This study investigated the morphological characteristics and molecular phylogenetic relationships among lethal Amanita species occurring in East Asia. The results revealed that at least nine phylogenetic taxa exist in the region. Among them, five were identical to previously known morphological taxa including A. exitialis, A. fuliginea, A. subjunquillea, A. subjunquillea var. alba and A. virosa; three new taxa, A. fuligineoides, A. rimosa and A. pallidorosea were described and illustrated here… Expand

Study of three interesting Amanita species from Thailand: Morphology, multiple-gene phylogeny and toxin analysis
TLDR
The position in the phylogeny indicates that A. ballerina is either an important link in the evolution of the deadly Amanita sect, or a member of a new section also including A. zangii and two other species, which form a well-supported clade sister to the Phalloideae sensu Bas 1969. Expand
Morphology, Multilocus Phylogeny, and Toxin Analysis Reveal Amanita albolimbata, the First Lethal Amanita Species From Benin, West Africa
TLDR
Morphology and molecular phylogenetic analyses based on five genes (ITS, nrLSU, rpb2, tef1-α, and β-tubulin) revealed that A. albolimbata is a distinct species and represents the first lethal species of A. sect. Expand
Defining the phylogenetic position of Amanita species from Andean Colombia
TLDR
This study constructed the first comprehensive phylogeny including ECM species from Colombia collected in native Quercus humboldtii forests and in introduced Pinus patula plantations, allowing the Colombian collections in a coherent infrageneric level and to contribute to the knowledge of local Amanita diversity. Expand
Taxonomy and phylogenetic position of species of Amanita sect. Vaginatae s.l. from tropical Africa
TLDR
It was found that all five species with both an annulus and commonly present clamp connections in the basidioma were clustered in the sect. Expand
The genus Phylloporus (Boletaceae, Boletales) from China: morphological and multilocus DNA sequence analyses
TLDR
Species of the genus Phylloporus in China were investigated based on morphology and molecular phylogenetic analysis of a three-locus (nrLSU, ITS and tef-1a) DNA sequence dataset, showing that Pylloporus species in East Asia and Southeast Asia are mostly closely related and species pairs or closely related species between EastAsia and North/Central America are relatively common. Expand
Multi-locus phylogeny of lethal amanitas: Implications for species diversity and historical biogeography
TLDR
The cryptic diversity found in this study indicates that the species diversity of lethal amanitas is strongly underestimated under the current taxonomy, and the importance of both dispersal and vicariance in shaping the intercontinental distributions of these ectomycorrhizal fungi is indicated.

Taxonomic Study of Amanita Subgenus Lepidella and Three Unrecorded Amanita Species in Korea
Abstract Amanita Pers. is a well-known monophyletic mushroom genus with a broad distribution. However, the diversity of Korean Amanita species has been underestimated, and most taxonomic studiesExpand
Two new species of Amanitasect.Phalloideae from Africa, one of which is devoid of amatoxins and phallotoxins
Abstract Two new species of Amanitasect.Phalloideae are described from tropical Africa (incl. Madagascar) based on both morphological and molecular (DNA sequence) data. Amanitabweyeyensissp. nov. wasExpand
The family Amanitaceae: molecular phylogeny, higher-rank taxonomy and the species in China
TLDR
One-hundred and sixty-two species of Amanitaceae known from China are treated in this study, including 50 novel species and 112 known taxa, and it is clear that Catatrama is closely related to Limacella, however, the phylogenetic relationships among these genera remain largely unresolved. Expand
Lethal Amanita species in China
TLDR
A 5-gene phylogeny (nuc rDNA region encompassing the internal transcribed spacers 1 and 2 with the 5.8S r DNA, the D1–D3 domains of nuc 28S rDNA, and partial RNA polymerase II second largest subunit) is used to investigate the phylogenetic lineages and species delimitation in this section. Expand
