Heterobasidiomycetes from Belize

  • Peter Roberts
Article

Summary

Twenty-eight species of heterobasidiomycetes (phylum Basidiomycota) belonging to the orders Auriculariales, Dacrymycetales, Exidiales, Platygloeales, Sebacinales, Septobasidiales and Tremellales from Belize are described or reported. Endoperplexa phlebioides, Heterochaete pentadelphai and Sebacina pileata are described as new. The genus Aphelariopsis is considered a possible synonym of Septobasidium and the new combination Septobasidium kupemontis is proposed. The new combination Endoperplexa obscura is also proposed.

Fieldwork in Belize was supported by the US National Science Foundation’s Biotic Surveys and Inventories Program, grant DEB-0103621 to the Research Foundation of the State University of New York at Cortland, with collaboration from the Center for Forest Mycology Research, USDA Forest Service. Travel was partly funded by the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. Thanks go to Prof. Tim Baroni, State University of New York, College at Cortland, and to Beatriz Ortiz-Santana, Center for Forest Mycology Research and University of Puerto Rico, for helping organise the visit, and to the local biologists, cooperators, and field staff in Belize.
