The Basidiomycota constitutes a major phylum of the kingdom Fungi and is second in species numbers to the Ascomycota. The present work provides an overview of all validly published, currently used basidiomycete genera to date in a single document. An outline of all genera of Basidiomycota is provided, which includes 1928 currently used genera names, with 1263 synonyms, which are distributed in 241 families, 68 orders, 18 classes and four subphyla. We provide brief notes for each accepted genus… 

Outline, Divergence Times, and Phylogenetic Analyses of Trechisporales (Agaricomycetes, Basidiomycota)

Bayesian evolutionary and divergence time analyses indicate an ancient divergence of Sistotremastrum family from Hydnodontaceae during the Triassic period (224.25 Mya) as well as four new species of Trechisporales.

Taxonomy and phylogeny of hyaline-spored coelomycetes

The present study revises the classification of the hyaline-spored coelomycetes and provides a modern taxonomic framework based on both morphology and phylogeny.

Indian Pucciniales: taxonomic outline with important descriptive notes

  • 2021
An overview and outline of rust fungi of India with important descriptive notes is provided and a phylogenetic analysis from a combined LSU and ITS dataset for 25 rust genera is presented to provide a better understanding of their phylogeny and evolution.

Refined families of Sordariomycetes

This treatment of the class Sordariomycetes provides up-to-date DNA based phylogenies for 45 orders and 163 families and provides general descriptions and illustrate the type genus or another genus, where the placement has generally been confirmed with molecular data.

Two new species of Deconica (Agaricales, Basidiomycota) from Australia and Mexico

Two new species of Deconica with chrysocystidia are described from Australia and Mexico and the phylogenetic position of the new species described here within Deconica sect.

Species diversity of Basidiomycota

It was found that the establishment of comprehensive and robust taxonomic systems based on a joint global initiative by mycologists could promote and standardize the recognition of taxa and illustrate a huge gap between the described and yet unknown diversity in Basidiomycota.

Phylogenetic relationships in the genus Podoserpula and description of P. aliweni, a new species from Chile

A new species of Podoserpula aliweni is described, which forms a unique branch in the phylogenetic tree and differs from its most closely related taxon by 1.8-2.1% in the ITS region.

Taxonomy and Phylogeny of Cystostereaceae (Agaricales, Basidiomycota): A New Genus, Five New Species, and Three New Combinations

The results proved that the species diversity of wood-decaying fungi in East and Southeast Asia is rich and suggested that more investigations and studies should be carried out in the future.

Taxonomic Study of the Genus Pholiota (Strophariaceae, Basidiomycota) in Korea

A taxonomic key and the ITS sequence data for Korean Pholiota species are included and can be good baselines for further research onPholiota taxonomy and diversity.

Delimiting species in Basidiomycota: a review

The species concepts commonly used in Basidiomycota, the second largest phylum of Fungi that contains some of the best known species of mushrooms, rusts, smuts, and jelly fungi, are reviewed.



The 2016 classification of lichenized fungi in the Ascomycota and Basidiomycota – Approaching one thousand genera

The phylogenetic position of the 39 orders containing lichenized fungi suggests 20–30 independent lichenization events during the evolution of higher Fungi, 14–23 in the Ascomycota and 6–7 in the Basidiomycota.

Phylogeny of the Pluteaceae (Agaricales, Basidiomycota): taxonomy and character evolution.

A six-gene phylogenetic overview of Basidiomycota and allied phyla with estimated divergence times of higher taxa and a phyloproteomics perspective

A phylogenetic overview of Basidiomycota and related phyla in relation to ten years of DNA based phylogenetic studies since the AFTOL publications in 2007 is provided.

Phylogenetic relationships, taxonomic revision and new taxa of Termitomyces (Lyophyllaceae, Basidiomycota) inferred from combined nLSU- and mtSSU-rDNA sequences

The combined phylogenetic analysis and morphological features reveal that different strains of the same taxon show sometimes large variations in macro- and micromorphological features, thereby justifying the new forms erected within these taxa in order to facilitate their identification.

One hundred and seventeen clades of euagarics.

Molecular phylogenetic analyses redefine seven major clades and reveal 22 new generic clades in the fungal family Boletaceae

The results indicated that the characters frequently used in the morphology-based taxonomy of Boletaceae, such as basidiospore ornamentation, the form of the basidioma, and the stuffed pores each had multiple origins within the family, suggesting that the use of such features for high-level classification ofBoletaceae should be de-emphasized and combined with other characters.

Phylogenetic relationships of russuloid basidiomycetes with emphasis on aphyllophoralean taxa

Phylogenetic relationships among russuloid basidiomycetes were investigated using sequence data from the nuclear 5.8S, ITS2 and large-subunit rDNA genes and results suggest that gloeocystidia are a synapomorphy for taxa within the rRussuloid clade while the amyloidity of spores is inconsistent.

Toward resolving family-level relationships in rust fungi (Uredinales)

It is concluded that morphology alone is a poor predictor of rust relationships at most levels and host selection, on the other hand, has played a significant role in rust evolution.

Phylogeny and diversity of Fomitiporella (Hymenochaetales, Basidiomycota)

This study made a comprehensive study on Fomitiporella on the basis of collections from Central America, USA, Europe, and China, and discovered 14 new lineages, including 4 new species described and illustrated as new species.
