  author={Helmut Besl and Andreas Bresinsky},
  journal={Plant Systematics and Evolution},
The chemotaxonomic findings relating to the generaBoletinus, Suillus, Gastroboletus, Gomphidius, andChroogomphus are summarized and discussed, using published data as well as our own hitherto unpublished evidence of pigments and chromogens. The study confirms repeatedly made claims that these genera are closely related. In addition to the presence of pigments which are typical for most members of theBoletales (e.g., pulvinic acid derivatives, terphenyl quinones, cyclopentenones), prenylated… 

Studies on the Structure and Biosynthesis of Tridentoquinone and Related Meroterpenoids from the Mushroom Suillus tridentinus (Boletales)

Tridentoquinone (1), the main pigment of Suillus tridentinus, is accompanied by the known meroterpenoid bolegrevilol (3) and a dimer, tridentorubin (5). The absolute configuration of 1 was

Tuberculate ectomycorrhizae of angiosperms: The interaction between Boletus rubropunctus (Boletaceae) and Quercus species (Fagaceae) in the United States and Mexico.

The data suggest that the T ECM morphology is an adaptive feature that has evolved separately in two suborders of Boletales (Suillineae and Boletineae) and that TECM formation is controlled by the mycobiont because TECm are found on distantly related angiosperm and gymnosperm host plants.

Derivation of a polymorphic lineage of Gasteromycetes from boletoid ancestors

Morphological and ecological characters, and pigment synthesis support the delimitation of the Sclerodermatineae, and indicate the radiation of different lineages in the Boletales originating from fungi with primitive tubular hymenophores.

Studies on the Biosynthesis of Bovilactone‐4,4 and Related Fungal Meroterpenoids

The initial step in the biosynthesis of suillin (1), boviquinone-4 (2) and bovilactone-4,4 (3) in Suillus species is the geranylgeranylation of 3,4-dihydroxybenzoic acid at the 2-position. Feeding

Borofutus, a new genus of Boletaceae from tropical Asia: phylogeny, morphology and taxonomy

A new monotypic genus in the Boletaceae, Borofutus, typified by B. dhakanus, is described using morphological and molecular evidence and is sister to Spongiforma in molecular phylogenetic analyses using DNA nucleotide sequences of single or multiple loci.

Phylogenetic overview of the Boletineae.

9 Ecological and Economical Importance of Parasitic Zoosporic True Fungi

These fungi are particularly well-adapted to their environments because of motile zoospores and resistant sporangia, and the pathosystem model provides an excellent basis for understanding host–parasite relationships and the effect of environmental parameters on these microorganisms.

Ants, Plants and Fungi: A View on Some Patterns of Interaction and Diversity

The pigment patterning in Boletales correlates well with the phylogeny as revealed by DNA analysis of selected gene sections, and the author describes further activities during his lifework in regard to ant–plant interactions resulting in dispersal and distribution of plants.



The Genus Fuscoboletinus

The genus Fuscoboletinus was proposed (Brittonia 14: 156-172. 1962) to accommodate Boletinus ochraceoroseus Snell, B. spectabilis (Peck) Murrill and B. grisellus Peck, two species of Suillus [S.


Ectomycorrhizal characterization permits the division of the bolete species studied into two major groups, distinguished by their extramatrical phase, as well as the form, texture, and type of tissue of the fungal components of the ectomy Corrhizae.

Suillin, ein charakteristischer Inhaltsstoff von Röhrlingen der Gattung Suillus (Boletales) / Suillin, a Characteristic M etabolite from Boletes of the Genus Suillus (Boletales)

Abstract Fruiting bodies of several Suillus species contain a colourless compound, suillin, which is concentrated in the cuticle of the pileus. Its structure has been established as

Gastrosuillus laricinus is a recent derivative of Suillus grevillei : molecular evidence

A rapid, reliable protocol for direct sequencing of material amplified by the PCR and its applications, as well as a guide to methods and applications, are described.

Two Chemotypes of Boletinus cavipes

Eight terpenes, including four new compounds, were isolated from Boletinus cavipes collected from two different districts in Japan, indicating the presence of two chemotypes of the fungus B. cavipes.

A new approach to the phylogeny of the order Boletales (Basidiomycotina)

An analysis employing parsimony and character compatibility methods is carried out for selected species in the various families constituting the order Boletales s.l, and indicates that Paxillaceae is polyphyletic, and its various genera should be included within other families.

A New Species of Gastroboletus and Its Phylogenetic Significance

The present data do not provide proof of an ancestral or derived position of Gastroboletus in relation to the genera of Boletaceae, but the implications with regard to the evolution of Basidiomycetes are discussed.
