New lichenicolous, muscicolous, corticolous and lignicolous taxa of Burgoa s. l. and Marchandiomyces s. l. (anamorphic Basidiomycota), a new genus for Omphalinafoliacea, and a catalogue and a key to the non-lichenized, bulbilliferous basidiomycetes

  journal={Mycological Progress},
A catalogue and a key to the non-lichenized, bulbilliferous basidiomycetes are given. The new genus Burgella is described for the lichenicolous B. flavoparmeliae, phylogenetically close to Sistotrema oblongisporum and Multiclavula. The genera Pneumatospora and Tricellulortus are placed in synonymy of Minimedusa, the new combination M. obcoronata is proposed, and the new facultative lichenicolous M. pubescens is described. The new facultative lichenicolous Burgoa angulosa is phylogenetically… 
Phylogenetic diversity of bulbil-forming lichenicolous fungi in Cantharellales including a new genus and species
A new species is described that grows over Cladonia rangiferina and forms yellow-orange, initially immersed bulbils similar to Burgella flavoparmeliae Diederich & Lawrey, a familiar species in the Cantharellales.
A new species of bulbil-forming lichenicolous fungi represents an isolated clade in the Cantharellales
A new genus and species is described in Austria that grows over Physcia aipolia and P. stellaris and forms minute dark reddish brown bulbils reminiscent of Ceratobasidium bulbillifaciens but much smaller in size, and its phylogenetic placement in the Cantharellales is inferred.
A Lichenicolous Species of Pleospora (Ascomycota) and a Key to the Fungi Invading Physcia Species
The species, which is a pathogen on various epiphytic Physcia species is newly reported for the mycoflora of Austria, Slovenia and Switzerland and the new combination Lichenochora physciicola (Ihlen & R.Sant.).
A new lichenicolous teleomorph is related to plant pathogens in Laetisaria and Limonomyces (Basidiomycota, Corticiales)
An undescribed lichenicolous basidiomycete teleomorph collected in Luxembourg, Belgium and Germany is included in Laetisaria based on strong statistical support for the clade containing these teleomorphs and several Marchandiomyces anamorphs.
Dismantling Marchandiomphalina into Agonimia (Verrucariaceae) and Lawreymycesgen. nov. (Corticiaceae): setting a precedent to the formal recognition of thousands of voucherless fungi based on type sequences
The obtained data let us conclude that M. foliacea is not a basidiomycete, as originally proposed, but belongs in Verrucariaceae, in the genus Agonimia, including its perithecia which had been identified with the lichenicolous Norrlinia peltigericola.
A new lineage of lichenized basidiomycetes inferred from a two-gene phylogeny: The Lepidostromataceae with three species from the tropics.
A new family of basidiolichens made up of tropical, soil-inhabiting fungi that form lichenized, scale-like squamules and erect, coral-like fruiting structures is described, indicating similar pathways to lichenization in these fungi.
Myrtaceae, a cache of fungal biodiversity
Twenty-six species of microfungi are treated, the majority of which are associated with leaf spots of Corymbia, Eucalyptus and Syzygium spp. (Myrtaceae). The treated species include three new genera,
Lepidostromatales, a new order of lichenized fungi (Basidiomycota, Agaricomycetes), with two new genera, Ertzia and Sulzbacheromyces, and one new species, Lepidostroma winklerianum
The photobionts of Sulzbacheromyces and Lepidostroma were identified using molecular data of the large subunit of the ribulose 1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (rbcL) gene, revealing a possibly undescribed genus in Trebouxiophyceae and the first report of lichenization for the genus Bracteacoccus in ChlorophyCEae.


Marchandiomyces lignicola sp. nov. shows recent and repeated transition between a lignicolous and a lichenicolous habit.
The anamorphic basidiomycete genus Marchandiomyces presently includes two common lichenicolous (lichen-inhabiting) species, M. corallinus and M. aurantiacus (teleomorph Marchandiobasidium
Arrhenia and Rimbachia, expanded generic concepts, and a reevaluation of Leptoglossum with emphasis on muscicolous North American taxa
Two genera, Arrhenia and Rimbachia, are recognized and Keys for the species are presented and reports of the various species are reevaluated based largely on a restudy of original materials.
Molecular data confirm that Omphalina foliacea is a lichen-forming basidiomycete.
The phylogenetic position of Omphalina foliacea and its putative closest relative, the lichen-forming basidiomycete Lichenomphalia lobata, is examined and it is shown that both, O. foliace and L. lobata are lichenized basidiomers, but probably belongs in the hymenochaetoid clade.
Phylogenetic diversity of lichen-associated homobasidiomycetes.
Phylogeny of agarics: partial systematics solutions for core omphalinoid genera in the agaricales (Euagarics).
The taxonomy of species previously assigned to Omphalina sensu lato or Clitocybe is reevaluated in light of recent molecularly-based phylogenetic hypotheses and the generic names Botrydina, Coriscium, Leptoglossum, Phaeotellus, Phytoconis, and Semiomphalina are discussed.
On Papulaspora and bulbilliferous basidiomycetes Burgoa and Minimedusa
It is proposed that Papulaspora Preuss be restricted to fungi producing papulaspores, which are defined as thallodic propagules differentiated almost from inception into central and sheathing cells.
Notes on Clavarioid Fungi. VII. Redefinition of the Clavaria vernalis - C. mucida Complex
Thirteen species of clavarioid lichenoid fungi are grouped into a new genus, Multiclavula, emphasizing hyphal morphology as a unifying characteristic, and only M. constans is free-living: the others are associated with algae, mosses, or allegedly associated with a slime mold.
Lichenicolous Fungi: Interactions, Evolution, and Biodiversity
The sorts of interactions formed by lichenicolous fungi with their lichen hosts are reviewed, various aspects of host specificity, virulence, chemical ecology, and evolution are discussed, and a complete taxonomic listing of lichen Nicolous genera arranged as far as possible into natural groupings is provided.
Two new species of Multiclavula (lichenized basidiomycetes) from savanna soils in Rwanda (East Africa)
Two new species of Multiclavula are described from Rwanda: M. akagerae, with a thallus consisting of turgescent glomerules, and M. rugaramae, with a thallus composed of flattened, rounded, marginate,
Genetic variation in the widespread lichenicolous fungus Marchandiomyces corallinus.
This type of genetic variation in these fungi suggests that sexual recombination is possible and that genetic differentiation has taken place recently as a result of geographic isolation, not host switching.
