The division of the genus Lepista

  title={The division of the genus Lepista},
  author={H. Harmaja},
The genus Lepista (Fr.) W.G. Smith sensu Harmaja (Agaricales) is divided into two subgenera and seven sections. The subgenera are distinguished by the degree of spore wall cyanophily and different ability of the mycelium to produce nitrite in culture. A short note is given on the responses of spores and basidia of Lepista to cotton blue and acetocarmine. Weakly carminophilic basidial granules are reported in some Lepista-like fungi for the first time. Agaricus svaveolens Fr. is considered a… Expand
Lepista polygonarum and Prunulus lammiensis, two new combinations in the Agaricales
Mycena lammiensis Harmaja (Mycenaceae) is transferred to Prunulus Murrill , a segregate genus comprising species around M pura (Pers. : Fr.) Kumm, as Pr unulus lammienis (Harmaja) Harmaja. Expand
Notes on Clitocybe s. lato (Agaricales)
Diagnostic characters of Clitocybe are discussed; among the less known ones are: (i) a proportion of the detached spores adhere in tetrads in microscopic mounts, (ii) the spore wall is cyanophilic, and (iii) the mycelium is capable of reducing nitrate. Expand
Studies on the agaric genera Singerocybe n. gen. and Squamanita
Descriptions are given of the new genus Singerocybe Harmaja and of the type species, S. viscida Harmaja, and two new Finnish localities of S. hydrogramma, one of them being the most northern known for the species. Expand
Successful cultivation of a valuable wild strain of Lepista sordida from Thailand
This study is the first report of the successful cultivation of a wild strain of L. sordida from Thailand and the morphological description and molecular examination of the fungus are included, in order to confirm the identification of the species. Expand
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, with at least 11 origins of the ectomycorrhizal habit appear to have evolved in the AgARicales. Expand
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.

Singerella n. gen., a separate genus for Clitocybe hydrogramma
The most important distinguishing character of the section Bulluliferae is the presence of peculiar vesicles in the hyphae of the epicutis, here called »intercalary dermatcchrysocystidia», which are lacking in the other speci•es of Clitocybe, and are probably also absent from the remainder of the Agaricales.

A revision of the generic limit between Clitocybe and Lepista
HARMAJA, H . 1974: A rev1swn of the generic limit between Clitocybe and Lepi&ta. Kars.tenia 14: 82-92. On the basis of various spore characters, some already no1ed but partly neglected (e.g.Expand
The genus Clitocybe (Agaricales) in Fennoscandia
A taxonomic revision is made of the agaric genus Clitocybe (Fr.) Staude in Fennoscandia, the material comprising 3220 specimens, and some macroscopical, sporal, anatomical, ecological and other characters as well as certain responses to ultr~violet light are shown to be ± uniform throughout Clitocytes, and may thus be diagnostic of the genus.

Nitratreduktion durch pilze und die verwertbarkeit des merkmals für die systematik
A correlation between nitrate reduction and ecological requirements was shown only for Deuteromycetes, where the pathogenic Dermatophytes do not use nitrate-nitrogen and the nematode trapping Arthrobotrys dactyloides is unable to reduce nitrate. Expand
