The phylogeny of Lepiota, Cystolepiota, Melanophyllum, Coprinus comatus, and Chamaemyces fracidus was examined with molecular techniques, and the consequences for morphological classification were considered. This group (excluding Chamaemyces fracidus and Coprinus comatus and allies) can be split up into several clades, which do not correspond to currently recognized genera, subgenera and sections. Structure of the pileus covering appears to be a key morphological character; colour and shape of… 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
Lepiota coloratipes, a new species for Lepiota rufipes ss. Auct. europ. non ss. orig.
TLDR
A unique combination of morphological characters—i.e. hymeniform pileus covering, cheilocystidia of variable shape, fugacious partial veil not forming an annulus, presence of oil droplets in all tissues, and uninucleate spores—corresponds to an isolated position of its sequences in the phylogenetic tree.

NOTES ON TWO COPRINOID FUNGI (BASIDIOMYCOTA, AGARICALES) FROM THE BRAZILIAN SEMIARID REGION
Coprinellus phaeoxanthus A.R.Gomes & Wartchow is described as a new species and is characterised by cordiform basidiospores similar to those of the recently described Coprinellus arenicola. However,Expand
Genera in the family Agaricaceae: evidence from nrITS and nrLSU sequences.
TLDR
The circumscription of the family Agaricaceae, its genera and their characters are investigated, and the monovelangiocarpic Chamaemyces fracidus appears to be basal to the family and provides clues to the morphology of the ancestral AgARicaceae. 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
Sequestrate fungi from Patagonian Nothofagus forests: Cystangium (Russulaceae, Basidiomycota)
TLDR
Six species of Cystangium, a genus of sequestrate taxa related to Russula, were collected in Patagonia (Argentina and Chile) during autumn 2001 and sequences of the ITS (rDNA) region were obtained to explore the phylogenetic relationships of the species. Expand
A new species of Lepiota from China
TLDR
L Lepiota attenuata is a new species and is characterized by a pileus with brownish yellow squamules and radially sulcate striate margin, penguin-shaped spores that are distinctively narrowed toward the apex and inflated submoniliform or catenulate elements in the pileus covering. Expand
The family Agaricaceae: phylogenies and two new white-spored genera
A well resolved phylogeny of the Agaricaceae based on partial rpb2 sequences is presented from a wide geographic and systematic sampling of the family and compared to phylogenies based on nrLSU andExpand
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
Lepiota (Agaricales) in Northern Thailand-2 Lepiota Section Lepiota
TLDR
Five Lepiota species are characterised by distinct fusiform-amygdaliform spores in Northern Thailand and three species are proposed as new species based on molecular data. Expand

PHYLOGENETIC SYSTEMATICS OF LEPIOTA SENSU LATO BASED ON NUCLEAR LARGE SUBUNIT RDNA EVIDENCE
TLDR
Par- simony analysis indicates that both Agaricus and Co- prinus section Comati are nested within the lepiotoid fungi, which is consistent with the exclusion of the tribe Cystoderma and Ripartitella from the family Agaricaceae, and the retention of the tribes Lepi- oteae and Leucocoprineae. Expand

Studies in Lepiota IV. Lepiota cristata and L. castaneidisca
TLDR
Lepiota castaneidisca, though generally considered a synonym of L. cristata, is rediscovered as a separate species, and within the species two groups can be distinguished on molecular grounds. Expand
The Lycoperdales. A molecular approach to the systematics of some gasteroid mushrooms
TLDR
Support for an Agaricales-Lycoperdales relationship was found, the Geastrales being clearly separated from this lineage, and Lycoperdon was found to be polyphyletic, whereas Bovista appeared to be monophyletic. Expand
Biology of the ectomycorrhizal genus, Rhizopogon
TLDR
Although the host-specificity of many species, based on field observations of sporocarps, often correlated with their host range in the syntheses, some fungi formed well-developed ectomycorrhiza on hosts with which they appear to be associated in the field. Expand
Studies in Lepiota III. Some species from California, U.S.A.
TLDR
A closely related taxon, Lepiota spheniscispora spec, nov., is described from centralcoastal California, which differs morphologically from L. magnispora in the overall yellow-brown colours of the pileus, lacking a contrasting dark brown centre. Expand
