Fungi in the basidiomycete order Corticiales are remarkably diverse nutritionally, including a variety of saprotrophs, plant and fungal pathogens, and lichen-forming fungi. Tracing the origin of this diversity depends on a clearer understanding of the phylogenetic relationships of fungi in the order. One of its core members is the genus Marchandiomyces, originally established for lichen pathogens that form orange or coral bulbils. We describe here a new species in the genus, M. marsonii sp. nov…

Phylogenetic diversity of bulbil-forming lichenicolous fungi in Cantharellales including a new genus and species
TLDR
A new species is described that grows over Cladonia rangiferina and forms yellow-orange, initially immersed bulbils similar to Burgella flavoparmeliae Diederich & Lawrey, a familiar species in the Cantharellales.
A new lineage of lichenized basidiomycetes inferred from a two-gene phylogeny: The Lepidostromataceae with three species from the tropics.
TLDR
A new family of basidiolichens made up of tropical, soil-inhabiting fungi that form lichenized, scale-like squamules and erect, coral-like fruiting structures is described, indicating similar pathways to lichenization in these fungi.
Digging Up the Roots: Taxonomic and Phylogenetic Disentanglements in Corticiaceae s.s. (Corticiales, Basidiomycota) and Evolution of Nutritional Modes
TLDR
The first comprehensive phylogenetic and taxonomic revision of the family Corticiaceae is provided based on extensive type studies and sequences of nLSU, ITS, IGS, nSSU, and mtSSU regions, and it is revealed that saprotrophy is the plesiomorphic nutritional mode in the family.
A new lichenicolous teleomorph is related to plant pathogens in Laetisaria and Limonomyces (Basidiomycota, Corticiales)
TLDR
An undescribed lichenicolous basidiomycete teleomorph collected in Luxembourg, Belgium and Germany is included in Laetisaria based on strong statistical support for the clade containing these teleomorphs and several Marchandiomyces anamorphs.
Dismantling Marchandiomphalina into Agonimia (Verrucariaceae) and Lawreymycesgen. nov. (Corticiaceae): setting a precedent to the formal recognition of thousands of voucherless fungi based on type sequences
TLDR
The obtained data let us conclude that M. foliacea is not a basidiomycete, as originally proposed, but belongs in Verrucariaceae, in the genus Agonimia, including its perithecia which had been identified with the lichenicolous Norrlinia peltigericola.
The 2016 classification of lichenized fungi in the Ascomycota and Basidiomycota – Approaching one thousand genera
TLDR
The phylogenetic position of the 39 orders containing lichenized fungi suggests 20–30 independent lichenization events during the evolution of higher Fungi, 14–23 in the Ascomycota and 6–7 in the Basidiomycota.
Phylogeny and taxonomy of the genus Vuilleminia (Basidiomycota) based on molecular and morphological evidence, with new insights into Corticiales
TLDR
The results challenge the notion that spore size and host specificity are critically important factors in delimiting species of Vuilleminia.
A new species and a new combination in Waitea (Corticiales, Basidiomycota) and the phylogenetic affinity of Disporotrichum
TLDR
The new corticioid species Waitea guianensis was described and illustrated from French Guiana, based on morphological and molecular phylogenetic evidence and the monotypic genus Disporotrichum is revealed to belong in the Corticiales, Corticiaceae.
Uncovering the hidden taxonomic diversity of fungi in Oman
TLDR
The taxonomy of several unusual fungal genera collected in a range of aquatic and terrestrial environments in Oman are highlighted based on phylogenetic analyses of nuclear ribosomal DNA (rDNA) and protein-coding genes ( TEF, RPB2 and TUB), plus morphological comparisons.

The phylogenetic position of selected lichenicolous fungi: Hobsonia, Illosporium, and Marchandiomyces
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of the sequence data indicated that Marchandiomyces corallinus and M. aurantiacus are closely related members of a basidiomycete clade.
Marchandiomyces lignicola sp. nov. shows recent and repeated transition between a lignicolous and a lichenicolous habit.
The anamorphic basidiomycete genus Marchandiomyces presently includes two common lichenicolous (lichen-inhabiting) species, M. corallinus and M. aurantiacus (teleomorph Marchandiobasidium
Phylogenetic diversity of lichen-associated homobasidiomycetes.
New lichenicolous, muscicolous, corticolous and lignicolous taxa of Burgoa s. l. and Marchandiomyces s. l. (anamorphic Basidiomycota), a new genus for Omphalinafoliacea, and a catalogue and a key to the non-lichenized, bulbilliferous basidiomycetes
TLDR
It is proposed to exclude Marchandiomyces aurantiacus from that genus and to use the holomorphic generic name Marchandiobasidium for both anamorph and teleomorph of this species.
Evolutionary instability of ectomycorrhizal symbioses in basidiomycetes
TLDR
The results indicate that mycorrhizal symbionts with diverse plant hosts have evolved repeatedly from saprotrophic precursors, but also that there have been multiple reversals to a free-living condition, suggesting that myCorrhizae are unstable, evolutionarily dynamic associations.
High phylogenetic diversity among corticioid homobasidiomycetes.
TLDR
It is concluded that corticioid fungi hold a considerable share of the phylogenetic diversity displayed by homobasidiomycetes, and should always be considered when phylogenetic studies of larger basidiomyCetes are designed.
Molecular data confirm that Omphalina foliacea is a lichen-forming basidiomycete.
TLDR
The phylogenetic position of Omphalina foliacea and its putative closest relative, the lichen-forming basidiomycete Lichenomphalia lobata, is examined and it is shown that both, O. foliace and L. lobata are lichenized basidiomers, but probably belongs in the hymenochaetoid clade.
A phylogenetic overview of the Agaricomycotina.
TLDR
The deepest nodes in the Agaricomycetes suggest that the Sebaci- nales, Cantharellales and Auriculariales are among the most ancient lineages, and the Polyporales are strongly supported as monophyletic and are placed as the sister group of the Thelepho- rales.

TLDR
Laetisaria arvalis, a soil-inhabiting basidiomycete, is described from culture as a new species and its potential importance as a biological control agent against Thanatephorus cucumerus (Frank) Donk the cause of a root rot of sugar beets is discussed.
