The winter mushroom, or Enokitake, is economically important and commercially cultivated on a large scale in East Asia. However, the phylogeny and species delimitation of the winter mushroom genus (Flammulina) have not been fully clarified. In this study, 81 collections of Flammulina from East Asia, Europe, and North America were studied, and their phylogeny and species delimitation were inferred from partial sequences of the ITS, tef1-α, rpb2, and homeodomain1 (HD1) of the mating gene (labeled… 

Two new taxa of the Auriscalpium vulgare species complex with substrate preferences

Three species, having distinct substrate preferences, are documented here, namely the well-known A. vulgare, and the newly described species A. orientale and A. microsporum, which are known mainly from subtropical East Asia and northeastern India to date.

Ecological speciation of Japanese hedgehog mushroom: Hydnum subalpinum sp. nov. is distinguished from its sister species H. repando-orientale by means of integrative taxonomy

The taxonomy of the two ecological groups of H. repando-orientale was re-examined and the ROC group was defined as a new species, H. subalpinum, which may have recently speciated in East Asia.

Tricholomopsis badinensis sp. nov. and T. sulphureoides—two rare fungi of European old-growth forests

A preliminary key for the identification of European Tricholomopsis species lacking red or violet coloration is proposed and a geographic pattern is revealed for species distributed primarily in the Holarctic are separated from those occurring in the Southern Hemisphere.

Comprehensive Genetic Analysis of Monokaryon and Dikaryon Populations Provides Insight Into Cross-Breeding of Flammulina filiformis

This study provides a method to distinguish two sets of monokaryon haplotypes, and several valuable genetic resources of wild F. filiformis, and an effective strategy for guiding F.filiformis breeding based on the population structure and pedigree relationship in future.

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 Genus Pachyma (Syn. Wolfiporia) Reinstated and Species Clarification of the Cultivated Medicinal Mushroom “Fuling” in China

It is confirmed that the widely cultivated “Fuling” Pachyma hoelen in East Asia is not conspecific with the North American Wolfiporia cocos, and it seems that PachyMA cocos is a species complex, and that three species exist in North America.

Exploring the Species Diversity of Edible Mushrooms in Yunnan, Southwestern China, by DNA Barcoding

The results on both the distinct barcode sequences and the distributions of these sequences should facilitate new mushroom species discovery and forensic authentication of high-valued mushrooms and contribute to the scientific inventory for the management of wild mushroom markets.

Taxonomy of Aspergillus series Versicolores: species reduction and lessons learned about intraspecific variability

It is demonstrated that the currently applied concept of species is not sustainable as there are incongruences between single-gene phylogenies resulting in different species identifications when using different gene regions.

Genome-wide analysis and prediction of genes involved in the biosynthesis of polysaccharides and bioactive secondary metabolites in high-temperature-tolerant wild Flammulina filiformis

This study sequenced the genome of the wild strain F. filiformis, predicted its biosynthetic gene clusters (BGCs) and profiled the expression of these genes in wild and cultivar strains and in different developmental stages, providing valuable data for elucidating the regulation of secondary metabolites in this unique F.filiformis strain.

Genomic-wide analysis and prediction of genes involved in biosynthesis of polysaccharide and bioactive secondary metabolites in high-temperature-tolerance of wild Flammulina filiformis

This study sequenced the genome of the wild strain F. filiformis, identified candidate genes involved in the biosynthesis of polysaccharide and terpenoid bioactive compounds and profiled these genes expression during the development of F.filiformis by a comparative transcriptomic analysis.



Phylogenetic Analyses of Armillaria Reveal at Least 15 Phylogenetic Lineages in China, Seven of Which Are Associated with Cultivated Gastrodia elata

The phylogenetically analyzed Chinese Armillaria samples using the sequences of the internal transcribed spacer region, translation elongation factor-1 alpha gene and beta-tubulin gene revealed at least 15 phylogenetic lineages from China, of which seven were newly discovered and two were recorded from China for the first time.

Species clarification of oyster mushrooms in China and their DNA barcoding

Molecular identification of the species complex based on sequences of the internal transcribed spacer region (ITS), translation elongation factor 1-α (TEF1), and two genes that encode subunits of RNA polymerase II (RPB1 and RPB2) indicated thatRPB2 was the most promising candidate segment of DNA barcode for the P. ostreatus species complex.

One hundred noteworthy boletes from China

M morphological studies and phylogenetic analyses were conducted including species of Boletaceae from China and other parts of the world, indicating that seven subfamily-level major clades and 62 generic clades can be retrieved, 52 of which are found in China.

Patterns of geographic speciation in the genus Flammulina based on sequences of the ribosomal ITS1-5.8S-ITS2 area

Results of neighbor-joining and parsimony analysis are consistent with the hypothesis that F. populicola is a relatively old species which has diverged significantly on different continents, possibly giving rise to F "mexicana" in North America.

Taxonomic evaluation of Miscanthus nudipes (Poaceae) based on morphological and molecular evidence

Miscanthus species including the famous energy plant M . × giganteus are considered to be second-generation energy crops. Miscanthus nudipes is an endemic species from Himalaya-Hengduan Mountains and

Flammulina species from China inferred by morphological and molecular data

Fammulina yunnanensis is described as new based on morphological and molecular data, and collections of F. velutipes from China are more closely related to a Canadian Population rather than to those of Europe and the USA.

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.

Multi-locus phylogeny of lethal amanitas: Implications for species diversity and historical biogeography

The cryptic diversity found in this study indicates that the species diversity of lethal amanitas is strongly underestimated under the current taxonomy, and the importance of both dispersal and vicariance in shaping the intercontinental distributions of these ectomycorrhizal fungi is indicated.

A Beauveria phylogeny inferred from nuclear ITS and EF1-α sequences: evidence for cryptic diversification and links to Cordyceps teleomorphs

Lineage diversity detected within clades A, B and C suggests that prevailing morphological species concepts underestimate species diversity within these groups, and establishes a phylogenetic framework for further taxonomic, phylogenetic and comparative biological investigations of Beauveria and their corresponding Cordyceps teleomorphs.
