BackgroundLethal amanitas (Amanita section Phalloideae) are a group of wild, fatal mushrooms causing many poisoning cases worldwide. However, the diversity and evolutionary history of these lethal mushrooms remain poorly known due to the limited sampling and insufficient gene fragments employed for phylogenetic analyses. In this study, five gene loci (nrLSU, ITS, rpb2, ef1-α and β-tubulin) with a widely geographic sampling from East and South Asia, Europe, North and Central America, South… Expand

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
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
Phylogeny, divergence time and historical biogeography of Laetiporus (Basidiomycota, Polyporales)
TLDR
Results of multi-locus phylogenetic analyses show clade support for at least seventeen species-level lineages including two new Laetiporus in China and four intercontinental dispersal routes were established for the first time. 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
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
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
The saprotrophic Pleurotus ostreatus species complex: late Eocene origin in East Asia, multiple dispersal, and complex speciation
TLDR
A robust phylogeny of the Pleurotus ostreatus species complex is presented, fully resolved from the deepest nodes to species level, and 20 phylogenetic species were recognized, with seven putatively new species. Expand
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
Multilocus phylogenetic analyses reveal unexpected abundant diversity and significant disjunct distribution pattern of the Hedgehog Mushrooms (Hydnum L.)
TLDR
This study extensively gathered specimens of Hydnum from Asia, Europe, America and Australasia, and analyzed them by using sequences of four gene fragments, recognizing at least 31 phylogenetic species within Hydnum, 15 of which were reported for the first time. Expand
Phylogeny and biogeography of the remarkable genus Bondarzewia (Basidiomycota, Russulales)
TLDR
From the results, it is inferred that the maximum crown age of Bondarzewia is approximately 25.5 million-years-ago and that tropical East Asia is likely to be its ancestral area, with three possible expansions leading to its distribution in North America, Europe and Oceania. Expand

A Beauveria phylogeny inferred from nuclear ITS and EF1-α sequences: evidence for cryptic diversification and links to Cordyceps teleomorphs
TLDR
Lineage diversity detected within clades A, B and C suggests that prevailing morphological species concepts underestimate species diversity within these groups, and establishes a phylogenetic framework for further taxonomic, phylogenetic and comparative biological investigations of Beauveria and their corresponding Cordyceps teleomorphs.

Molecular phylogeny and biogeography of the widely distributed Amanita species, A. muscaria and A. pantherina.
TLDR
The molecular phylogeny and biogeography of two widely distributed Amanita species, A. muscaria and A. pantherina, were studied based on specimens from diverse localities and revealed a greater divergence of the beta-tubulin region than the ITS region. Expand

Lethal amanitas of East Asia characterized by morphological and molecular data
TLDR
The morphological characteristics and molecular phylogenetic relationships among lethal Amanita species occurring in East Asia revealed that at least nine phylogenetic taxa exist in the region, and Amanita oberwinklerana appeared to be a member of section Lepidella by the analyses of sequences from both the ITS regions and the large subunit of nuclear ribosomal RNA gene.

Out of the Palaeotropics? Historical biogeography and diversification of the cosmopolitan ectomycorrhizal mushroom family Inocybaceae
TLDR
The Inocybaceae initially diversified no later than the Cretaceous in Palaeotropical settings, in association with angiosperms, and accelerated during the Palaeogene in north and south temperate regions, whereas several relictual lineages persisted in the tropics. Expand

TLDR
This study represents the first effort to combine variable regions of RPB1 and RPB2 with nLSU-rDNA for low-level phylogenetic studies in mushroom-forming fungi and suggests the evolution of at least five major lineages in Inocybe. Expand
