The nutritional modes of genera in Hygrophoraceae (Basidiomycota: Agaricales), apart from the ectomycorrhizal Hygrophorus and lichen-forming taxa, are uncertain. New δ15N and δ13C values were obtained from 15 taxa under Hygrophoraceae collected in central Massachusetts and combined with isotopic datasets from five prior studies including a further 12 species using a data standardization method to allow cross-site comparison. Based on these data, we inferred the probable nutritional modes for… Expand
Stable isotope analyses reveal previously unknown trophic mode diversity in the Hymenochaetales.
TLDR
Overall, trophic mode diversity in the Hymenochaetales is greater than anticipated, and non-lignicolous ecological traits and biotrophic modes of nutrition are evolutionarily derived features. Expand
Isotopic evidence of biotrophy and unusual nitrogen nutrition in soil‐dwelling Hygrophoraceae
TLDR
The consistently high but variable δ15N values (10–20‰) of basidiocarps further indicate that N acquisition or processing differ from other fungi; it is suggested that N may be derived from acquisition of N via soil fauna high in the food chain. Expand
Systematics and diversification patterns of morphologically and ecologically diverse lineages of Agaricomycetes: Clavariaceae and Cantharellales
TLDR
Overall 126 molecular operational taxonomic units can be recognized in the Clavariaceae, roughly half of which are known only from environmental sequences, an estimate that exceeds the known number of species in the family. Expand
DNA barcoding and morphological studies reveal two new species of waxcap mushrooms (Hygrophoraceae) in Britain
TLDR
Analysis of sequences of the nuclear ITS DNA barcode region from Gliophorus europerplexus and related taxa confirms the phylogenetic distinctness of these lineages and demonstrated that the holotype of Hygrophorus perplexus, a North American species morphologically resembling G. euro perplexus, is phylogenetically divergent from all collections. Expand
Molecular phylogeny, morphology, pigment chemistry and ecology in Hygrophoraceae (Agaricales)
TLDR
Molecular phylogenies using 1–4 gene regions and information on ecology, morphology and pigment chemistry were used in a partial revision of the agaric family Hygro- phoraceae, retaining in the Hygrophoraceae the basal cuphophylloid grade comprising the genera Cuphophylla, Ampulloclitocybe and Cantharocybe, despite weak phylogenetic support. Expand
The ectomycorrhizal status of a tropical black bolete, Phlebopus portentosus, assessed using mycorrhizal synthesis and isotopic analysis
TLDR
It is concluded that Phlebopus portentosus could be an ECM fungus because of its ability to form ECM-like structures in greenhouse experiments and its stable isotopic patterns. Expand
A systematic, morphological and ecological overview of the Clavariaceae (Agaricales)
TLDR
A systematic and ecological overview of the Clavariaceae based on phylogenetic analysis of sequences of the nuclear large subunit ribosomal RNA (nLSU) suggests that most non-lignicolous species feature a biotrophic mode of nutrition. Expand
New species and reports of Cuphophyllus from northern North America compared with related Eurasian species
TLDR
Four gray or brown species of Cuphophyllus are described, two of them new species, restricted to arctic-alpine and northern boreal zones of North America, and their morphologically and phylogenetically related using multigene and nuc rDNA internal transcribed spacer ITS1-5.8S-ITS analyses to their similar, known counterparts. Expand
The diverse habitats of Hygrocybe – peeking into an enigmatic lifestyle
TLDR
The analysis shows that several of the selected Hygrocybe species can cope with a very wide range of habitats, and appear to prefer soils with low fertility, grassland over forests and temperate/boreal climates. Expand
Enzymatic activities and stable isotope patterns of ectomycorrhizal fungi in relation to phylogeny and exploration types in an afrotropical rain forest.
TLDR
It is hypothesized that phylogenetic affinities of ECM fungi are more important than ECM exploration type, soil horizon and host plant in explaining the differences in mineral nutrition of trees in an African lowland rainforest. Expand

Mycorrhizal vs saprotrophic status of fungi: the isotopic evidence
Summary • Relative abundances of carbon and nitrogen isotopes in fungal sporocarps are useful in assessing mycorrhizal or saprotrophic status, and might provide insights into the evolutionaryExpand
High concentration of basidiolichens in a single family of agaricoid mushrooms (Basidiomycota: Agaricales: Hygrophoraceae).
TLDR
Data indicate a transition from agaricoid-omphalinoid basidiomes observed in Arrhenia to stereoid-corticioid forms in Dictyonema, and support a previous suggestion of a connection between loss of clamp connections and lichenization, and indicate a remarkable evolutionary flexibility that appears to have developed in part as a consequence of symbiosis. Expand
One hundred and seventeen clades of euagarics.
TLDR
This study provides a first broad systematic treatment of the euagarics as they have recently emerged in phylogenetic systematics and recognizes eight major groups of homobasidiomycetes that cut across traditional lines of classification, in agreement with other recent phylogenetic studies. Expand
Carbon and nitrogen elemental and isotopic patterns in macrofungal sporocarps and trees in semiarid forests of the south‐western USA
TLDR
Assessment of the isotopic compositions of fungal sporocarps and their substrates is helpful for elucidating ecological relationships in semiarid forests and is particularly valuable in arid regions where the functional roles of fungi can be difficult to assess. Expand
Nitrogen isotopes in ectomycorrhizal sporocarps correspond to belowground exploration types
TLDR
It is proposed that fungal δ15N reflects sequestration of fungal nitrogen to build fungal biomass, and should accordingly reflect fungal exploration strategies and hyphal properties, and that species with hydrophobic hyphae or with rhizomorphs were 3–4‰ more enriched in 15N than taxa with hyd PHs or without rhzomorphs.

Ectomycorrhizal lifestyle in fungi: global diversity, distribution, and evolution of phylogenetic lineages
TLDR
In conclusion, EcM fungi are phylogenetically highly diverse, and molecular surveys particularly in tropical and south temperate habitats are likely to supplement to the present figures. Expand
Insights into nitrogen and carbon dynamics of ectomycorrhizal and saprotrophic fungi from isotopic evidence
TLDR
It is hypothesized that an apparent isotopic fractionation by mycorrhizal fungi during the transfer of nitrogen to plants may be attributed to enzymatic reactions within the fungi producing isotopically depleted amino acids, which are subsequently passed on to plant symbionts. Expand
Major clades of Agaricales: a multilocus phylogenetic overview
TLDR
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.

Ecology and diversity of waxcap (Hygrocybe spp.) Fungi
TLDR
Investigations into waxcap ecology to be correlated with parallel studies of other members of the soil biota and approaches such as isotope ratio mass spectrometry and the use of molecular biology techniques are beginning to provide an insight into the role played by these organisms in grassland ecosystems. Expand
Carbon sources for the Palaeozoic giant fungus Prototaxites inferred from modern analogues
TLDR
A saprotrophic fungal identity is supported for Prototaxites, which may have relied on deposits of algal-derived organic matter in floodplain environments that were less dominated by vascular plants than a straight reading of the macrofossil record might suggest. Expand
