  pages={1433 - 1440}
The bioluminescent agaric, Agaricus gardneri Berk., was rediscovered recently in central Brazil. The new combination, Neonothopanus gardneri, is proposed for this long-forgotten taxon supported by morphological and molecular data. 

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

A review on bioluminescent fungus Neonothopanus gardneri

It is possible to observe that studies involving this species of bioluminescent fungus have focused on explaining the mechanism of light production and its potential biological activities, among them, antitumor, antioxidant, antimicrobial and antileishmanial effects.

Erratum to: Mycena kentingensis, a new species of luminous mushroom in Taiwan, with reference to its culture method

Phylogenetic analyses by Bayesian and maximum likelihood methods showed that M. kentingensis is close to M. stylobates and M. adscendens, a new luminous mushroom discovered in the tropical forest of Kenting National Park in Taiwan.

The Amazonian luminescent Mycena cristinae sp. nov. from Brazil

Morphological data support M. cristinae as a different species compared to previously described taxa and the luminescence is evident in the basidiomata (especially the stipe) and in the mycelium on the substrate.

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.

History of the Bioluminescent Fungi Flor-de-Coco (Neonothopanus gardneri) and Effects of Culture Conditions on Light Emission

The history of bioluminescent fungi in Brazil is present and the variation of culture conditions was evaluated in order to develop a toxicological assay with N. gardneri, demonstrating benefits when compared to the G. viridilucens fungus.

Distribution of bioluminescent fungi across old-growth and secondary tropical rain forest in Costa Rica.

This study compared the distribution of bioluminescent fungi between old-growth and secondary forest as related to four different soil types at the tropical rainforest of La Selva Biological Station in Costa Rica to find a significant relationship between the presence of fungi and the Distribution of soil types.

Distribution of bioluminescent fungi across old-growth and secondary forests in a tropical rain forest in Costa Rica

Compared the distribution of bioluminescent fungi between old-growth and secondary forest as related to four different soil types at the tropical rainforest of La Selva Biological Station in Costa Rica, which found only three samples with fruiting bodies had Mycena and the other had one fungus of the order Xylariales.

Evidence that a single bioluminescent system is shared by all known bioluminescent fungal lineages.

The hypothesis that all four lineages of luminescent fungi share the same type of luciferin and luciferase, that there is a single luminescence mechanism in the Fungi, and that fungalLuciferin is not a ubiquitous molecule in fungal metabolism is supported.



Agaricales of Brazil described by M. J. Berkeley

The type collections of fifty-five species of agaricoid fungi described from Brazil by M. J. Berkeley between 1840 and 1876 have been examined and their generic position established. The following

Type specimen studies in Pleurotus

Morphological examination of Mexican material and the type specimen of P. opuntiae showed that the distribution of this species includes North Africa and the highlands of Mexico, and Neonothopanus is proposed to solve this problem.

New genera of fungi.

The present paper deals with certain small groups and isolated spe? cies, generally analogous to the Trichomolas and Clitocybes (tribus Clitocybeae) but differing from them by amyloid spores. This

Phylogenetic relationships of agaric fungi based on nuclear large subunit ribosomal DNA sequences.

Phylogenetic relationships of mushrooms and their relatives within the order Agaricales were addressed by using nuclear large subunit ribosomal DNA sequences to provide a framework for future systematics studies in the Agaricalses and suggestions for analyzing large molecular data sets.

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.

Catalogue and bibliography of Australian Macrofungi

The catalogue covers approximately 3200 accepted, synonymous and misapplied names in Agaricales, Boletales, Cantharellales, Gauteriales, Hymenogastrales, Melanogastrals, Phallales p.p, Podaxales, Russulales, Aphyllophorales, and taxa associated with Eucalyptus outside of Australia.

One hundred and seventeen clades of euagarics.

The enzymatic nature of fungal bioluminescence.

Kinetic data suggest a consecutive two-step enzymatic mechanism and corroborate the enzymatics proposal of Airth and Foerster and overlapping of light emission spectra from the fungal bioluminescence and the in vitro assay confirm that this reaction is the same one that occurs in live fungi.

MacClade 4: analysis of phy-logeny and character evolution

MacClade is a computer program that provides theory and tools for the graphic and interactive analysis of molecular and morphological data, phylogeny, and character evolution, yet its ease of use allows beginning students to grasp phylogenetic principles in an interactive environment.

The Role of Superoxide Dismutase in Regulating the Light Emission of Luminescent Fungi

The luminescence reactions of all kinds of luminous fungi are basically the same as that of P. stipticus, and the emission of light takes place when its luciferin is aerobically oxidized in the presence of the superoxide anion (O 2 - ) and a cationic surfactant.
