  author={Xiang-Guang Ma and Chang-Lin Zhao},
  journal={Mycological Progress},
A new wood-inhabiting fungal genus, Crepatura, typified by C. ellipsospora sp. nov., is proposed based on a combination of morphological features and molecular evidence. The genus is characterized by an annual growth habit, resupinate basidiocarps with smooth to irregularly tuberculate hymenial surface, a monomitic hyphal system with thick-walled generative hyphae bearing both clamp connections and simple septa and ellipsoid, hyaline, thick-walled, smooth, negative in Melzer’s, acyanophilous… Expand

Morphological characters and phylogenetic analyses reveal two new species of Peniophorella from southern China
Two new wood-inhabiting fungal species, Peniophorella fissurata and P. yunnanensis, are proposed based on a combination of morphological features and molecular evidence and phylogenetic analyses showed that P. fISSurata was sister to P. pubera. Expand
Poriella subacida Gen. & Comb Nov. for Perenniporia subacida (Peck) Donk
Morphologically, “Poriella” is characterized by a di- to trimitic hyphal system, non-truncate basidiospores, and strongly dextrinoid, cyanophilic skeletal hyphae, and sister to the “Yuchengia narymica” lineage. Expand
Global Phylogeny and Taxonomy of the Wood-Decaying Fungal Genus Phlebiopsis (Polyporales, Basidiomycota)
An in-depth study of the phylogeny and taxonomy of the corticioid genus Phlebiopsis (Phanerochaetaceae) was conducted and six new taxa are described, illustrated, and compared and contrasted to morphologically similar species. Expand

Hyphodontia zhixiangii sp. nov. (Schizoporaceae, Basidiomycota) from Uzbekistan
Hyphodontia zhixiangii is described as a new species from three Uzbek specimens recently collected on Juniperus . This species is characterized by annual, resupinate basidiocarps with a grandinioidExpand
Global diversity and taxonomy of the Inonotus linteus complex (Hymenochaetales, Basidiomycota): Sanghuangporus gen. nov., Tropicoporus excentrodendri and T. guanacastensis gen. et spp. nov., and 17 new combinations
Morphological and phylogenetic evidence indicates that Clades B and C are new genera, and Sanghuangporus and Tropicoporus are introduced in this study, which indicates that Inonotus is a polyphyletic genus comprising at least three clades. Expand
Obba and Sebipora, new polypore genera related to Cinereomyces and Gelatoporia (Polyporales, Basidiomycota)
Two new genera are described in the Cinereomyces clade: Obba to incorporate C. rivulosa and a new austral species, Obba valdiviana, known from southern Argentina and recorded here also from Tasmania, and Sebipora to accommodate a new species from tropical Asia, S. aquosa. Expand
Polypores and genus concepts in Phanerochaetaceae (Polyporales, Basidiomycota)
We explored whether DNA-phylogeny-based and morphology-based genus concepts can be reconciled in the basidiomycete family Phanerochaetaceae. Our results show that macromorphology of fruiting bodiesExpand
Global diversity and molecular systematics of Wrightoporia s.l. (Russulales, Basidiomycota)
According to phylogenetic and morphological evidence, species previously treated in Wrightoporia were transferred to Amylonotus, Amylosporus and the new genera, or were retained as members of Wrightopori s.l. Expand
The white-rotting genus Phanerochaete is polyphyletic and distributed throughout the phleboid clade of the Polyporales (Basidiomycota)
A denser taxon and gene sampling in the phleboid clade will be needed to settle the precise taxonomic affiliation of many of the species presently referred to as Phanerochaete, and numerous nomenclatural changes are doubtlessly looming on the horizon. Expand
Two new Fomitopsis species from southern China based on morphological and molecular characters
Phylogenetic analysis based on combined ITS and nLSU sequences suggest that the two new species belong in the Fomitopsis sensu stricto group within the Antrodia clade. Expand
Taxonomy and phylogeny of Ceriporia (Polyporales, Basidiomycota) with an emphasis of Chinese collections
The phylogeny shows that Ceriporia is not monophyletic, C. viridans as morphologically circumscribed are polyphyletic and presence or absence of hymenial cystidia is not a useful character in delimiting species relationships in Ceripia. Expand
Revisiting the taxonomy of Phanerochaete (Polyporales, Basidiomycota) using a four gene dataset and extensive ITS sampling.
The placement of Leptoporus mollis along with other potential brown-rot species in the phlebioid clade suggests that, in addition to the Antrodia clade,brown-rot fungi may have evolved more than once in Polyporales. Expand
