Species within the genera Tomentella are among the most important ECM in forests. However, our knowledge about their functional characteristics is still rather limited. The ectomycorrhizae of Tomentella badia on Picea abies are described here in detail and compared to the non-identified ECM Piceirhiza obscura . A pseudoparenchymatous mantle formed by epidermoid cells is covered by heaps of epidermoid cells. This mantle type is regarded as a new one and designated as mantle type R. Many cells…

Enhancing our understanding of anatomical diversity in Tomentella ectomycorrhizas: characterization of six new morphotypes
Six Tomentella morphotypes were morpho-anatomically characterized for the first time and shared anatomical features common to tomentelloid ectomycorrhizas fungi, expanding the understanding of the diversity of this widely distributed ectomyCorrhizal genus.
Diversity of ectomycorrhizal Thelephoraceae in Tuber melanosporum-cultivated orchards of Northern Spain
The results confirm the diversity and abundance of this fungal family in the ectomycorrhizal community of black truffle plantations, generally established in Mediterranean areas.
Ectomycorrhizal community composition of organic and mineral soil horizons in silver fir (Abies alba Mill.) stands
Vertical ectomycorrhizal (ECM) community composition was assessed on silver fir in beech-silver fir forests in Bosnia and Herzegovina, indicating high potential for diversity of ECM fungi in silver fir stands.
Traits and tradeoffs among non‐native ectomycorrhizal fungal symbionts affect pine seedling establishment in a Hawaiian coinvasion landscape
Pine invasions lead to losses of native biodiversity and ecosystem function, but pine invasion success is often linked to coinvading non‐native ectomycorrhizal (EM) fungi. How the community


Ectomycorrhizae of Tomentella albomarginata (Thelephoraceae) on Scots pine
The ectomycorrhizae of T. albomarginata are characterized by a hyphal net lying on a pseudoparenchymatous mantle surface, by tubular outgrowths of irregularly angular mantle cells, and by clamp-bearing emanating hyphae.
Morphological-anatomical characterization and molecular identification of Tomentella stuposa ectomycorrhizae and related anatomotypes
Ten tomentelloid EM isolates collected from Populus alba, Quercus cerris and Picea abies stands in Hungary and Germany are characterized and documented by morphological-anatomical methods using light microscopy and a comparison of the recently known tomenteloid EM to T. stuposa is presented.
Diversity and abundance of resupinate thelephoroid fungi as ectomycorrhizal symbionts in Swedish boreal forests
Tomentelloid fungi appear to be relatively common ectomycorrhizal symbionts with a wide distribution in Swedish coniferous forests, in accordance with accumulating data that fungal species which lack conspicuous sporocarps may be of considerable importance in EM communities.
Piceirhiza nigra, an ectomycorrhiza on Picea abies formed by a species of Thelephoraceae
SUMMARYEctomycorrhizas of Picea abies (L.) Karst., previously described as Piceirhiza nigra, are shown to be formed bya member of the Thelephoraceae by virtue of the presence of thelephoric acid.Key

Studies on ectomycorrhiza
Translocation of labelled phosphorus through rhizomorphs of P. tinctorius into spruce needles was demonstrated and revealed a higher structural differentiation than those of T. terrestris, which was observed to accumulate in the needles 2–3 days after application.
Ectomycorrhizal fungi of the Seychelles: diversity patterns and host shifts from the native Vateriopsis seychellarum (Dipterocarpaceae) and Intsia bijuga (Caesalpiniaceae) to the introduced Eucalyptus robusta (Myrtaceae), but not Pinus caribea (Pinaceae).
The thelephoroid, euagaric, boletoid and hymenochaetoid clades of basidiomycetes dominated the ECM fungal community of native trees, and two species of Annulatascaceae were identified and described as ECM symbionts of V. seychellarum.

A more detailed study was performed on Hygrophorus olivaceoalbus ECM to clarify its type of root colonization and revealed intercellular hyphae within the meristematic zone but also intracellular hyPHae within root cortex cells which grow towards and into large tannin droplets—phenolic compounds usually deposited as defensive aids—to finally fill them completely.
