Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A study of Israeli Stereum species diversity resulted in four species: Stereum gausapatum, S. hirsutum, S. sanguinolentum, and S. subpileatum. A new form, S. hirsutum f. lobulatum, is described from the species complex, and S. gausapatum and S. sanguinolentum are recorded as new species for Israeli mycobiota. Taxa are described and microstructural features are illustrated based on specimens collected from northern Israeli forests. Notes on host preference, morphological variability, distribution, and taxonomic relationships are provided. A key to Israeli Stereum species is given.
