Observations on the genus Omphalotus in Australia

Observations on the genus Omphalotus in Australia

Mycologia Helvetica 6(2): 91-100

A phenotypically variable taxon with luminescence and subglobose to short elliptical spores has been described as a Pleurotus under several different species names in Australia. The variable levels of luminescence and general coloration of the fruiting bodies suggested that more than one taxon might be involved. Genetic analysis revealed a bifactorial matingsystem. Intercompatibility of all phenotypic variants was achieved using single spore isolates. A new combination in the genus Omphalotus has been proposed for this taxon.
