Abstract The crinipelloid genera Crinipellis and Moniliophthora (Agaricales, Marasmiaceae) are characterized by basidiomes that produce long, dextrinoid, hair-like elements on the pileus surface. Historically, most species are believed to be saprotrophic or, rarely, parasitic on plant hosts. The primary morphological diagnostic characters that separate Crinipellis and Moniliophthora are pliant vs. stiff (Crinipellis) stipes and a tendency toward production of reddish pigments (ranging from… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Claudopus niger (Entolomataceae – Basidiomycota), a new species from the Argentinean Atlantic Forest

The aim of this work is to describe and illustrate a species of Claudopus new to science, which some samples collected in the Argentinean Atlantic Forest have shown a set of characters that does not match with any of the species of Claudiaopus described until date.

Adaptive evolution of Moniliophthora PR-1 proteins towards its pathogenic lifestyle

Evidence is provided that the evolution of PR-1 in Moniliophthora was adaptive and potentially related to the emergence of the parasitic lifestyle in this genus.

Unambiguous identification of fungi: where do we stand and how accurate and precise is fungal DNA barcoding?

A conceptual framework for the identification of fungi is provided, encouraging the approach of integrative (polyphasic) taxonomy for species delimitation, i.e. the combination of genealogy, phenotype, and phenotype-based approaches to catalog the global diversity of fungi and establish initial species hypotheses.

How to publish a new fungal species, or name, version 3.0

An updated and expanded discussion of current publication requirements along with best practices for the description of new fungal species and publication of new names and for improving accessibility of their associated metadata that have developed over the last 10 years are provided.



Three new species of Crinipellis and one new variety of Moniliophthora (Basidiomycota, Marasmiaceae) described from the Republic of Korea

Three new species of Crinipellis (Basidiomycota, Marasmiaceae), and one new variety of Moniliophthora are described from the Republic of Korea, and their taxonomic positions were confirmed using DNA studies.

A monograph of the genera Crinipellis and Moniliophthora from Southeast Asia including a molecular phylogeny of the nrITS

These are the first distribution reports of Crinipellis and Moniliophthora for Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia and the geographic distributions were expanded for C. dipterocarpi f.

Four new species of Crinipellis and Marasmius in eastern Honshu, Japan

Abstract Four new species of Crinipellis and Marasmius (Agaricales, Basidiomycetes) in eastern Honshu, Japan, are described and illustrated: (1) Crinipellis conchata sp. nov. (section Excentricinae),

The causal agents of witches' broom and frosty pod rot of cacao (chocolate, Theobroma cacao) form a new lineage of Marasmiaceae.

Detailed phylogenetic analyses of five nuclear gene regions confirm that C. perniciosa and M. roreri are sister taxa that belong in the Marasmiaceae (euagarics), and these taxa form part of a separate and distinct lineage within the family.

Tying up loose threads: revised taxonomy and phylogeny of an avian-dispersed Neotropical rhizomorph-forming fungus

A new combination, Brunneocorticium corynecarpon, is proposed to accommodate this species, a pathogen, infecting the crowns of trees and shrubs in the Neotropics; the long, dangling rhizomorphs with lateral prongs probably colonize neighboring trees.

Crinipellis brasiliensis, a new species based on morphological and molecular data.

Crinipellis perniciosa infects a diversity of hosts causing severe damage to T. cacao production in many Brazilian growing regions. We compared isolates of Crinipellis from different geographic

The cacao pathogen Moniliophthora roreri (Marasmiaceae) possesses biallelic A and B mating loci but reproduces clonally

An ancestral reconstruction analysis is performed to show that the ancestor of M. roreri is predicted to be heterothallic and tetrapolar, which together with sliding window analyses support that the A and B mating loci are likely unlinked and follow a tetrapolars organization within the genome.

Moniliophthora aurantiaca sp. nov., a Polynesian species occurring in littoral forests

A phylogenetic analysis of nLSU and ITS sequences indicates that Moniliophthora aurantiaca has an affinity with the Central and South American members of the genus.

Major clades of Agaricales: a multilocus phylogenetic overview

An overview of the phylogeny of the Agaricales is presented based on a multilocus analysis of a six-gene region supermatrix, which recovered six major clades, which are recognized informally and labeled theAgaricoid, Tricholomatoid, Marasmioid, Pluteoid, Hygrophoroid and Plicaturopsidoid clades.
