Identification of endophytic fungi from leaves of Pandanaceae based on their morphotypes and DNA sequence data from southern Thailand

, Chada Norphanphoun, Asha Dissanayake, Ruvishika Jayawardena and Kasun Thambugala are thanked for their help and valuable suggestions. Samantha C. Karunarathna thanks Yunnan Provincial Department of Human

Two new species of Xanthagaricus and some notes on Heinemannomyces from Asia

Xanthagaricus flavosquamosus and X. necopinatus, two new species of Agaricaceae, are described and illustrated from Asia. Macroscopically, both species are closely related to each other, but there are obvious micromorphological and molecular differences between them. Morphological and phylogenetic data showed that the two new species are distinct from other known species of the...

Fungal diversity notes 929–1035: taxonomic and phylogenetic contributions on genera and species of fungi

This article is the ninth in the series of Fungal Diversity Notes, where 107 taxa distributed in three phyla, nine classes, 31 orders and 57 families are described and illustrated. Taxa described in the present study include 12 new genera, 74 new species, three new combinations, two reference specimens, a re-circumscription of the epitype, and 15 records of sexual-asexual morph...

Three new species of Lentinus from northern Thailand

dominated by Castanopsis armata and Dipterocarpus sp., 15 July 2008, Samantha C. Karunarathna (MFLU08 1388) Etymology megacystidiatus, in reference to the very large sclerocystidia of the taxon. Description

Finding needles in haystacks: linking scientific names, reference specimens and molecular data for Fungi

DNA phylogenetic comparisons have shown that morphology-based species recognition often underestimates fungal diversity. Therefore, the need for accurate DNA sequence data, tied to both correct taxonomic names and clearly annotated specimen data, has never been greater. Furthermore, the growing number of molecular ecology and microbiome projects using high-throughput sequencing...
