Despite the recent mycologists’ interest in relationships between gasteroid taxa and agaricoid Basidiomycetes lineages and an intensive debate on the evolution of enigmatic secotioid fungi, systematic studies of the genus Galeropsis have received little attention. Here, the taxonomy of this genus is revised based on morphological and nuclear ribosomal DNA (ITS and LSU) data. The genus is shown to be polyphyletic, with at least five phylogenetic lineages corresponding to known genera of…

An Overview on the Taxonomy, Phylogenetics and Ecology of the Psychedelic Genera Psilocybe, Panaeolus, Pluteus and Gymnopilus

This review discusses species identification, taxonomy and classification, available DNA sequence data and psychedelic species in Psilocybe, Panaeolus, Pluteus, and Gymnopilus, as well as similar looking genera that could be harmful.



A Re-Evaluation of Gasteroid and Cyphelloid Species of Entolomataceae from Eastern North America

A recent find of the rarely collected gasteroid species Richoniella asterospora from southeast North America is reported, and molecular annotation and phylogenetic analysis of the holotype suggest an affiliation with two lignicolous European pileate-stipitate species of Entoloma.

A molecular phylogeny of the Russulales including agaricoid, gasteroid and pleurotoid taxa

Analysis of the n-LSU region suggested that synonomy of gasteroid genera into Russula and Lactarius is justifiable, and agaricoid and hypogeous gasteroids genera appear to be polyphyletic.

The genus Parasola: phylogeny and the description of three new species

The phylogeny of Parasola is reconstructed using two nuc rDNA loci, the internal transcribed spacer region and 28S and several putatively undescribed species are identified, of which three are formally described here (Parasola crataegi, P. ochracea, and P. plicatilis-similis).

Two new species of Inocybe from Australia and North America that include novel secotioid forms

The secotioid form of fruit bodies of mushroom-forming fungi may be an intermediate evolutionary modification of epigeous agaricoid or pileate–stipitate forms (i.e., with pileus, spore-bearing

One hundred and seventeen clades of euagarics.

Fungal systematics and evolution : FUSE 4

Eight new species presented are Calostoma areolatum collected in Wuyishan National Park (China), Crinipellis bidens from Hubei Province ( China), Lactifluus sainii from Himalayan India, Inocybe elata from Yunnan (China%), Inocy be himalayensis from Pakistan, and the new combination Conocybe turkestanica, is proposed.

Contribution to the study of Agrocybe pediades complex (Agaricales) in Russia based on nrITS sequences

One large well supported clade consisting of specimens labeled before this study as Agrocybe arenicola, A. semiorbicularis and A. subpediades is revealed, which corresponds to the wide species concept of A. pediades.

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.

Multiple origins of sequestrate fungi related to Cortinarius (Cortinariaceae).

Results show that sequestrate basidiome forms occur in all three major ectomycorrhizal lineages of Cortinariaceae: the clades Cortinarius, Hebeloma/Hymenogaster/Naucoria, and Descolea; and emergent, secotioid, and gastroid forms have evolved independently from each other, and so are not necessarily intermediate forms.

Taxonomy and toxicity of Conocybe lactea and related species.

Nucleotide data confirmed placement of the sequestrate taxon Gastrocybe lateritia in sect.
