Robledo, Gerardo L. & Mario Rajchenberg. South American polypores : first annotated checklist from Argentinean Yungas. Mycotaxon 100: 5–9. 2007.

ABSTRACT: A preliminary checklist of the polypore mycota of “Yungas”, subtropical mountain forests of northwestern Argentina, is presented. An intensive search of records in literature was done, and polypore exsiccatae from that phytogeographic province kept at the main Argentinean herbaria were studied. A total of 850 specimens were revised and 111 species were determined. Phellinus laevigatus and Skeletocutis stellae are recorded for the first time in South America; 8 species are new records for Argentina and 31 new records for the region. The new combination Dichomitus hexagonoides is proposed.

The complete checklist can be found on the Mycotaxon Regional Checklists page.

KEYWORDS:  fungal diversity, wood decay fungi, neotropic montane forests
