Mycena kentingensis, a new luminous mushroom, was discovered in the tropical forest of Kenting National Park in Taiwan. The pileus of M. kentingensis is 3–8 mm in diameter and emits green light in the dark. The dorsal surface of the pileus is covered with short and white spines. The lamellae are nearly free. The stipe is puberulous with a white basal disc about 2 mm broad. Cheilocystidia are clavate to obpyriform, 16–40 × 4–8 μm, and have dense excrescences on the upper half or two-thirds of… 

Taxonomic studies of bluish Mycena (Mycenaceae, Agaricales) with two new species from northern China

The morphological data and the results of the phylogenetic analyses support the introduction of M. caeruleogrisea and M.caeruleomarginata as new species in Mycena s.l.

Mycena jingyinga, Mycena luguensis, and Mycena venus: three new species of bioluminescent fungi from Taiwan

Three new species of bioluminescent fungi Mycena jingyinga, M. luguensis, and M. venus are proposed based on phylogenetic and morphological analyses and are characterized by small size, white or brown, adnate to subdecurrent lamellae, pubescent stipe with fibrils at bases, four-spored basidia, amyloid spores, cheilocystidia with various shapes.

Mycena genomes resolve the evolution of fungal bioluminescence

It is shown that bioluminescence evolved in the last common ancestor of mycenoid and the marasmioid clade of Agaricales and was maintained through at least 160 million years of evolution.

Notes, outline and divergence times of Basidiomycota

Divergence times as additional criterion in ranking provide additional evidence to resolve taxonomic problems in the Basidiomycota taxonomic system, and also provide a better understanding of their phylogeny and evolution.

New species and records of bioluminescent Mycena from Mexico

ABSTRACT Seven species of bioluminescent fungi are recorded from the cloud forests in Mexico. Six represent new species belonging to the genus Mycena, whereas Mycena globulispora is a new

Small agarics in Taiwan: Mycena albopilosa sp. nov. and Gloiocephala epiphylla

The Mycena species is newly described as M. albopilosa herein and Gloiocephala epiphylla is new to Taiwan, being the only species of the genus known on the island.

Four new bioluminescent taxa of Mycena sect. Calodontes from Peninsular Malaysia

Bioluminescent fungi from Peninsular Malaysia—a taxonomic and phylogenetic overview

The phylogeny of the Malaysian bioluminescent fungi and closely related taxa were evaluated with molecular data from the nuclear ribosomal large subunit, RNA polymerase 2 second largest subunit (RPB2) and internal transcribed spacers (ITS) gene regions and DNA sequences data support the circumscription of species based on the morphological species concept, but was unable to fully support the current sectional delimitation of genus Mycena.
