The identity of mycorrhizal fungi associated with the achlorophyllous orchid Epipogium roseum was investigated by DNA analysis. The fungi were isolated from each coiled hypha (peloton), and the ITS region of nuclear rDNA was sequenced. Phylogenetic analysis based on the neighbor-joining method showed that all the isolates clustered with fungi belonging to Psathyrella or Coprinus in Coprinaceae. Those fungi are known as saprobes, using dead organic materials for a nutritive source. Large… Expand
Identification of mycobionts in an achlorophyllous orchid, Cremastra aphylla (Orchidaceae), based on molecular analysis and basidioma morphology
Abstract Mycorrhizal fungi were isolated and cultured from rhizomes of mycoheterotrophic Cremastra aphylla (Orchidaceae) plants collected in 3 sites across Japan. In total, 5 Cr. aphylla individualsExpand
Identification of a mycorrhizal fungus in Epipogium roseum (Orchidaceae) from morphological characteristics of basidiomata
TLDR
Morphological and anatomical characteristics of the basidioma mostly accorded with those of Coprinellus disseminatus, and it was concluded that C. disseminatus is one of the mycobionts of E. roseum. Expand
Ectomycorrhizal Inocybe species associate with the mycoheterotrophic orchid Epipogium aphyllum but not its asexual propagules.
TLDR
It is revealed that thick rhizomes were densely colonized by fungi bearing clamp-connections and dolipores, i.e. basidiomycetes, and surrounding trees are probably the ultimate carbon source. Expand
The giant mycoheterotrophic orchid Erythrorchis altissima is associated mainly with a divergent set of wood-decaying fungi.
TLDR
The results show that E. altissima is associated with a wide range of wood- and soil-inhabiting fungi, the majority of which are wood-decaying taxa, which enables this giant orchid to access a large carbon pool in woody debris and has been key to the evolution of such a large mycoheterotroph.

Ectomycorrhiza synthesis and basidiome formation of an orchid symbiont of the genus Thelephora on Quercus serrata
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis indicated that the related sequences came from ectomycorrhizae of trees of the Salicaceae, Pinaceae, and Fagaceae distributed in East Asia, the USA, central Africa, and Europe. Expand
Saprotrophic fungal symbionts in tropical achlorophyllous orchids
TLDR
It is speculated that transition from saprotrophy to mycorrhizal status is common in fungal evolution, and some unexpected fungi occasionally encountered in plant roots should not be discarded as ‘molecular scraps’, since these facultatively biotrophic encounters may evolve into mycorRhizal symbionts in some other plants.

Fungal Diversity and Community Composition of Culturable Fungi in Stanhopea trigrina Cast Gibberellin Producers
TLDR
It is found that S. tigrina possess a significant fungal diversity that could be a rich source of fungal metabolites with the potential to develop biotechnological approaches oriented to revert the threatened state of this orchid in the near future. Expand
Identification and symbiotic ability of Psathyrellaceae fungi isolated from a photosynthetic orchid, Cremastra appendiculata (Orchidaceae).
TLDR
This report is the first of a mycorrhizal symbiosis between a fungus in Psathyrellaceae and a photosynthetic orchid, revealing a new pathway to full mycoheterotrophy and contributing to the understanding of the evolution of myco heterosexuality. Expand
Independent recruitment of saprotrophic fungi as mycorrhizal partners by tropical achlorophyllous orchids.
TLDR
It is proposed that temperature and moisture in rainforests, but not in most temperate forests, may favour sufficient saprotrophic activity to support development of mycoheterotrophs. Expand
The rare Australian epiphytic orchid Sarcochilus weinthalii associates with a single species of Ceratobasidium
TLDR
The mycorrhizal fungal partner of the Sarcochilus weinthalii species was determined through extraction and sequencing of DNA from both colonised orchid roots and pure fungal cultures grown out from orchid Roots suggesting that the orchid displays narrow fungal specificity. Expand

Identification of mycorrhizal fungi from single pelotons of Dactylorhiza majalis (Orchidaceae) using single‐strand conformation polymorphism and mitochondrial ribosomal large subunit DNA sequences
TLDR
These analyses revealed two different peloton‐forming fungi in samples from D. majalis, which sometimes occurred together as a single two‐taxa peloton within the same cortex cell and was distantly related to Laccaria. Expand

TLDR
It is argued that these orchids are cheaters because they do not provide fixed carbon to associated fungi, which suggests that mycorrhizae, like other ancient mutualisms, are susceptible to cheating. Expand
Divergence in mycorrhizal specialization within Hexalectris spicata (Orchidaceae), a nonphotosynthetic desert orchid.
TLDR
Preliminary evidence is provided for divergence in mycorrhizal specificity between the Sebacinaceae and Orchidaceae, which are closely related orchid taxa and have contributed to the evolutionary diversification of theOrchidaceae. Expand

TLDR
The results provide the first definitive chronology of the development of N. nidus-avis and establish its critical dependence upon, and specificity for, the locally distributed Sebacina-like fungus that is required for germination and growth. Expand
