Abstract
The systematic affinities of Ganoderma have largely been resolved in the ex tensive publications of Moncalvo and coworkers (Moncalvo et al., 1995a, b; Hseu et al., 1996). The present communication adds further sequences of the ITS1 region of Ganoderma isolates from Poland and corrects some of the cla ssifications of Ganoderma species. The sequence data indicate that G. austr ale and G. adspersum are different species. Both morphological and molecula r data are in accord with an interspecific separation of G. pfeifferi and C . resinaceum. The ITS1 region is particularly suited for the taxonomic segr egation of Ganoderma by molecular methods.
