Ghobad-Nejhad, Masoomeh & Heikki Kotiranta. Re-evaluation of Radulomyces rickii and notes on Radulomyces and Phlebiella (Basidiomycota). Mycotaxon 102: 101-111. 2007.

ABSTRACT: Three new collections of a corticioid fungus occurring on Taxus and Juniperus in NW Iran were compared with the type of Radulomyces rickii, and they appeared to be conspecific. SEM pictures of basidiospores were obtained from the type, Iranian material, and R. confluens and their spore measurements were compared. Both R. confluens and R. rickii have smooth and non-smooth basidiospores. An emended description of R. rickii is given and possible links between Radulomyces and Phlebiella with regard to their spore and basidium morphology and recent DNA studies is discussed.

KEYWORDS: Arasbaran forests, spore dimorphism, taxonomy
