Not all fungi are the same...

...Even if they look like.

The proof is presented in a new publication of chinese colleagues and dr. Vlasák. Based on extensive screening of morphological features and genetic data, they reorganised fundamentally the taxonomy of brown-rot fungi (polypore fungi), established 6 new genera, and discovered 4 new species of them. Complete description of species, including the identification key, were published in Fungal diversity (IF=6.99) this year. The usefulness of their work can be deduced from the fact that the paper has been cited 4 times in last months.

How the new species and their hybrids look like can be seen in publication
