The authors present a combined morphological and molecular approach of the genus Cantharellus in Africa. Morphological descriptions and detailed illustrations are provided for five new species from the Zambezian savannah woodlands in tropical Africa: C. afrocibarius, C. gracilis, C. humidicolus, C. miomboensis and C. tanzanicus. A maximum likelihood analysis of tef-1 sequences obtained for 83 collections of Cantharellus that are representative of all major groups in world wide Cantharellus… Expand

Tables from this paper

Epitypification of the Central African Cantharellusdensifolius and C.luteopunctatus allows for the recognition of two additional species
TLDR
Sequences obtained from these new collections demonstrate that both epitypes represent distinct species that belong in different subclades of Cantharellussubg.Rubrinus. Expand
A new species of Cantharellus (Cantharellales, Basidiomycota, Fungi) from subalpine forest in Yunnan, China
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of the transcription elongation factor 1-alpha sequence data further support its systematic position in the subgenus Cantharellus and its description as a new species. Expand
Sequence data reveal a high diversity of Cantharellus associated with endemic vegetation in Madagascar
TLDR
This revision of Cantharellus in Madagascar deals with species that are associated with strictly endemic host trees and shrubs, and proposes five new species based on morphological differences and molecular sequence data of the tef-1 gene. Expand
A multilocus phylogeny for worldwide Cantharellus (Cantharellales, Agaricomycetidae)
TLDR
The paper discusses the observed discrepancy in biodiversity of Cantharellus when comparing between studies that focus either on below- or above-ground presence, and suggests an ‘out of Africa’ Gondwanan origin as a result of vicariance and subsequent migrations. Expand
Cantharellus chicagoensis sp. nov. is supported by molecular and morphological analysis as a new yellow chanterelle in midwestern United States
TLDR
This study investigates yellow chanterelles in the Midwest using phylogenetic analysis of three DNA regions: nuc rDNA internal transcribed spacer 2 (ITS2) and 28S sequences and translation elongation factor 1α gene (EF1α). Expand
The Cantharellus isabellinus species complex ( Cantharellales , Hydnaceae ) in tropical Africa
Cantharellus isabellinus is epitypified and discussed on the basis of multiple new collections from the African rain forest. These are the first collections since this species was described more thanExpand
Untangling the Central African Cantharellus Sect. Tenues: Cantharellus minutissimus sp. nov. and Epitypification of Cantharellus alboroseus
TLDR
Cantharellus section Tenues was originally created for four new, very small, redorange-yellow Central African chanterelles with a more or less fistulose stipe, short basidia and an omphaloid habit but remain poorly known and need to be recollected and epitypified. Expand
Cantharellus hainanensis, a new species with a smooth hymenophore from tropical China
TLDR
The phylogenetic analysis of DNA sequences from the translation elongation factor 1-α gene ( TEF1) confirms that it forms an independent lineage within the subgenus Cantharellus and a detailed description, color photos of fresh basidiomata and line-drawings of microstructures are presented. Expand
New and Interesting Cantharellus from Tropical Africa
TLDR
First sequences for C. defibulatus, C. rufopunctatus and C. sublaevis are provided, all of which are here epitypified, as well as new sequences for more than a dozen other Cantharellus. Expand
Cantharellus hygrophorus, a New Species in Subgenus Afrocantharellus from Tropical Southwestern China
TLDR
Both morphological features as well as a phylogenetic analysis of nLSU sequences argue strongly against the recognition of Afrocantharellus as a separate genus, which is here considered a later synonym of CanthareLLus. Expand

Observations on Some Enigmatic Cantharellus (Cantharellales, Basidiomycota) with Lilac-Violaceous Tints from Africa and Madagascar
TLDR
Some extremely rare African and Malagasy chanterelles that have dark lilac-violaceous colors on the cap and/or stipe surface and are provisionally described as new subspecies from Madagascar are dealt with. Expand
Afrocantharellus gen. stat. nov. is part of a rich diversity of African Cantharellaceae
A new genus in the Cantharellaceae, Afrocantharellus, is recognized based on results from phylogenetic analyses of rDNA LSU and concatenated LSU/5.8-ITS2/ATP6 data. It was previously recognized as aExpand

Cantharellus solidus, a New Species from Benin (West-Africa) with a Smooth Hymenium
TLDR
Cantharellus solidus is a new species from the Guineo-Sudanian part of Benin (West Africa) and is likely close to the C. lateritius-complex and occurs in forest galleries dominated by Berlinia grandiflora and Uapaca togoensis. Expand
Notes on the Australian Species Described in the Genus Cantharellus (Basidiomycetes)
TLDR
Two, perhaps three taxa (if C. ochraceoravus is not a Clitocybe) among 17 belong to the genus and a short dichotomous key is provided for these species. Expand
Cantharellus fistulosus sp. nov. from Tanzania
Cantharellus fistulosus sp. nov from Tanzania is described as a close relative to C. schmitzii from tropical miombo woodland dominated by tree species in Brachystegia, Julbernardia and Isoberlinia.Expand
Phylogenetic analyses of the Lyophylleae (Agaricales, Basidiomycota) based on nuclear and mitochondrial rDNA sequences
TLDR
It is concluded that the Mickevich-Farris test is more appropriate for estimating congruence and combinability between different sources of molecular data than the more widely used ILD and Templeton tests, at least when the different data sets have their respective resolution power at different depths in the phylogeny.

One Neo- and Four Epitypifications for Cantharellus Species from Tropical African savannah woodlands
TLDR
Cantharellus addaiensis is redescribed, illustrated and neotypified and Epitypes are introduced for C. symoensii, C. splendens and C. heinemannianus. Expand
Multilocus sequence typing suggests the chytrid pathogen of amphibians is a recently emerged clone
TLDR
Only five variable nucleotide positions were detected among 10 loci, consistent with the description of B. dendrobatidis as a recently emerged disease agent, and electrophoretic karyotyping of multiple strains demonstrated a number of chromosome length polymorphisms. Expand
