Reexamination of Odontia sacchari, O. saccharicola, and Corticium granulare

  title={Reexamination of Odontia sacchari, O. saccharicola, and Corticium granulare},
  author={Karen K. Nakasone},
Type specimens of three corticioid taxa described by E.A. Burt are reexamined. In 1917, Burt described two new species of Odontia, O. sacchari and O. saccharicola, on sugar cane from Cuba and Puerto Rico. Odontia sacchari is similar to the ubiquitous Hyphoderma setigerum (Fr.) Donk except for basidia that are consistently two-sterigmate and basidiospores that are slightly larger. The new combination Hyphoderma saccharum (Burt) Nakasone is proposed. Odontia saccharicola is morphologically…

Morphological and molecular studies on Resinicium s. str.
Five new species of Resinicium closely allied to R. bicolor from the Caribbean region are described and illustrated and sequence analyses of the internal transcribed spacer region support the recognition of the new taxa.
Taxonomy and phylogeny of Resinicium sensu lato from Asia-Pacific revealing a new genus and five new species (Hymenochaetales, Basidiomycota)
The ancestral geographic origin of Resinicium is now thought to be Asia-Pacific instead of tropical America as previously assumed, and six newly proposed taxa are morphologically compared with related genera and species.
The Genus Resinicium in French Guiana and the West Indies: a Morphological and Molecular Survey, Revealing Resinicium grandisporum sp. nov.
A revision of Resinicium collections from French Guiana and French West Indies is provided, and a new species is described and illustrated, supported by morphological and phylogenetic analyses based on ITS rDNA sequences.
Changes of Quality of Minimally-Processed Pineapple (Ananas comosus, var. ‘Queen Victoria’) during Cold Storage: Fungi in the Leading Role
The implication of Penicilllium citrtrinum, Talaromyces amestolkiae, Rhodotorula mucilaginosa, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, and Meyerozyma caribbica in the spoilage of minimally-processed pineapple cuts was demonstrated and diversity in yeasts and molds was mainly dependent on the considered batches observed from PCR-DGGE profiles.


Higher Fungi of the Hawaiian Islands
The purely North American component in the higher fungal flora of the Hawaiian Islands is hardly a fourth as great as that of Asiatic, East Indian, and Philippine sources, so far as the present small number of species show.
A multiple-choice key for the identification of cultures of 149 species of wood-inhabiting Hymenomycetes, whose cultural characters have been published previously, is based on the following
Fungi on Plants and Plant Products in the United States
The heterosis estimaríon for each genetic group was performed once orthogonal contrasts between genetíc groups were made in each one the caracteristlCs that produced signif¡cant effects, except for weaning age.
Differentiation of Wood-Decaying Fungi by Their Reactions on Gallic or Tannic Acid Medium
Results of repeated tests of a greater number of species, representing several families and numerous genera, mostly of the Hymenomycetes, are given, to assist in developing a method of identifying pure cultures of the wood-decaying fungi.
