Abstract While surveying the diversity of fungi of the order Mucorales, two isolates, EML-PUKI12-1 and EML-PUKI06-1, were obtained from the gut of soldier fly larvae inhabiting the bulrush at a pond located in the Chonnam National University Arboretum, Gwangju, Korea. The isolates were confirmed as Mucor irregularis and Mucor fragilis species, respectively, based on the morphological characteristics and phylogenetic analysis of rDNA internal transcribed spacer region. Such mucoralean species… 

Phylogenetic Status of Two Undescribed Zygomycete Species from Korea: Actinomucor elegans and Mucor minutus

During a survey of fungal diversity of the order Mucorales, three zygomycete isolates were isolated from freshwater and soil samples in Korea and the species A. elegans and M. minutus, belonging to an undiscovered taxon, have not been previously described in Korea.

Isolation and Characterization of Three Zygomycetous Fungi in Korea: Backusella circina, Circinella muscae, and Mucor ramosissimus

Three rare zygomycetous fungal strains isolated from soil, leaf, and freshwater samples in Korea were identified as Backusella circina, Circinella muscae, and Mucor ramosissimus, respectively, which have not yet been previously described in Korea.

Morphological approaches in studying fungi: collection, examination, isolation, sporulation and preservation

It is not possible to detail all techniques for all fungi and thus, this paper emphasizes on microfungi, and general practices of phenotypic approaches are herein outlined.

One stop shop IV: taxonomic update with molecular phylogeny for important phytopathogenic genera: 76–100 (2020)

This paper focuses on one family: Erysiphaceae and 24 phytopathogenic genera: Armillaria, Barriopsis, Cercospora, Cladosporium, Clinoconidium, Colletotrichum, Cylindrocladiella, Dothidotthia, Fomitopsis, Ganoderma, Golovinomyces, Heterobasidium, Meliola, Mucor and Wojnowiciella.

Current Insight into Traditional and Modern Methods in Fungal Diversity Estimates

The available information on classical and modern methods revealed that the DNA based molecular studies are still scant, and more studies are required to achieve the accurate estimation of fungi present on earth.

One stop shop II: taxonomic update with molecular phylogeny for important phytopathogenic genera: 26–50 (2019)

This paper is the second in a series focused on providing a stable platform for the taxonomy of phytopathogenic fungi. It focuses on 25 phytopathogenic genera: Alternaria, Bipolaris, Boeremia,

Fungal diversity notes 709–839: taxonomic and phylogenetic contributions to fungal taxa with an emphasis on fungi on Rosaceae

Novel fungal taxa are described in the present study, including 17 new genera, 93 new species, four combinations, a sexual record for a species and new host records for 16 species.



Characterization of Two New Records of Zygomycete Species Belonging to Undiscovered Taxa in Korea

EML-FSDY6-1 and EML-DG-NH3-1 isolates were confirmed as zygomycete species, Absidia pseudocylindrospora and Absidia glauca, respectively, neither species has previously been described in Korea.

Unrecorded Fungal Species Isolated from Greenhouses Used for Shiitake Cultivation in Korea

Fungal contamination is a detrimental factor affecting sawdust media-based shiitake cultivation in greenhouses. During fungal monitoring of greenhouses used for shiitake cultivation, eight fungal

DNA barcoding in Mucorales: an inventory of biodiversity

The phylogenetic analyses showed that all non-thermophilic Rhizomucor species belong to Mucor and the genus Zygorhynchus was shown to be polyphyletic based on ITS and LSU data, and several taxonomic and nomenclatural changes became necessary.

Taxonomy and epidemiology of Mucor irregularis, agent of chronic cutaneous mucormycosis

It was confirmed that M. irregularis is a single species at 96.1–100 % ITS similarity and low recombination rates between populations, and some geographic structuring was noted with some localised populations, which may be explained by limited air-dispersal.

Screening of Mucor spp. for the production of amylase, lipase, polygalacturonase and protease

This work studied amylase, lipase, polygalacturonase and protease production by fifty-six isolates of Mucor belonging to 11 different taxa, selected from herbivores dung using solid media and showed that the majority of the isolates presented several enzymatic activities.

Methods Used by Dr. R. K. Benjamin, and Other Mycologists, to Isolate Zygomycetes

The author considers the flattening of the aerial hyphae onto the substrate of the faster and higher-growing Mucorales for several consecutive days to be the critical step in isolating species of Coemansia, Piptocephalis, Syncephalon, and Dimargaritales.

Fungal diversity notes 253–366: taxonomic and phylogenetic contributions to fungal taxa

In the Ascomycota the new genera Angustospora (Testudinaceae), Camporesia (Xylariaceae), Clematidis, Crassiparies, and Parameliola (Pleosporales genera incertae sedis) are introduced.

Desaturation of polyunsaturated fatty acids in Mucor circinelloides and the involvement of a novel membrane-bound malic enzyme.

It is concluded that two distinct malic enzymes exist, one soluble and one membrane bound, with similar active sites, both have different roles in the production of NADPH, for lipid metabolism.
