Lepidostromatales Hodkinson & Lücking, in Hodkinson et al., Fungal diversity. 64(1):165-179 (2014)
Diagnostic characters: Differing from Agaricales, Amylocorticiales, Atheliales, and Boletales in the clavarioid basidiomata combined with a lichenized basal thallus, and from Cantharellales in the lichenization with a chlorococcoid photobiont.
Index Fungorum number: IF803215
Type family: Lepidostromataceae Ertz, Eb. Fischer, Killmann, Sérus. & Lawrey, in Ertz et al., American Journal of Botany 95: 1553 (2008)
Figure 1. Maximum-likelihood tree of nuLSU sequences of selected Basidiomycota focusing on Atheliales and Lepidostroma s.lat. Supported branches for major and order-level clades and for genus-level clades within Lepidostromatales are indicated by thick lines and both bootstrap support values (above branches) and Bayesian posterior support (below branches) are given (only values of 70 % bootstrap support and larger and 0.95 posterior probability and larger are given). Order-level clades are highlighted in color to facilitate their distinction. The newly proposed genera for Lepidostromatales are also indicated.
Figure 2. Maximum-likelihood tree of combined nuLSU, TEF1, and RPB2 sequences of selected Basidiomycota focusing on Agaricomycetidae. Supported branches for order-level clades are indicated by thick lines and bootstrap support values are given.
