Evolutionary relationships of Mycaureola dilseae (Agaricales), a basidiomycete pathogen of a subtidal rhodophyte.
It is shown here that Mycaureola dilseae, which parasitizes the red alga Dilsea carnosa, is a second independent lineage of marine fungi in the euagarics clade that is not related to cyphelloid forms.
Phylogenetic Analysis within Genera Morchella (Ascomycota, Pezizales) and Macrolepiota (Basidiomycota, Agaricales) Inferred
The relationships among species within Morchella and Macrolepiota were studied using nrDNA ITS and EF-1α sequences and morphological characteristics in order to re-evaluate the taxonomic position of several controversial species for which theTaxonomic status is still unclear.
A Re-Evaluation of Gasteroid and Cyphelloid Species of Entolomataceae from Eastern North America
A recent find of the rarely collected gasteroid species Richoniella asterospora from southeast North America is reported, and molecular annotation and phylogenetic analysis of the holotype suggest an affiliation with two lignicolous European pileate-stipitate species of Entoloma.
A new species, phylogeny, and a worldwide key of the edible wood decay Fistulina (Agaricales)
A detailed account of Fistulina in Patagonia (Argentina) is presented based on an integrative analysis of phylogenetic, macro- and micro-morphological features, and host relationships, revealing that the Patagonian species form a strongly supported group together with species from the Southern Hemisphere.
An aero-aquatic fungus, Peyronelina glomerulata, is shown to have teleomorphic affinities with cyphelloid basidiomycetes
It is revealed that cyphelloid basidiomycetes have evolved into both marine as well as freshwater habitats by morphological adaptations of the teleomorphs in the former and of the anamorph in the latter case.
Deconstructing the Tricholomataceae (Agaricales) and introduction of the new genera Albomagister, Corneriella, Pogonoloma and Pseudotricholoma
A phylogeny of the Tricholomatoid clade based on nucleotide sequence data from two nuclear ribosomal RNA genes (large subunit and small subunit) and the second-largest subunit of RNA polymerase II (rpb2) is presented.
Re-thinking the classification of corticioid fungi.
New data in Porotheleaceae and Cyphellaceae: epitypification of Prunulus scabripes Murrill, the status of Mycopan Redhead, Moncalvo & Vilgalys and a new combination in Pleurella Horak emend.
The true phylogenetic position of authentic Mycopan including genera previously included in Cyphellaceae and Porotheleaceae is investigated, emphasizing once again the polyphyletic nature of Hydropus and Gerronema.


Higher-level phylogenetic relationships of Homobasidiomycetes (mushroom-forming fungi) inferred from four rDNA regions.
Parsimony and maximum-likelihood analyses support the monophyly of the eight major clades recognized by Hibbett and Thorn, and most groups are strongly supported in bootstrapped parsimony analyses, but the polyporoid clade remains weakly supported.
One hundred and seventeen clades of euagarics.
Progress toward a phylogenetic classification of the Polyporaceae through parsimony analysis of mitochondrial ribosomal DNA sequences
Seven groups of species are generally well supported (as measured by bootstrapping) or are congruent with previous taxonomic hypotheses, and Parsimony analyses of these sequences suggest that the Polyporaceae are polyphyletic.
Notes on ‘Cyphellaceae’—II
The author regards the Cyphellaceae as an artificial family. He redefines it for practical purposes, suggesting the gradual removal of those elements that show relationship with other groups; several
Flagelloscypha crassipilata sp. nov., a species from Peru with extremely thick surface hyphae and big basidia
This work proposes F. crassipilata as a new species, characterised by (3.5)4–6.5(8) μm thick surface hyphae, by extremely big basidia measuring 36–40(44) × 8.5 μm, and asymmetrically ovoid to asymmetrally ellipsoid, 10.5–12 × (4.5%)5–5.5μm large spores.
The Cyphellaceae is an instructive example of a situation not uncommonly encountered in the current systematics of mycology: a family retained in a traditional sense by some mycologists and considered by them as good a family as any, while others are convinced that it is nothing but a handy bin from which part of the contents has already been taken out and disposed of by scattering it over various groups, but which is still needed for keeping what remains.
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.
Notes on some fungi of Michigan—I. ‘Cyhellaceae’
This paper is based largely on collections made by the author in Michigan, U.S.A. and full accounts are given of all the species, including an unidentified sterile Cyphelloid fungus and two new taxa viz.
A reassessment of the Cyphellaceae
Once their true nature was recognized these discomycete-like basidiomycetes had to be reclassified in the system of the Hymenomycetes. Since the hymenium is smooth, the ‘ Thelephoraceae’ became the
A conspectus of the families of Aphyllophorales
The author gives a recapitulation of the families of the Aphyllophorales. He is inclined to recognize 21: the families he is not (yet) prepared to uphold are discussed. The synonymy of the order and
