We describe three new species of Elaphomyces from eastern North America. Of the three, Elaphomyces loebiae is the rarest, known only from North Carolina and South Carolina, and appears to associate primarily with ectomycorrhizal hardwoods but possibly also with conifers. Elaphomyces cibulae is widely distributed but disjunct from Florida, Mississippi, and North Carolina. Elaphomyces cibulae seems to primarily associate with Quercus species. Elaphomyces mitchelliae has the widest distribution of… 
Two new deer truffle species, Elaphomyces marmoratus and Elaphomyces fuscus spp. nov., from a secondary forest in Japan

Signaling from below: rodents select for deeper fruiting truffles with stronger volatile emissions.
The role of fruiting depth, VOC emissions, and protein content in selection by five rodent species is explored and it is suggested that VOCs are under strong selective pressures relative to protein rewards.

Fungal Systematics and Evolution
Acacia mangium plantations account for more than 50 % of the exotic plantations in Vietnam. A new black butt symptom was discovered in 2012, followed by the wilting sign in Acacia seedlings in Tuyen
Fungal Systematics and Evolution
The leaf spot disease of Pongamia pinnata caused by an asperisporium-like asexual morph, which is usually referred to as Asperisporium pongamiae, is quite common during monsoon seasons in India.


Elaphomyces species (Elaphomycetaceae, Eurotiales) from Bartlett Experimental Forest, New Hampshire, USA
Five of the six Elaphomyces species are putatively associated with Tsuga canadensis, a tree species in regional decline, and it is reported partially consumed ascomata or rodent fecal samples containing spores, indicating that small mammals play a key role in dispersing these Elaphomeces species and that the Elphomyces are an important part of the small mammals’ diet.
New species of Elaphomyces (Elaphomycetaceae, Eurotiales, Ascomycota) from tropical rainforests of Cameroon and Guyana*
The phylogenetic analysis suggests that a common ancestor is shared between some Elaphomyces species from Africa and South America, and that species of the stalked, volvate genus Pseudotulostoma may be nested in Elphomyces.
The genus Elaphomyces (Ascomycota, Eurotiales): a ribosomal DNA-based phylogeny and revised systematics of European ‘deer truffles’
Combined phylogenetic analyses yielded molecular support to sections Elaphomyces and Ceratogaster, while a third, basal lineage encompasses the sections Malacodermei and Ascoscleroderma as well as the tropical genus Pseudotulostoma.
Australian species of Elaphomyces (Elaphomycetaceae, Eurotiales, Ascomycota)
The sequestrate ascomycete genus Elaphomyces is described and illustrated from Australia. The following thirteen new species are described: Elaphomyces aurantias, E. austrogranulatus, E.
New Elaphomyces species (Elaphomycetaceae, Eurotiales, Ascomycota) from Guyana
This is the first report of Elaphomyces ascomata associated with ectomycorrhizal members of the Fabaceae and also for the genus from the lowland South American tropics.
Elaphomyces spinoreticulatus sp.nov., with notes on Canadian species of Elaphomyces
The status of the fungal genus Elaphomyces (Ascomycotina, Elaphomycetales) in Canada is reviewed with notes based mainly on collections in Kew from Nova Scotia made by K. A. Harrison in the 1950s.
Sequestrate fungi of New Zealand: Elaphomyces (Ascomycota, Eurotiales, Elaphomycetaceae)
Four species of the sequestrate fungal genus Elaphomyces are reported from New Zealand, associated with Leptospermum spp.
Elaphomyces appalachiensis and E. verruculosus sp. nov. (Ascomycota Eurotiales, Elaphomycetaceae) from eastern North America

Synthesis of Elaphomyces muricatus + Pinus sylvestris ectomycorrhizae
Ectomycorrhizal morphology, mantle anatomy, and cultural characteristics of E. muricatus were examined in view of the possible relationship to Cenococcum geophilum and agreed in all respects with ectomy Corrhizae associated with E. Muricatus ascocarps.
Analysis of sample value distributions indicated that samples of small total area (<800 m2) tended to overestimate sporocarp biomass, because biomass was strongly skewed toward high values.
