Abstract

Ectomycorrhizas (ECM) formed by Tom ente ll a species (Thelephorales, Basidiomycota) were collected in beech forests of Hungary and studied using anatomical and molecular phylogenetic methods. The mycobionts were iden- tified by analysing the sequences of nuclear ribosomal DNA (nrDNA) internal transcribed spacer (ITS) regions together with sequences obtained from public databases. At the sam- pling plots, we found the occurrence of 11 Tomentella morphotypes. Among these, six morphotypes (four identified, Tomentella atroarenicolor , Tomentella bryophila , To me nt el la lapida , Tomentella subclavigera , and two unidentified) were morpho-anatomically characterized for the first time. Although the six morphotypes differed anatomically from each other and from To me nt el la ectomycorrhizas described previously, they shared anatomical features common to tomentelloid ectomycorrhizas fungi. These results expand our understanding of the diversity of this widely distributed ectomycorrhizal genus.
