The novel species Agaricus lamelliperditus and A. colpeteii are described and illustrated, and affinities to other taxa determined by analysis of ITS sequence data. Both taxa resemble several other recently described Australian sequestrate Agaricus species, in particular A. pachydermus, A. wariatodes and A. chartaceus, which all have a powdery hymenophore from very early stages of basidiome formation. Both novel species have affinities to section Minores.

A new species of Agaricus section Minores from China
Agaricus gemloides sp. nov. is characterised by its reddish brown fibrillose squamose on the pileus, relatively slender basidiome and broader basidiospores. In this article, it is introduced based on
A new section and species of AgaricussubgenusPseudochitonia from Thailand
According to their distinct morphological characteristics, phylogenetic position and relatively old divergence time, a new section Cymbiformes is proposed and this section is represented by a new species A.angusticystidiatus, characterised by the strong iodoform odour of basidiomes and cymbiform basidiospores.
A worldwide nomenclature revision of sequestrate Russula species
This work combines the overlapping sequestrate generic names Bucholtzia, Cystangium, Elasmomyces, Gymnomyces and Martellia with the agaricoid genus Russula to create clarity in the understanding of the evolutionary affiliations among sequestrate fungi - particularly the Russulaceae.
Fungal Systematics and Evolution
We describe a novel sequestrate genus and species, Asperosporus subterraneus gen. et sp. nov., found associated with nursery production of ferns in south Florida. This truffle species has a unique
Mycosphere Essay 8: A review of genus Agaricus in tropical and humid subtropical regions of Asia
This review includes Agaricus species that are known to be highly valued as edible and medicinal mushrooms, and provides a comprehensive checklist of species described from the tropical and humid subtropical regions of Asia until the end of 2015.
Multiple evolutionary origins of sequestrate species in the agaricoid genus Chlorophyllum
Six sequestrate lineages of Chlorophyllum appear to have evolved in at least three independent gasteromycetation events, and the phylogenetic placement of C. arizonicum is confirmed after successful sequencing of the century-old holotype and an undescribed sister lineage of this species detected.
Edible species of Agaricus (Agaricaceae) from Xinjiang Province (Western China)
Morphological and phylogenetic comparison with species of five sections of Agaricus possessing the red discolouration trait showed that the specimens belonged to four species, two of which, A. sinodeliciosus sp.
Study in Agaricus subgenus Minores and allied clades reveals a new American subgenus and contrasting phylogenetic patterns in Europe and Greater Mekong Subregion
Thirty-eight species of A. Minores from this region of Asia were distributed in multiple clades that successively diverged over the past 24 million years, suggesting a major species diversification following the middle Miocene climatic optimum.
Tropic origins, a dispersal model for saprotrophic mushrooms in Agaricus section Minores with descriptions of sixteen new species
Agaricus section Minores contains the richest species diversity within the genus. Its Phylogeny is firstly presented by a Maximum Likelihood tree generated through DNA sequences from four gene


Contribution to the study of gasteroid and secotioid fungi of Chihuahua, Mexico
Including the twenty-seven new records reported herein, fifty-seven taxa of gasteroid fungi are now known from Chihuahua, including a new record for the Mexican mycobiota.
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.
Australasian species of Macowanites are sequestrate species of Russula (Russulaceae, Basidiomycota)
Nine new species of the agaricoid genus Russula are presented and nomenclatural changes for five previously published Australasian species are proposed.
Agaricus section Xanthodermatei: a phylogenetic reconstruction with commentary on taxa
DNA sequences from the ITS1+2 region of the nuclear rDNA were analyzed to identify and characterize phylogenetically distinct entities and to construct a hypothesis of relationships, indicating that the traditional sectional characters noted above are good unifying characters that appear to have arisen only once within Agaricus.

This study provides evidence for independent emergence of these secotioid fungi from Agaricus ancestors, most likely from species placed in the section Arvenses as inferred from molecular data.
A phylogenetic reconstruction and emendation of Agaricus section Duploannulatae
DNA sequence data from the ITS segments of the nuclear ribosomal DNA region was used to identify characters shared by section Duploannulatae, to further delimit species-level taxa within the section, and to develop a phylogenetic hypothesis.
Genera in the family Agaricaceae: evidence from nrITS and nrLSU sequences.
The circumscription of the family Agaricaceae, its genera and their characters are investigated, and the monovelangiocarpic Chamaemyces fracidus appears to be basal to the family and provides clues to the morphology of the ancestral AgARicaceae.
Ontogeny and phylogeny of gasteroid members of Agaricaceae (Basidiomycetes)
The focus of this work are the gasteromycetation events of fungi related to the Basidiomycete family of Agaricaceae. These fungi occur in a diversity of shapes, and yet are all adapted to angio- or
Results suggest that Agaricus may be monophyletic, but fur- ther tests should include taxa from the subgenera Langagaricus and Conioagaricus, andPhylogenetic hypotheses are given for taxa that have been difficult to classify based on other forms of data, including the placement of A. bernardii.
Molecular evolution of Agaricus species based on ITS and LSU rDNA sequences
The results show that most morphological features likely have evolved in apparently similar ways multiple times independently during evolution, and that the secotioid A. inapertus, Gyrophragmium dunalii and Longula texensis evolved from Agaricus species in Clade I.
