Reappraisal of the Genus Exsudoporus (Boletaceae) Worldwide Based on Multi-Gene Phylogeny, Morphology and Biogeography, and Insights on Amoenoboletus

Outcomes from a multilocus phylogenetic analysis clearly resolve Exsudoporus as a monophyletic, homogenous and independent genus that is sister to Butyriboletus.

Has taxonomic vandalism gone too far? A case study, the rise of the pay-to-publish model and the pitfalls of Morchella systematics

A critical review on the pitfalls of Morchella systematics is provided followed by a series of recommendations for the delimitation of species, description of taxa, and ultimately for a sustainable taxonomy in MorcheLLA.

Building of an Internal Transcribed Spacer (ITS) Gene Dataset to Support the Italian Health Service in Mushroom Identification

The dataset was able to identify the species involved in regional poisoning incidents and may be used for supporting the National Health Service throughout the Italian territory.

Unravelling the French National Fungal Database: Geography, Temporality, Taxonomy and Ecology of the Recorded Diversity

Large datasets are highly valuable resources to investigate multi-scale patterns of organisms, and lay foundations for citizen science-based conservation strategies. Here, we used 1,043,262 records




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.

Clarifying the butter Boletes: a new genus, Butyriboletus, is established to accommodate Boletus sect. Appendiculati, and six new species are described

A new genus is established, Butyriboletus, to accommodate 14 species of butter boletes that range from Asia to Europe, north Africa and North America and six new species are described.

Macromycetes within Cistaceae-dominated ecosystems in Cyprus Μ

An inventory of macromycetes associated with Cistaceae plants, including Cistus, Helianthemum, Tuberaria and Fumana species in Cyprus is presented, following a ten-year survey between 2007 and 2016.

Annotated Checklist of Basidiomycota (Subclass Agaricomycetidae) from the Islands of Naxos and Amorgos (Cyclades, Greece)

This work presents an annotated check-list of the basidiomycetes belonging to the subclass AgaricomycETidae (Agaricales and Boletales) from these two islands, with a total of 142 species and subspecific taxa recognized and assigned to 58 genera.

Cupreoboletus (Boletaceae, Boletineae), a new monotypic genus segregated from Boletus sect. Luridi to reassign the Mediterranean species B. poikilochromus

Cupreoboletus is erected as a new monospecific genus of Boletaceae to accommodate the thermophilic southern European species Boletus poikilochromus, characterized by discoloration toward copper-red

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.

DNA Sequence Analyses Reveal Abundant Diversity, Endemism and Evidence for Asian Origin of the Porcini Mushrooms

DNA sequence variation in three gene markers from samples of these mushrooms from across China revealed fifteen novel phylogenetic species and a newly identified lineage represented by Boletus sp.

A new genus Pseudoaustroboletus (Boletaceae, Boletales) from Asia as inferred from molecular and morphological data

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.

Hourangia, a new genus of Boletaceae to accommodate Xerocomus cheoi and its allied species

Hourangia, a new genus in the Boletaceae, is erected to accommodate Xerocomus cheoi and allied species based on molecular phylogenetic analyses and morphological study and Phylloporus pumilus, originally described from Indonesia, is transferred to Hourangia.
