The traditional medicinal fungus, Lingzhi, has long been considered to be Ganoderma lucidum, but was recently described as G. lingzhi based on both morphological and molecular data. Months earlier than this description, the species was identified as G. sichuanense by another research group. A sequenced epitype for G. sichuanense was selected that, if accepted, meant that it became a synonym of, and an earlier name for, G. lingzhi. However, the holotype of G. sichuanense is well developed with… 
High phenotypic plasticity of Ganoderma sinense (Ganodermataceae, Polyporales) in China
TLDR
A phylogenetic tree for Ganoderma based on ITS, SSU, LSU and RPB2 sequence data is provided and the taxonomic status of G. sinense is discussed.
High diversity of Ganoderma and Amauroderma (Ganodermataceae, Polyporales) in Hainan Island, China
TLDR
This paper surveyed species of Amauroderma and Ganoderma in Hainan Island in Southern China and provided a phylogeny for the two genera based on ITS sequence data and the taxonomic status of the species.
A new record of Ganodermatropicum (Basidiomycota, Polyporales) for Thailand and first assessment of optimum conditions for mycelia production
TLDR
This is the first report on the successful growing conditions for mycelial production, but unfortunately fruiting could not be achieved.
Ganoderma (Ganodermataceae, Basidiomycota) Species from the Greater Mekong Subregion
TLDR
This comprehensive study reports 22 Ganoderma species from the Greater Mekong Subregion, encompassing tropical parts of Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, and temperate areas in Yunnan Province, China, which are an important pathogen on arboreal plant hosts.
ITS barcoding-based species identification for Sanghuangporus (Basidiomycota), a genus of medicinal mushrooms
“Sanghuang” is a kind of important medicinal mushrooms and taxonomically represented by members in the fungal genus Sanghuangporus. Species of Sanghuangporus referred to medicinal studies and
Addressing widespread misidentifications of traditional medicinal mushrooms in Sanghuangporus (Basidiomycota) through ITS barcoding and designation of reference sequences
TLDR
This work separates the newly described Sanghuangporus subbaumii from S. baumii and treats S. toxicodendri as a later synonym of S. quercicola, and provides a practical method for ITS barcoding-based species identification of Sanghiungporus and will promote medicinal studies and commercial development from taxonomically correct material.
The Genus Pachyma (Syn. Wolfiporia) Reinstated and Species Clarification of the Cultivated Medicinal Mushroom “Fuling” in China
TLDR
It is confirmed that the widely cultivated “Fuling” Pachyma hoelen in East Asia is not conspecific with the North American Wolfiporia cocos, and it seems that PachyMA cocos is a species complex, and that three species exist in North America.
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.
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.
Identifying the “Mushroom of Immortality”: Assessing the Ganoderma Species Composition in Commercial Reishi Products
TLDR
The results indicate that the content of these products vary and that better labeling is needed to inform consumers before these products are ingested or marketed as medicine, and that these exotic species to natural ecosystems needs investigation.

An assessment of the taxonomy and chemotaxonomy of Ganoderma
TLDR
It is proposed that all important names in Ganoderma should be epitypified by fresh collections for which living cultures should be made available and that these should be examined by a combination of morphological, chemotaxonomic and molecular phylogenetic methods to attain a more stable taxonomy.
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.

So far as we know the earliest record of Lingzhi (Ganoderma lucidum) was in 《Shen Nong Materia Medica, A. D. 102—200》 of E. Han Dynasty. But the medicinaⅡ use of Linghi was known to Chinese ancestors
What is the Chinese “Lingzhi”? – a taxonomic mini-review
TLDR
Molecular phylogenetic evidence showed that G. lingzhi occurs in natural environments in China but also in the highlands of southwestern China, where it has been commercially cultivated, and nucleotide sequences of more informative DNA markers should be used to delimit the species in the complex in the near future.
