Roberts, Peter . Caribbean heterobasidiomycetes: 2. Jamaica . Mycotaxon 96: 83 - 107. 2006.

ABSTRACT: Fifty-five species of heterobasidioid fungi belonging to the orders Atractiellales, Auriculariales, Ceratobasidiales, Dacrymycetales, Exidiales, Platygloeales, Septobasidiales, Tremellales, and Tulasnellales are described or reported from Jamaica. The new species Exidia aeruginosa and Achroomyces dennisii are described and the new combination Exidiopsis scutelliformis proposed, with E. fuliginea as a synonym. Heterochaete verruculosa sensu Bodman (et auct. seq.) is considered a mix of H. verruculosa sensu stricto and Exidia japonica. Twenty-six of the 55 species (47%) are newly recorded from Jamaica; 19 of them (34%) are also new records for the Caribbean islands.
