Helicomyxa everhartioides , a new helicosporous sporodochial hyphomy-cete from Taiwan with relationships to the Hyaloriaceae ( Auriculariales , Basidiomycota )

  title={Helicomyxa everhartioides , a new helicosporous sporodochial hyphomy-cete from Taiwan with relationships to the Hyaloriaceae ( Auriculariales , Basidiomycota )},
  author={Roland Kirschner and Chee Jen Chen},
A hyphomycete producing hemi-circinate, hyaline, aseptate conidia from clamped conidiophores in gelatinous sporodochia was discovered in Taiwan. In view of its unique combination of characteristics, the new genus Helicomyxa and the new species H. everhartioides are proposed. Morphological and ultrastructural studies as well as an analysis of partial nuclear large subunit ribosomal DNA sequences suggest a relationship to teleomorphs belonging to the Hyaloriaceae in the Auriculariales.

Ovipoculum album, a new anamorph with gelatinous cupulate bulbilliferous conidiomata from China and with affinities to the Auriculariales (Basidiomycota)

An anamorphic fungus forming laterally attached, cupulate, gelatinous, hyaline to white conidiomata producing bulbils from clamped hyphae was collected on dead bamboo culms in southwestern China, and microscopical and DNA sequence analysis revealed a phylogenetic relationship with members of the Auriculariales.

Molecular and morphological evidence reveal a new genus and species in Auriculariales from tropical China

The establishment of the new genus Grammatus labyrinthinus is proposed based on DNA sequences data and morphological characteristics and it is shown that G. labyrinthinus belongs to Auriculariaceae in which it has an isolated position.

Competing sexual-asexual generic names in Agaricomycotina (Basidiomycota) with recommendations for use

Generic names of the Agaricomycotina (Basidiomycota) were evaluated to determine synonymy based on their type and recommendations are made for which generic name to use.

Molecular techniques revolutionize knowledge of basidiomycete evolution

A fundamental improvement in the understanding of evolution of basidiomycetes has been achieved and it is anticipated that numerous new taxa at different taxonomic levels will be recognized based on integrated approaches in the coming years.

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.

Impact of DNA sequence-data on the taxonomy of anamorphic fungi

The historical establishment and limitations of the dual system of classification is reviewed, the possible utilities of DNA sequence-data in developing a system of Classification based on evolutionary relationships are narrated, and emerging phylogenetic and nomenclatural scenarios in the Botryosphaeriales, Chaetospha aeriales, Fusarium graminearum, pestalotiopsis-like anamorphs, and the Mycosphaerella complex are illustrated.

Studies in the Stypella vermiformis group (Auriculariales, Basidiomycota)

Morphological and molecular phylogenetic studies of specimens from the Northern Hemisphere corresponding to the current concept of S. vermiformis uncovered three species from two newly described genera, which are distributed in temperate Europe and has small-sized basidia and basidiospores.

A new pycnidial fungus with clamped hyphae from Central America

A new genus and species is described, being the first taxon of the Auriculariales to be known which forms pycnidia, which belongs to the Basidiomycota, Agaricomycotina.

The synnematous anamorph of Exidia saccharina (Auriculariales, Basidiomycota): morphology, conidiogenesis and association with bark beetles

The newly discovered synnematous growth and annellidic conidiogenesis of Exidia saccharina are similar to those of Gloeosynnema species (basidiomycetous hyphomycETes), which differ by details of septal clamp connections.



Cuniculitrema polymorpha (Tremellales, gen. nov. and sp. nov.), a heterobasidiomycete vectored by bark beetles, which is the teleomorph of Sterigmatosporidium polymorphuma

In a study of the mycobiota associated with bark beetles, a dimorphic fungus producing longitudinally septate basidia of the Tremella-type and yeast cells budding off from stalks was collected, and it was revealed that this fungus represents the teleomorph of Sterigmatosporidium polymorphum.

Pseudohelicomyces, a new anamorph of Psilocybe

Pseudohelicomyces albus is the anamorphic stage of Psilocybe merdaria and shows similarities to Helicomyces.

A new species of Everhartia associated with leaf spots of Phoenix hanceana from Hong Kong

Everhartia phoenicis is the only species in the genus known to be pathogenic, and differs from other species of Everhartia in producing symmetric, hyaline, aseptate, horseshoe-shaped conidia.

A new Chionosphaera species associated with conifer inhabiting bark beetles * * Part 191 in the seri

An undescribed species of the heterobasidiomycetous genus Chionosphaera is carried by the bark beetles Dryocoetus autographus, Hylurgops palliatus, Ips acuminatus, Ips sexdentatus, Suffolk, Ips typographus and Orthotomicus laricis infesting conifers in Europe.

The phylogenetic position of selected lichenicolous fungi: Hobsonia, Illosporium, and Marchandiomyces

Phylogenetic relationships in Auriculariales and related groups: hypotheses derived from nuclear ribosomal DNA sequences

The Sebacinaceae, including the genera Sebacina, Efibulobasidium, Tremelloscypha, and Craterocolla, was confirmed as a monophyletic group, which appeared distant from other taxa ascribed to the Auriculariales.

Delortia palmicola and two new species from wood submerged in a freshwater stream in Australia

Delortia, represented by the type, D. palmicola, is redescribed from fresh decaying palm material collected in north Queensland, Australia. Two new species, D. tumidoapicis and D. aquatica, collected

Phylogenetic relationships in the mushroom genus Coprinus and dark-spored allies based on sequence data from the nuclear gene coding for the large ribosomal subunit RNA: divergent domains, outgroups, and monophyly.

Phylogenetic analyses employing topological constraints suggest that none of the major taxonomic systems proposed for subgeneric classification is able to completely reflect phylogenetic relationships in Coprinus.
