Ganoderma is a large, diverse and globally-distributed genus in the Basidiomycota that includes species causing a white rot form of wood decay on a variety of tree species. For the past century, many studies of Ganoderma in North America and other regions of the world have used the name G. lucidum sensu lato for any laccate (shiny or varnished) Ganoderma species growing on hardwood trees or substrates. Molecular studies have established that G. lucidum sensu stricto (Curtis) Karst is native to… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Diversity of the Ganoderma species in Uruguay
TLDR
The results confirm the presence of four reddish laccate species first registered for Uruguay, and a taxonomic discussion regarding phylogenetic relationships and taxonomic status of Uruguayan Ganoderma species is presented.
Cultural characterization and chlamydospore function of the Ganodermataceae present in the eastern United States
TLDR
It is hypothesized that chlamydospores function as survival structures that serve as propagules resilient to adverse temperature conditions, especially heat in Ganoderma species collected from the United States.
Revision of Ganoderma species associated with stem rot of coconut palm
TLDR
A taxonomic reassessment of the species collected from infected coconut palms in India and also proposes two new species, Ganoderma keralense and G. pseudoapplanatum, which exhibited unique genetics and geographic distribution patterns.
The Ganoderma weberianum-resinaceum lineage: multilocus phylogenetic analysis and morphology confirm G. mexicanum and G. parvulum in the Neotropics
TLDR
The aim of the present study was to determine which species might lay behind the G. weberianum complex in the Neotropics, using morphological studies and phylogenetic inferences based on both single (ITS) and multilocus (ITS, rpb2, and tef1-α) sequences.
Species diversity of Basidiomycota
TLDR
It was found that the establishment of comprehensive and robust taxonomic systems based on a joint global initiative by mycologists could promote and standardize the recognition of taxa and illustrate a huge gap between the described and yet unknown diversity in Basidiomycota.
Ganodermataceae (Polyporales): Diversity in Greater Mekong Subregion countries (China, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam)
TLDR
An updated phylogeny for Ganodermataceae is presented based on nrLSU, ITS, nrSSU, TEF1 and RPB2 DNA sequence data and species relationships and classification are discussed.
Phylogenetic analyses and morphological characters reveal two new species of Ganoderma from Yunnan province, China
Abstract Ganodermadianzhongensesp. nov. and G.esculentumsp. nov. are proposed as two new species based on both phenotypic and genotypic evidences. Ganodermadianzhongense is characterized by the
Castanea henryi Roots Serve as Host for Ganoderma lucidum
A new fungal strain was isolated from a fruiting body of Ganoderma Karst. grown in Chongyi county, Jiangxi Province, China. Morphological characterization and ITS rDNA sequence analysis suggested
A global meta-analysis of ITS rDNA sequences from material belonging to the genus Ganoderma (Basidiomycota, Polyporales) including new data from selected taxa
TLDR
A metadata analysis of 3908 nuclear ribosomal internal transcribed spacer (ITS) rDNA sequences obtained from GenBank/ENA/DDBJ and UNITE was performed, demonstrating high efficacy in resolving relationships amongst most of the Ganoderma taxa; however, it was not equally useful at elucidating species barriers across the entire genus.
Ganoderma sessile is a fast polysaccharide producer among Ganoderma species
TLDR
G. sessile, a species frequently collected in America, showed to be a promising polysaccharide producer for the manufacture of dietary supplements, and strains were further distinguished by morphology and protein profiles.

Ganoderma multipileum, the correct name for 'G. lucidum' in tropical Asia.
TLDR
The forgotten name Ganoderma multipileum, presented over half a century ago from Taiwan, was found in this study as the earliest valid name for 'G. lucidum' known from tropical Asia.
Taxonomy of Ganoderma from southern South America: subgenus Ganoderma
TLDR
The objective was to evaluate relationships by analysing numerically morphological and isoenzymic data to discern the number of species occurring in southern South America, and their delimitation.
The Ganoderma weberianum-resinaceum lineage: multilocus phylogenetic analysis and morphology confirm G. mexicanum and G. parvulum in the Neotropics
TLDR
The aim of the present study was to determine which species might lay behind the G. weberianum complex in the Neotropics, using morphological studies and phylogenetic inferences based on both single (ITS) and multilocus (ITS, rpb2, and tef1-α) sequences.
Genetic variability of Ganoderma zonatum infecting palms in Florida
TLDR
Variation among these three genomic regions was minimal, and the variability observed was not related to palm host or geographic region within Florida, so G. zonatum does not appear to represent a species complex.

The Species Identity of the Widely Cultivated Ganoderma, ‘G. lucidum’ (Ling-zhi), in China
TLDR
The identity of the Chinese ‘G. lucidum’ (Ling-zhi) is considered conspecific with G. sichuanense, and morphological descriptions and illustrations are provided in addition to discussion of nomenclature implications.
Cultural studies and genetics of sexuality of Ganoderma lucidum and G. tsugae in relation to the taxonomy of the G. lucidum complex.
TLDR
The authenticity of the two widely distributed wood-rotting species was demonstrated by comparative studies, and mating systems were determined for both species as heterothallic and tetrapolar.
