Ectomycorrhizal Ramaria species in nutrient-poor Fennoscandian conifer forests with a note on Ramaria botrytis complex.
p. 89–108.Show summary
A herbarium revision (2005 – 2008), and field work by authors (2009 -2011) and by several biologists and amateur mycologists (2009 -2014) have been performed to record the species diversity, distribution and ecology of ectomycorrhizal Ramaria-species in Fennoscandia. Morphological analysis of more than thousand specimens has been carried out, and ca. 650 representative Fennoscandian specimens have been studied molecularly (nrDNA ITS and part of LSU). To stabilize the nomenclature, 87 relevant type specimens of Ramaria species from Europe and North America have been examined morphologically and molecularly.
So far, 46 different species have been identified among Nordic material, and at least 40 of them can be identified morphologically. More than twenty of the species grow in coniferous forests. Less than ten of them are not especially nutrient demanding and prefer boreal, often pine dominated forests. This paper has its focus on the latter group.
Descriptions are provided for R. boreimaxima, R. eosanguinea, R. ‘neoformosa sensu Schild’, R. primulina, R. testaceoflava, R. botrytis, R. ‘botrytis coniferous’ and R. ‘rubripermanens s. Christan 2008’
Our study has shown the need for several nomenclatural-taxonomic changes in the group presented here. Only two of the treated species, R. botrytis and R. testaceoflava, have retained traditionally used names. One of the species has been described as new (R. boreimaxima, 2014). In two cases, type studies using molecular methods have confirmed identity with unknown or little used names in the Nordic countries (R. eosanguinea and R. primulina). The rest of the species need further nomenclatural research and are probably undescribed.

Ectomycorrhizal species of
Ramaria in nutrient rich coniferous forest in Norway.
p. 3–26.Show summary
A herbarium revision (2005 – 2009) and
follow-up studies, including field work (2009
– 2011) of the ectomycorrhizal species of
Ramaria in Norway has been performed, the
latter as part of a project led by the Norwegian
Biodiversity Information Centre. The study
includes use of molecular data (rDNA/ITS),
which combined with morphological analyses
has led to substantial changes in species
delimitation and name-use. Altogether about
20 out of 31 Norwegian species of the ectomycorrhizal
Ramaria are found in rich coniferous
forests, and about half of these are
quite strongly connected to such forests. A
half of these again, may be classified as
typical calcareous species of coniferous
forests. Descriptions are provided for R.
brunneicontusa, R. fennica, R. flava var.
scandinavica, R. flavescens, R. flavoides
agg., R. karstenii, R. ignicolor, R. pallida, R.
rufescens, R. sanguinea, R. schildii, and R.
cf. subtilis. Except for R. pallida, the identity
of the treated species has been clarified
during the mentioned projects.
