Phylogenetic and taxonomic studies on the brown-rot fungi Postia and related genera are carried out, and four new genera and species are established, and nine new species are identified.
Species Diversity, Molecular Phylogeny, and Ecological Habits of Fomitopsis (Polyporales, Basidiomycota)
Fomitopsis is a worldwide brown-rot fungal genus of Polyporales, which grows on different gymnosperm and angiosperm trees and has important ecological functions and economic values. In this study,
Morphological characters and molecular data reveal three new species of Fomitopsis (Basidiomycota)
Phylogenetic analyses carried out based on sequences from the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) regions, confirmed the affinities of three new species within Fomitopsis sensu stricto.
Species diversity, molecular phylogeny and ecological habits of Cyanosporus (Polyporales, Basidiomycota) with an emphasis on Chinese collections
The number of Cyanosporus species to 35 around the world including 23 species from China are expanded, and four new species are described based on the evidence of morphological characters, distribution areas, host trees and molecular phylogenetic analyses inferred.
Two new brown rot polypores from tropical China
Two new brown-rot species, collected from southern China, are nested within the clades of Fomitopsis sensu stricto and Oligoporus sensu strictero, respectively, and their positions are strongly supported in the Maximum Likelihood phylogenetic tree of the concatenated the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) regions.
Taxonomy and Phylogeny of Polyporus Group Melanopus (Polyporales, Basidiomycota) from China
The phylogenetic result confirmed that the previously so-called Melanopus group is not a monophyletic assemblage, and species in this group distribute into two distinct clades: the Picipes clade and the Squamosus clade.
Taxonomy and multi-gene phylogeny of Haploporus (Polyporales, Basidiomycota)
Three species in Haploporus are described as new based on morphological differences and molecular phylogenetic analyses inferred from the internal transcribed spacer (ITS), the large subunit nuclear ribosomal RNA gene (nLSU), the small subunit mitochondrial rRNA gene (mtSSU) and the second subunit of RNA polymerase II (rpb2) sequences.
Species Diversity and Molecular Phylogeny of Cyanosporus (Polyporales, Basidiomycota)
Five new species of brown-rot fungal genus Cyanosporus are discovered based on morphological features and molecular data and fifteen species previously belonging to the Postia caesia complex are transferred to Cyanospora and proposed as new combinations.
Phylogeny and taxonomy of Favolus (Basidiomycota)
Four new species of Favolus were identified based on morphological characteristics and phylogenetic analysis of the internal transcribed spacer region and 18S and 28S genes of the nuc rDNA, translation elongation factor 1-α gene, TEF1-α, and β-tubulin gene.
Morphological and molecular identification of two new Ganoderma species on Casuarina equisetifolia from China
Two new Ganoderma species were collected from south-eastern China and described on the basis of morphological characters and phylogenetic analyses of sequences of the internal transcribed spacer region, the translation elongation factor 1-α gene (EF1-α) and the second subunit of RNA polymerase II (RPB2).


Phylogeny and taxonomy of the genus Abundisporus (Polyporales, Basidiomycota)
Seven taxa have been recognized in the genus Abundisporus with both morphological and molecular evidence and a new species is described, A. mollissimus, which is characterized by its soft, perennial, effused-reflexed to pileate basidiocarp.
New species and phylogeny of Perenniporia based on morphological and molecular characters
Three new resupinate, poroid, wood-inhabiting fungi, Perenniporia aridula, P. bannaensis and P. substraminea, are introduced on the basis of morphological and molecular characters and formed monophyletic lineages with strong support in P perennialiporia s.s. used in this study.
Morphology and molecular phylogeny for two new species of Fomitopsis (Basidiomycota) from South China
Two new species of Fomitopsis from South China are described based on morphological characters and molecular evidence. Fomitopsis cystidiata sp. nov. is unique due to its annual and conchoidal to
Phylogenetic relationships of Antrodia species and related taxa based on analyses of nuclear large subunit ribosomal DNA sequences.
The generic status of Fibroporia, but not Amyloporia, was supported in this study, indicating that Antrodia is not a monophyletic group.
Molecular phylogeny and morphology reveal a new species of Amyloporia (Basidiomycota) from China
Morphology and phylogenetic analysis of rDNA ITS sequences support this new species and a new combination Amyloporia subxantha is proposed, which is characterized by resupinate, annual basidiocarps, cream to yellowish buff pore surface when fresh, which becomes yellowish brown to clay-buff upon drying.
