The rare sequestrate fungus Amogaster viridiglebus is known from only one collection in California where it was discovered among Populus roots. Based on sporocarp coloration and spore morphology, this sequestrate taxon was putatively considered to be an ectomycorrhizal member of the Boletales. However, no molecular data were previously available to definitively determine the closest relatives of this fungus. Here we revisit the morphology of Amogaster viridiglebus and present a phylogenetic… Expand

A multi-gene phylogeny of Chlorophyllum (Agaricaceae, Basidiomycota): new species, new combination and infrageneric classification
TLDR
A new infrageneric classification of Chlorophyllum is proposed, in which the genus is divided into six sections and two new species, C. africanum and C. palaeotropicum are described. Expand
Multiple evolutionary origins of sequestrate species in the agaricoid genus Chlorophyllum
TLDR
Six sequestrate lineages of Chlorophyllum appear to have evolved in at least three independent gasteromycetation events, and the phylogenetic placement of C. arizonicum is confirmed after successful sequencing of the century-old holotype and an undescribed sister lineage of this species detected. Expand
Resolved phylogeny and biogeography of the root pathogen Armillaria and its gasteroid relative, Guyanagaster
TLDR
The molecular clock analysis and ancestral range estimation suggest the most recent common ancestor to the armillarioid lineage arose 51 million years ago in Eurasia, a time marked by a warm and wet global climate. Expand
The enigmatic truffle Fevansia aurantiaca is an ectomycorrhizal member of the Albatrellus lineage
TLDR
This study combined phylogenetic analysis of the ITS and 28S ribosomal DNA with data on microscopic morphology to determine that F. aurantiaca is a member of the Albatrellus ectomycorrhizal lineage (Albatrellaceae, Russulales). Expand
Two new species and a new record of Lepiota (Basidiomycota, Agaricales) from the Dominican Republic
TLDR
Two new species of Lepiota and a new record (L. sosuensis and L. subgranulosa) are described based on collections made in the Dominican Republic and the phylogenetic position of the species based on nrITS data is analyzed. Expand
A new genus Pseudoaustroboletus (Boletaceae, Boletales) from Asia as inferred from molecular and morphological data
TLDR
A new genus of Boletaceae is described to accommodate the phylogenetically isolated species Tylopilus valens inferred by molecular and morphological data, which is currently only known from China, Japan, Malaysia and Singapore under forests dominated by Fagaceae plants. Expand
Description and affinities of a sequestrate Lepiota (Agaricaceae) from Australia
The novel Australian sequestrate species Lepiota geogenia is described and illustrated. It is characterized by globose to subglobose sporocarps that stain pale yellow with handling, and fusiform,Expand
A worldwide nomenclature revision of sequestrate Russula species
TLDR
This work combines the overlapping sequestrate generic names Bucholtzia, Cystangium, Elasmomyces, Gymnomyces and Martellia with the agaricoid genus Russula to create clarity in the understanding of the evolutionary affiliations among sequestrate fungi - particularly the Russulaceae. Expand
The Cedrus-associated truffle Trappeindia himalayensis is a morphologically unique and phylogenetically divergent species of Rhizopogon
TLDR
DNA sequence data is generated from type material and other herbarium specimens and the first molecular phylogenetic analysis of this unusual Cedrus-associated truffle is presented, finding that T. himalayensis is resolved within the genus Rhizopogon and represents a unique lineage that has not been previously detected. Expand
Lepiota elseae (Agaricales, Agaricaceae), a new species of section Lepiota from Spain
TLDR
A new species is described from Mediterranean areas in Spain in association with Quercus ilex, based on both morphological and molecular characters (analysis of the ITS-rDNA sequences) and the phylogenetic relationship with related species based on ITS sequences is discussed. Expand

Lepiota maculans, an Unusual Mushroom Rediscovered after 105 years
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of DNA sequence data supports placement within Lepiota of the Agaricaceae despite possessing a pink spore deposit, and concludes this species is L. maculans Peck, described originally and known only from one collection in Missouri. Expand
ITS primers with enhanced specificity for basidiomycetes ‐ application to the identification of mycorrhizae and rusts
TLDR
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. Expand
Amplification and direct sequencing of fungal ribosomal RNA genes for phylogenetics
TLDR
The nuclear small-subunit rDNA sequences (16S-like) evolve rela­ tively slowly and are useful for studying distantly related organisms, whereas the mitochondrial rRNA genes evolve more rapidly and can be useful at the ordinal or family level. Expand
