  journal={Mycological Progress},
Two new species from northern Thailand, Asterostroma bambusicola and A. vararioides, are described and illustrated. Asterostroma bambusicola is characterized by globose, echinulate, and amyloid basidiospores and growing on rotten bamboo. Asterostroma vararioides is distinguished by the presence of Vararia-like dichohyphae, subglobose, smooth, and amyloid basidiospores and growing on bark of living angiosperm trees. In the phylogenetic tree inferred from a combined dataset of ITS and nLSU… 

Taxonomy and phylogeny of Dichostereum (Russulales), with descriptions of three new species from southern China

Nine species of Dichostereum were subjected to phylogenetic analyses, based on a combined dataset of ITS1-5.8S-ITS2-nrLSU-tef1 sequences, and three species are described and illustrated as new to science based on the morphological and molecular evidence.

Taxonomy and phylogeny of Lopharia s.s., Dendrodontia, Dentocorticium and Fuscocerrena (Basidiomycota, Polyporales)

Abstract Eleven taxa of Lopharia s.s., Dendrodontia, Dentocorticium and Fuscocerrena in Polyporales are included in the phylogenetic analyses of nuc rDNA ITS1-5.8S-ITS2 (ITS), D1-D2 domains of nuc

Taxonomy and Phylogeny of Peniophora Sensu Lato (Russulales, Basidiomycota)

An intensive taxonomic and phylogenetic study on Peniophora sensu lato based on analyses of concatenated ITS1-5 and 28S sequence data of all available species worldwide indicated that the species diversity of the corticioid fungi in Asia is rich and deserves further study.

New records of corticioid fungi in the Bohemian Forest (Czech Republic).

During a survey of 121 plots in the Czech part of the Bohemian Forest (Šumava Mts.) 1168 records of 174 taxa of corticioid fungi were obtained in the years 2017 and 2018. Occurrences of redlisted,



Asterostroma species (Basidiomycota) from mangrove forests in Japan

A new homobasidiomycete, Asterostroma macrosporum, was found in mangrove forests of Iriomote Island, Japan, and phylogenetic analysis using internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region revealed that A. macrosporum is distinctly separated from A.—muscicola.

Perspectives in the new Russulales

The Russulales is one of 12 major lineages recently elucidated by molecular sequence data in the homobasidiomycetes, containing a remarkable variety of sporophore forms from smooth, poroid, hydnoid, lamellate, to labyrinthoid and hymenophore configurations.

Phylogenetic relationships of russuloid basidiomycetes with emphasis on aphyllophoralean taxa

Phylogenetic relationships among russuloid basidiomycetes were investigated using sequence data from the nuclear 5.8S, ITS2 and large-subunit rDNA genes and results suggest that gloeocystidia are a synapomorphy for taxa within the rRussuloid clade while the amyloidity of spores is inconsistent.

A revised checklist of corticioid and hydnoid fungi in China for 2010

The current knowledge of corticioid and hydnoid fungi in China is summarized, and totally 506 species are listed alphabetically.

The recently‐developed statistical method known as the “bootstrap” can be used to place confidence intervals on phylogenies and shows significant evidence for a group if it is defined by three or more characters.

Multiple sequence alignment with the Clustal series of programs

The Clustal series of programs are widely used in molecular biology for the multiple alignment of both nucleic acid and protein sequences and for preparing phylogenetic trees. The popularity of the

Multiple Sequence Alignment.

This chapter first provides some background information and considerations associated with MSA techniques, concentrating on the alignment of protein sequences, and a practical overview of currently available methods and a description of their specific advantages and limitations are given.

MrBayes 3: Bayesian phylogenetic inference under mixed models

MrBayes 3 performs Bayesian phylogenetic analysis combining information from different data partitions or subsets evolving under different stochastic evolutionary models to analyze heterogeneous data sets and explore a wide variety of structured models mixing partition-unique and shared parameters.
