Abstract The genus Macrolepiota (Agaricales, Basidiomycota) is easy to recognize at the genus level because of big, fleshy basidiocarps with squamules covering the pileus; a single or double annulus; and big, thick-walled basidiospores with a germ pore. However, morphological identification is often unreliable in Macrolepiota due to similar morphological features among species. Due to the uncertainty of previous morphological identification in the genus Macrolepiota, it is necessary to re…

The Impact of Drying Temperature on Basidiospore Size
Fungal taxonomy research, and specifically the study of macro and micro morphological characteristics, requires precise temperature control. This is because variation in temperature can affect


The genus Macrolepiota (Agaricaceae, Basidiomycota) in China
Species of the genus Macrolepiota (Agaricaceae) in China were investigated on the basis of morphology and DNA sequences data to support the new species delimitations and to test the conspecificity between the Chinese specimens and their relatives from other continents.
Phylogeny and taxonomy of Macrolepiota (Agaricaceae)
The position and composition of Macrolepiota within the Agaricaceae and its phylogenetic relationships with other members of the family were investigated, using both molecular (ITS and LSU rDNA
Taxonomy and phylogeny of Macrolepiota: two new species from Brazil
Macrolepiota cyanolamellata and M. sabulosa from subtropical and tropical regions, respectively, are proposed as new species as well as molecular phylogenetic analyses of the nuc rDNA internal transcribed spacer region ITS1-5 and the combined data set ITS + nuclear large subunit rDNA (28S) + RNA polymerase II second largest (RPB2).
Delimitation of Russula Subgenus Amoenula in Korea Using Three Molecular Markers
Findings of the study suggest that ITS and RPB2 had the best performance for the Russula subgenus Amoneula.
Sequestrate species of Agaricus and Macrolepiota from Australia: new species and combinations and their position in a calibrated phylogeny
Australian collections of sequestrate Agaricaceae were examined with morphological and molecular data and the majority were found to belong to the genera Agaricus and Macrolepiota, and the sequestrate genus Barcheria is retained as a distinct taxon.
Chlorophyllum and Macrolepiota (Agaricaceae) in Australia
A checklist of and a key to seven species of Chlorophyllum Massee and Macrolepiota Singer in Australia are given. Two species are described as new: C. nothorachodes Vellinga & Lepp from Australian
Macrolepiota subcitrophylla sp. nov., a new species with yellowish lamellae from southwest China
Sequences from the internal transcribed spacer region show that M. subcitrophylla is distinct from all other Macrolepiota species tested, suggesting it is a taxon close to M. clelandii, a species originally described from Australia.
Macrolepiota aberdarense, a new edible mushroom from Kenya
The larger basidiomata with yellow brownish to brownish granular squamules, distinct umbo, larger basidia and smaller ellipsoid basidiospores form remarkable features that separate this species from previously published members belonging to the genus Macrolepiota.
ITS primers with enhanced specificity for basidiomycetes ‐ application to the identification of mycorrhizae and rusts
ITS1‐F/ITS4‐B preferential amplification was shown to be particularly useful for detection and analysis of the basidiomycete component in ectomycorrhizae and in rust‐infected tissues.

A DNA-taxonomic approach to access the meiobenthic organismic diversity, by focusing on obtaining signature sequences from a part of the large ribosomal subunit rRNA (28S), the D3–D5 region, results in 264 new unique sequences, which can be readily placed into taxon groups, based on phylogenetic comparison with currently available database sequences.
