Mating compatibility studies using strains from 170 North American collections in the Pleurotus ostreatus complex reveal three intersterile species of oyster mushrooms in the United States and Cana... 
Notes on mating systems of Auriscalpium vulgare and A. villipes
The geographical range of in vitro sexually compatible populations of Auriscalpium vulgare is extended to include Asia, Europe, western and eastern North America, and Central America and A. villipes shows a bifactorial mating system. Expand
Reports on long-distance sexual compatibility in Agaricales
Several patterns of long-distance in vitro sexual compatibility are demonstrated for Agaricales and distribution and systematics of Pleurotopsis longinqua are discussed. Expand
A New species of Pleurotus
It is shown that Pleurotus abieticola is reproductively isolated from other Pleu- rotus species, and the combination of differences in morphology, repro- ductive isolation, substrate preference and DNA quence justifies the proposal of a new species. Expand
Intersterility groups of Pleurotus ostreatus complex in Iran
Mating compatibility studies using Iranian collections of Pleurotus ostreatus complex revealed three intersterility species in Iran, which showed compatibility between commercial strains of the ambiguous species, P. florida and P. pulmonarius. Expand
Mating systems of some putative polypore — agaric relatives
Mating systems are reported for taxa of polypores and agarics considered related. Taxa areDictyopanus pusillus, Favolus alveolaris, F. tenuiculus, Lentinus bertierii, L. crinitis, L. punctaticeps, L.Expand
Coleoptera Associated with the Oyster Mushroom, Pleurotus ostreatus Fries, in North America
A checklist of the beetles known to occur in and on the oyster mushroom, Pleurotus ostreatus Fries, with emphasis on those occurring in the southeastern United States. Expand
Ecogeographical variation in the Pleurotus eryngii complex in Israel
The geographical distribution and ecological habitats of the Pleurotus eryngii complex in Israel are described from a study of 60 genotypes from 10 populations and there was a high correlation between a coefficient of growth and the mean colony diameter growth rate. Expand
Transatlantic disjunction in fleshy fungi III: Gymnopus confluens
Phylogeographic data indicate that DNA differences consistently exist between the North American and European allopatric populations of Gymnopus confluens. Conversely, pairing experiments show thatExpand
Interspecific Genetic Variability of the Oyster Mushroom Pleurotus ostreatusAs Revealed by Allozyme Gene Analysis
The low level of inbreeding suggests that the P. ostreatus populations are panmictic, and the main reproduction mode involves basidiospores dispersing at long distances. Expand
The genus Pleurotus in Argentina
It is concluded that in Argentina there are, so far, six species of Pleurotus, namely P. djamor, the latter with three varieties: var. Expand


The Pleurotus Ostreatus-Sapidus Species Complex
SUMMARYTwo macroscopically indistinguishable, noninterbreeding populations of edible oyster mushrooms were studied. These were determined to be Pleurotos ostreatus which was found only on Populus t...
Speciation and species concepts in the Collybia dryophila complex
Mating compatibility studies show that all members of the C. dryophila complex have a heterothallic tetramer and this indicates that species concepts for species separation andciation were investigated were incorrect. Expand
Speciation in "Pleurotus"
The gradual genetic isolation which precedes speciation can be readily observed in the genus Pleurotus. Strains of P. ostreatus originating from different parts of the world and growing on differen...
Interspecific allozyme variation within the fungal genus Pleurotus
Several isolates originally described as one species based on morphology were classified as another based on electrophoretic banding patterns, suggesting lack of congruence between data sets may help to explain the taxonomic difficulties within the genus Pleurotus. Expand
Genetic Diversity Between Isolates of Pleurotus Ostreatus as Revealed by Isozyme Analysis
The results indicate the tremendous genetic diversity that exists within Pleurotus ostreatus and may be appropriately used to produce new hybrids by crossing the requisite monokaryons. Expand
Taxonomic relationships within the fungal genus Pleurotus as determined by isoelectric focusing analysis of enzyme patterns
Isoenzymes from 23 isolates belonging to the fungal genus Pleurotus, subdivision Basidiomycotina, were examined by polyacrylamide gel isoelectric focusing and protein blotting, and the resulting dendrogram of taxonomic distances demonstrated the suitability of enzyme isoeLECTric focusing for use in systematics.
