We analyzed the DNA sequences of four gene regions, 28S and 18S rDNA, the ITS region and rpb2, to obtain a high resolution phylogenetic tree of Dacrymycetes. In addition, we comparatively studied micro- and macromorphological characteristics of representative species. The traditional generic classification based on morphological characteristics was not reflected by our molecular phylogenies. Ancestral state reconstructions indicated that the morphology of basidia and clamp connections are… 
Cultural and cytological characterization of Dacryopinax primogenitus, a new species in the Dacrymycetes with a fully sequenced genome
TLDR
Ulastructural analysis shows the characteristic septal-pore apparatus for the class and endogenous origin of the epibasidia/sterigmata, which may be a common occurrence in Dacrymycetes and the early diverging orders of its sister class, the Agaricomycete.
Phylogeny and character evolution in the Dacrymycetes, and systematics of Unilacrymaceae and Dacryonaemataceae fam. nov.
We present a multilocus phylogeny of the class Dacrymycetes, based on data from the 18S, ITS, 28S, RPB1, RPB2, TEF-1α, 12S, and ATP6 DNA regions, with c. 90 species including the types of most
Phylogenetic relationships of eight new Dacrymycetes collected from New Zealand
TLDR
This survey of dacry mycetous species in the Southern Hemisphere has increased taxon sampling for phylogenetic analyses that can serve as a basis for the construction of a stable classification of Dacrymycetes.
A six-gene phylogenetic overview of Basidiomycota and allied phyla with estimated divergence times of higher taxa and a phyloproteomics perspective
TLDR
A phylogenetic overview of Basidiomycota and related phyla in relation to ten years of DNA based phylogenetic studies since the AFTOL publications in 2007 is provided.
Fungal Systematics and Evolution
A new genus named Dendrodacrys is proposed for a monophyletic group in Dacrymycetaceae, containing species with pulvinate to depressed basidiocarps, distinctly branched hymenial hyphidia, and up to
Notes, outline and divergence times of Basidiomycota
TLDR
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.
Complementary molecular methods reveal comprehensive phylogenetic diversity integrating inconspicuous lineages of early-diverged wood-decaying mushrooms
TLDR
A comprehensive phylogenetic diversity profile for the early-diverging wood-decaying mushrooms Dacrymycetes is obtained using an approach that combines fruiting-body collection, culture isolation, and environmental DNA metabarcoding of decaying branches.
Phylogenetic evidence places the coralloid jelly fungus Tremellodendropsis tuberosa (Tremellodendropsidales) among early diverging Agaricomycetes
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships of Tremellodendropsis tuberosa, a tough, coralloid fruiting bodies that emerge from a basal tuber, as well as unusual, partially septate basidia, large elliptical spores, and regular clamp connections, are explored.
Fungal evolution: diversity, taxonomy and phylogeny of the Fungi
TLDR
The current status of the phylogeny and taxonomy of fungi is reviewed, providing an overview of the main defined groups and the main phylogenetic and taxonomical controversies and hypotheses in the field.

Sequence analyses of the 28S rRNA gene D1/D2 region suggest Dacrymyces (Heterobasidiomycetes, Dacrymycetales) is polyphyletic
TLDR
The study suggests that basidiocarp morphology has limited taxonomic value at the generic or familial level and that there is a need for a taxonomic reassessment of this order, including a redescription of Dacrymyces.
Phylogenetic relationships among ascomycetes: evidence from an RNA polymerse II subunit.
TLDR
Findings show that a slowly evolving protein-coding gene such as RPB2 is useful for diagnosing phylogenetic relationships among fungi, and suggests that fruiting body formation and forcible discharge of ascospores were characters gained early in the evolution of the Ascomycota.
A five-gene phylogeny of Pezizomycotina.
TLDR
Pezizomycotina is the largest subphylum of Ascomycota and includes the vast majority of filamentous, ascoma-producing species, and the seven remaining classes formed a monophyletic group that corresponds to Leotiomyceta.
Taxonomic study of the Japanese Dacrymycetes
TLDR
An investigation of the dacrymycetous fungal flora of Japan was attempted, and 28 taxonomic entities were recognised, including five new taxa, i.e. Dacry myces ancyleus, D. aureosporus,D.

A phylogenetic overview of the Agaricomycotina.
TLDR
The deepest nodes in the Agaricomycetes suggest that the Sebaci- nales, Cantharellales and Auriculariales are among the most ancient lineages, and the Polyporales are strongly supported as monophyletic and are placed as the sister group of the Thelepho- rales.
Reconstructing the early evolution of Fungi using a six-gene phylogeny
TLDR
It is indicated that there may have been at least four independent losses of the flagellum in the kingdom Fungi, and the enigmatic microsporidia seem to be derived from an endoparasitic chytrid ancestor similar to Rozella allomycis, on the earliest diverging branch of the fungal phylogenetic tree.
Characterization and identification ofStrobilomyces confusus ectomycorrhizas on momi fir by RFLP analysis of the PCR-amplified ITS region of the rDNA
We identified ectomycorrhizal (ECM) roots formed byStrobilomyces confusus associated withAbies firma based on molecular analyses combined with ECM descriptions and examined the correspondence between
Evolution of complex fruiting–body morphologies in homobasidiomycetes

TLDR
There is a ‘driven’ trend towards the evolution of complex forms in homobasidiomycetes, and phylogenetic trees from a dataset of 481 species and ancestral state reconstruction using parsimony and maximum likelihood methods suggest this.
