Species of the genus Macrolepiota (Agaricaceae) in China were investigated on the basis of morphology and DNA sequences data. Six species, i.e., M. detersa, M. dolichaula, M. mastoidea, M. orientiexcoriata, M. procera, and M. velosa are recognized, of which M. detersa and M. orientiexcoriata are new species. All of them are described and illustrated with line drawings, and a key is provided to those recognized species. The taxonomic uncertainty of M. crustosa, originally described from China… 
Macrolepiota in Korea: New Records and a New Species
According to the results, the combination of ITS locus and morphology proved to be a robust approach to evaluate the taxonomic status of Macrolepiota species in Korea.
Description of Lepiotaceous Fungal Species of the Genera Chlorophyllum, Clarkeinda, Macrolepiota, Pseudolepiota, and Xanthagaricus, from Laos and Thailand
Phylogenetic analyses based on internal transcribed spacer (nrITS) region, the large subunit nuclear ribosomal (nrLSU) DNA and RNA polymerase II second largest subunit (rpb2) genes provide evidence for the placement of the species covered.
Sequestrate species of Agaricus and Macrolepiota from Australia: new species and combinations and their position in a calibrated phylogeny
Australian collections of sequestrate Agaricaceae were examined with morphological and molecular data and the majority were found to belong to the genera Agaricus and Macrolepiota, and the sequestrate genus Barcheria is retained as a distinct taxon.
Phylogeny of Entoloma s.l. subgenus Pouzarella, with descriptions of five new species from China
Taxonomy and phylogeny of Entoloma s.l. subgenus Pouzarella in China are carried out based on morphological characters and molecular data. Seven species in subg. Pouzarella are recognized in China
Taxonomy and phylogeny of Macrolepiota: two new species from Brazil
Macrolepiota cyanolamellata and M. sabulosa from subtropical and tropical regions, respectively, are proposed as new species as well as molecular phylogenetic analyses of the nuc rDNA internal transcribed spacer region ITS1-5 and the combined data set ITS + nuclear large subunit rDNA (28S) + RNA polymerase II second largest (RPB2).
Four new species in Leucoagaricus (Agaricaceae, Basidiomycota) from Asia
Phylogenetic analyses inferred from internal transcribed spacer (ITS) and region 6–7 of the gene for the second largest subunit of RNA polymerase II (rpb2) sequences show that the novel taxa are nested within a well-supported clade jointly formed by members of Leucoagaricus section Rubrotincti and subgenus Sericeomyces.
Notes, outline and divergence times of Basidiomycota
Divergence times as additional criterion in ranking provide additional evidence to resolve taxonomic problems in the Basidiomycota taxonomic system, and also provide a better understanding of their phylogeny and evolution.

Diversity of Lepiota (Agaricales) in northern Thailand
The highest number of Lepiota species appeared in June to August, when high rainfall occurs, and the highest diversity was found in the section Stenosporae as indicated by the H′ index.
Multigene Molecular Phylogeny and Biogeographic Diversification of the Earth Tongue Fungi in the Genera Cudonia and Spathularia (Rhytismatales, Ascomycota)
The molecular phylogenetic relationships within Cudonia and Spathularia are explored using maximum likelihood and Bayesian inference analyses based on 111 collections from across the Northern Hemisphere, finding that the large-scale geological and climatic events in Oligocene may have triggered evolutionary radiations in this group of fungi in East Asia.

Type studies on agarics described by N. Patouillard (and his co-authors) from Vietnam
Thirty-six types of agarics described by N. Patouillard, either alone or with other mycologists, from Vietnam were critically restudied. Eight new combinations are made. They are Mycena bambusa (Pat.
