Pisolithus hypogaeus sp. nov.: A hypogeous representative of the genus Pisolithus from Western Australia
Thomas, S.R., Dunstan, W.A., Dell, B., Trappe, J.M. and Malajczuk, N. (2003) Pisolithus hypogaeus sp. nov.: A hypogeous representative of the genus Pisolithus from Western Australia. Mycotaxon, 87 . pp. 405-410.
Pisolithus hypogaeus, the first record of a Pisolithus species with a hypogeous habit, occurs in coastal south-western Australia in association with eucalypt ectomycorrhizal hosts on sandy soils. Ribosomal DNA (rDNA) sequencing shows that P. hypogaeus lies within a lineage of other brown- and echinulate-spored Pisolithus spp., and is most closely related to two undescribed epigeous Pisolithus species from Australia.
