Three new species and one new variety of bioluminescent Mycena collected from Peninsular Malaysia are described herein. All new species belong to Mycena sect. Calodontes in what is known as the Mycena pura complex. Comprehensive descriptions, photographs, illustrations and comparisons with phenetically similar species are provided. Molecular sequences data from the nuclear internal transcribed spacers (ITS-1 and ITS-2, including the 5.8S rRNA) were used to infer relationships within sect… 

New species and records of bioluminescent Mycena from Mexico

ABSTRACT Seven species of bioluminescent fungi are recorded from the cloud forests in Mexico. Six represent new species belonging to the genus Mycena, whereas Mycena globulispora is a new

Bioluminescent fungi from Peninsular Malaysia—a taxonomic and phylogenetic overview

The phylogeny of the Malaysian bioluminescent fungi and closely related taxa were evaluated with molecular data from the nuclear ribosomal large subunit, RNA polymerase 2 second largest subunit (RPB2) and internal transcribed spacers (ITS) gene regions and DNA sequences data support the circumscription of species based on the morphological species concept, but was unable to fully support the current sectional delimitation of genus Mycena.

Four new species of Mycena sect. Calodontes (Agaricales, Mycenaceae) from northeast China

During examination of specimens collected in coniferous forests or mixed broadleaf-conifer forests in temperate regions of China, additional taxa assigned to sect.

Porpoloma aranzadii is a Synonym of Mycena dura Further Notes in Mycena sect. Calodontes

Porpoloma aranzadii sequences are encompassed in the M. dura clade and their synonymy is proposed, and the new combination M. brunnea is proposed to formally refer to this clade at species rank.

Two new species of Panellus (Agaricales, Basidiomycota) from China

Two new species of Panellus, P. bambusicola and P. yunnanensis, are described and illustrated from Yunnan Province, southwestern China and formed two distinct phylogenetic lineages based on the internal transcribed spacer regions (ITS) and nuclear large subunit ribosomal RNA gene regions (nLSU) sequences.

Records of lignicolous agaricoid fungi (Agaricales, Basidiomycota) from Mexico

This work reveals and confirms some lignicolous species present in Mexico with both morphological and molecular data and confirms that Mexico is a Nearctic and Neotropical convergence zone of fungal taxa from both regions.

Mycena section Sacchariferae: three new species with basal discs from China

Three novel Mycena species that grow exclusively on specific substrata in southern China are presented, including Castanea mollissima fruits, Fagaceae leaves and Lauraceae twigs or leaves, confirming the morphology-based classification of these taxa.

Notes, outline and divergence times of Basidiomycota

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.

Genetics and hybrid breeding of Pleurotus pulmonarius: heterosis, heritability and combining ability

This research involved an initial attempt to use a broad range of analyses and the systematic integration of genetics and breeding to assist in generating superior hybrids of P. pulmonarius by establishing a systematic scheme using genetics and hybrid breeding.

Mycena chlorophos, which is a luminous fungus that emits a bright green light from its pileus for about 2 days at approximately 20°C and high relative humidity, was aheterogeneous and the distribution of bioluminescent tissues in the whole pileus and its sections was heterogeneous.



A comparison between ITS phylogenetic relationships and morphological species recognition within Mycena sect. Calodontes in Northern Europe

It is shown that most Calodontes form a monophyletic group including a few North and South American collections, but that this cannot be conclusively shown when an additional North American sequence is added.

Luminescent Mycena: new and noteworthy species

Seven species of Mycena are reported as luminescent, representing specimens collected in Belize, Brazil, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Japan, Japan (Bonin Islands), Malaysia, Malaysia and Puerto Rico, bringing the total to 71 known bioluminescent species of fungi.

A new bioluminescent species of Mycena sect. Exornatae from Kerala State, India.

Phylogenetic analyses based on ITS rDNA sequences using maximum parsimony and maximum likelihood methods support M. deeptha as a distinct species belonging to a clade containing M. chlorophos, a wellknown luminescent species of sect.

Amyloidity is not diagnostic for species in the Mycena pearsoniana complex (Mycena sectio Calodontes)

The authors' phylogenetic analysis of 91 ITS sequences from European, North and South American Calodontes collections shows that European collections identified as M. pearsoniana fall into two well-supported sibling clades together with both inamyloid and weakly amyloid North American collections, and raises doubt about the taxonomic value of this trait in Mycena systematics.

Erratum to: Mycena kentingensis, a new species of luminous mushroom in Taiwan, with reference to its culture method

Phylogenetic analyses by Bayesian and maximum likelihood methods showed that M. kentingensis is close to M. stylobates and M. adscendens, a new luminous mushroom discovered in the tropical forest of Kenting National Park in Taiwan.


A multiple-choice key for the identification of cultures of 149 species of wood-inhabiting Hymenomycetes, whose cultural characters have been published previously, is based on the following


Variability associated with sporocarp maturation and collection replication was insignificant and it did not diminish the taxonomic potential of laccase and tyrosinase spot tests.
