This study reports the distribution and biodiversity of hypogeal fungi (HF) in Armenia. Six species of HF (Tuber aestivum, Elaphomyces granulatus, Octaviania stephensii, Rhizopogon roseolus, R. luteolus, Cremeogaster klikae) were previously reported in Armenia. Our collections were identified by morphological and/or molecular methods using rDNA-ITS sequence data. Described 12 species belong to Glomeromycota (Glomus macrocarpum), Ascomycota (Elaphomyces muricatus, E. granulatus, Hydnotrya tulasnei, Tuber rapaeodorum, T. rufum, T. scruposum, Tirmania pinoyi, Picoa juniperi) and Basidiomycota (Hymenogaster griseus, H. olivaceus, Octaviania stephensii). Ten species (except O. stephensii and E. granulatus) were firstly reported in Armenia and South Caucasus region. Ecological characteristics, particularly type of soils and host plants of Armenian HF were revealed.

Abstract

This study reports the distribution and biodiversity of hypogeal fungi (HF) in Armenia. Six species of HF (Tuber aestivum, Elaphomyces granulatus, Octaviania stephensii, Rhizopogon roseolus, R. luteolus, Cremeogaster klikae) were previously reported in Armenia. Our collections were identified by morphological and/or molecular methods using rDNA-ITS sequence data. Described 12 species belong to Glomeromycota (Glomus macrocarpum), Ascomycota (Elaphomyces muricatus, E. granulatus, Hydnotrya tulasnei, Tuber rapaeodorum, T. rufum, T. scruposum, Tirmania pinoyi, Picoa juniperi) and Basidiomycota (Hymenogaster griseus, H. olivaceus, Octaviania stephensii). Ten species (except O. stephensii and E. granulatus) were firstly reported in Armenia and South Caucasus region. Ecological characteristics, particularly type of soils and host plants of Armenian HF were revealed.
