

Erratum to: Mycena kentingensis, a new species of luminous mushroom in Taiwan, with reference to its culture method

Phylogenetic analyses by Bayesian and maximum likelihood methods showed that M. kentingensis is close to M. stylobates and M. adscendens, a new luminous mushroom discovered in the tropical forest of Kenting National Park in Taiwan.
