  journal={Fungal Diversity},
We present a taxonomic study of ‘group Favolus’ and related species in Polyporus. Phylogenetic analyses of nurLSU and ITS regions revealed that the infrageneric ‘group Favolus’ is divided into two main clades. Fungi within the group share laterally stipitate basidiocarps, with non-crustose stipe surfaces, and are distinguishable by the morphology of the pileus surface. One clade is characterized by species with hyaline to brown cutis, composed of hyaline to brown agglutinated generative hyphae… 

Polyporus hapalopus sp. nov. (Polyporales, Basidiomycota) from China based on morphological and molecular data

Phylogenetically, on the basis of the combined internal transcribed spacer and nuclear large subunit rDNA sequences, P. hapalopus is nested within the Polyporus sensu lato clade, but is separated from four previously established subclades and from other known species.

Phylogeny and global diversity of Polyporus group Melanopus (Polyporales, Basidiomycota)

This study explores the phylogeny and species diversity of Polyporus sensu lato focusing on the group Melanopus based on global samples, and recovers four clades, Favolus, Neofavlus,Melanopus and PolyporellusClades, while several species in the morphological groups MelAnopus andPolyporus were outside these clades.

Leifiporia rhizomorpha gen. et sp. nov. and L. eucalypti comb. nov. in Polyporaceae (Basidiomycota)

Investigation for more representative taxa in the Polyporaceae based on nLSU sequences demonstrated that the genus Leifiporia formed a monophyletic lineage with a strong support, and morphological and molecular evidence confirmed the placement of the new genus in the core polyporoid clade.

An overview of Favolus from the Neotropics, including four new species

F. brasiliensis is now known to represent a species complex and F. rugulosus is proposed as a new related species in Favolus, a monophyletic genus of polypores that causes white rot of various woody plants.

Evolutionary relationships of Bresadolia (Basidiomycota, Polyporales) based on molecular and morphological evidence

The phylogenetic results showed that B. paradoxa and P. udus are not conspecific, and both species form independent lineages that cluster together within a monophyletic genus recognized here as Bresadolia.

Phylogenetic relationships and morphological evolution in Lentinus, Polyporellus and Neofavolus, emphasizing southeastern Asian taxa

All three multigene analyses and the single-gene analysis using ITS strongly supported Polyporus tricholoma as the sister group of the Lentinus/Polyporellus clade; only the 28S rRNA phylogeny failed to support this placement.

Neofavolus yunnanensis sp. nov. (Polyporales, Basidiomycota) from China: evidence from morphology and DNA sequence data

A new wood-inhabiting species, Neofavolus yunnanensis, is proposed based on a combination of morphological features and molecular evidence. The species is characterized by an annual growth, laterally

Taxonomy and multi-gene phylogeny of Datronia(Polyporales, Basidiomycota)

Phylogeny based on ITS, nLSU and RBP2 regions revealed that Datronia in current sense includes species belonging to three distantly related clades in polypores, and the Datroniella in a restricted sense is proposed for the type species.

Decrypting the Polyporus dictyopus complex: Recovery of Atroporus Ryvarden and segregation of Neodictyopus gen. nov. (Polyporales, Basidiomyocta)

This study showed that at least five distinct species were hidden under the name P. dictyopus, and two unrelated generic lineages, each one represented by different species, are reported.



Taxonomic study of Asian species of Echinochaete (Polyporaceae, Basidiomycota) and description of E. maximipora sp. nov.

A taxonomic investigation of Echinochaete species collected from Japan and Malaysia using molecular phylogenetic analysis and morphological observations concludes that E. russiceps falls within the range of those collections in one of the detected clades, and is concluded that this name represents that clade.

The taxonomy of Echinochaete and Polyporus s. str. in southern South America

The research revealed one species of Echinochaete and nineteen species and one variety of Polyporus s.

The basidiomycete genus Polyporus - an emendation based on phylogeny and putative secondary structure of ribosomal RNA molecules

A major taxonomic shift is suggested, supported by molecular and morphological characters, and allowing inclusion of species with gilled hymenophores in Polyporus.

Polyporus phyllostachydis sp. nov. with notes on other rhizophilic species of Polyporus (Basidiomycota, Polyporaceae)

Polyporus phyllostachydis is described and illustrated as a new species. This species is characterized by its occurrence on bamboo roots, the small and centrally stipitate basidiocarps, the white

Taxonomic study on a threatened polypore, Polyporus pseudobetulinus, and a morphologically similar species, P. subvarius

A taxonomic study based on morphological and phylogenetic characters revealed that the specimens referred to as ‘Polyporus pseudobetulinus’ in Japan actually represent two distinct species, namely,

Phylogenetic classification of Trametes (Basidiomycota, Polyporales) based on a five–marker dataset

The use of a single generic name (Trametes) for the trametoid clade is considered to be the best taxonomic and nomenclatural option as the morphological concept of Trametes would remain almost unchanged, few new nomenClatural combinations would be necessary, and the classification of additional species based on morphological characters alone will still be possible.

Second report of Polyporus longiporus and its phylogenetic position

Phylogenetic analysis based on the ITS region revealed that P. longiporus forms a terminal, strongly supported clade that is closely related to P. ciliatus.

Polypores new to Japan 1. Species ofPolyporus, with a note onP. hartmanni

Polyporus admirabilis, P. dictyopus, P. guianensis, P. pseudobetulinus, P. tubaeformis andP. udus are reported for Japan for the first time.Polyporus tubaeformis had been confused withP. melanopus,

Mycological Notes. II

As this is the first species described and also represents the group for which Nummularia, when treated as a separate genus, has most generally been used by subsequent writers, it would seem in the interests of uniformity and stability of generic names to apply the name to N. Bulliardi and its congeneric species.

Polypore diversity in China with an annotated checklist of Chinese polypores

The majority of the Chinese polypores are white rot fungi, whereas 98 species (14%) cause a brown rot; 520 species (74%) were found on angiosperm wood, of which 434 species (62%) grew exclusively on angosperm wood; 459 species (65%)were found on fallen trunks, which seem to be the most frequent substrate for polypore species.
