Poriella subacida gen. & comb. nov., previously known as Perenniporia subacida, which causes white rot, has been documented in temperate and tropical forests. Specimens from Asia, North America, and Europe were examined, including the type specimen of Polylorus subacidus. Sequences of the ITS1-5.8S-ITS2 region, the 28S rDNA, the mitochondrial rDNA small subunit (mtSSU), and the gene encoding the translation elongation factor 1-α (EF1) were generated. In multigene phylogenies (maximum parsimony, maximum likelihood, Bayesian inferences), “Perenniporia subacida” formed a well-supported lineage, distinct from the core “Perenniporia” clade (type species: “P. medulla-panis”), and sister to the “Yuchengia narymica” lineage. We therefore conclude that “P. subacida” should be placed in the new genus “Poriella”gen. nov. Morphologically, “Poriella” is characterized by a di- to trimitic hyphal system, non-truncate basidiospores, and strongly dextrinoid, cyanophilic skeletal hyphae.

1. Introduction

Polyporales is one of the most intensively studied clades of fungi, being of interest to both fungal ecologists and applied scientists [1,2]. The family Polyporaceae accommodates 92 genera [3], and recently many new genera of polypores have been described, such as Amylosporia (B.K. Cui, C.L. Zhao & Y.C. Dai), Crystallicutis (El-Gharabawy and Griffith), Hirticrusta Matozaki (T. Hatt. and Sotome), and Murinicarpus (B.K. Cui and Y.C. Dai) [4,5,6,7]. The family is typified by Polyporus P. Micheli ex Adans. (1763) and many taxa have been separated from Polyporus as new genera over time [1,4,6].
Perenniporia subacida (Peck) Donk (basionym Polyporus subacidus Peck, 1885) is a widespread species of wood-decaying polypores with perennial, resupinate to effused-reflex basidiomes and thick-walled, non-truncate basidiospores. The species has been reported to occur in many forest ecosystems, in boreal, temperate, subtropical, and tropical regions [8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15]. This species was described by Peck (1885) as Polyporus subacidus, but its taxonomic position has long been debated. It has been treated in several genera, but none of these placements have been fully satisfactory [16,17,18,19,20]. Currently, the species is widely accepted in Perenniporia Murrill, which is typed by P. medulla-panis (Jacq.) Donk [8,9,10,11,12,13]. However, Decock and Stalpers argued for a different placement [13].
Molecular studies involving Polyporaceae, mainly based on ITS and/or nLSU sequences, have been carried out [21,22,23,24,25,26,27]. Further studies employing a six-gene dataset have helped to clarify the generic relationships of polyporoid fungi for 373 taxa. The latter study showed that Perenniporia subacida clustered in the core polyporoid clade in which it was related to P. medulla-panis (Jacq.) Donk [23]. Further studies of Perenniporia inferred from nuclear ribosomal 28S and ITS sequence data revealed that P. subacida formed a monophyletic lineage distant from the Perenniporia s.s. [15,16,28].
To resolve the placement of this species, phylogenetic research was carried out employing the ITS, 28S, TEF1 and mtSSU and a comparative morphological study of the type specimen was conducted. We conclude that Perenniporia subacida should be treated as a distinct, new genus as described below.

2. Materials and Methods

2.1. Morphological Studies

Specimens studied are deposited at the Farlow Herbarium of Harvard University (FH), MA, USA, Beijing Forestry University (BJFC), Beijing, China and United States National Fungus Collections (BPI), New York, NY, USA. Macromorphological descriptions were on the basis of field notes and study of specimens. Color terms followed previous studies [29]. Microscopic measurements were made from slide preparations of dried specimens stained with Cotton Blue and Melzer’s reagent by light microscopy [30,31]. Sections were studied using an Olympus BX40 compound microscope (Tokyo, Japan). In presenting spore size variation, 5% of measurements were excluded from each end of the range. The following abbreviations are used: KOH = 5% potassium hydroxide, CB = Cotton Blue, CB+ = cyanophilous; IKI = Melzer’s reagent, IKI– = both non-amyloid and non-dextrinoid, L = mean spore length (arithmetic average of all spores), W = mean spore width (arithmetic average of all spores), Q = mean each spore length/width ratio, n (a/b) = number of spores (a) measured from given number of specimens (b).

2.2. Molecular Techniques and Phylogenetic Analyses

CTAB rapid plant genome extraction kit-DN14 (Aidlab Biotechnologies Co., Ltd., Beijing, China) was used to extract DNA from dried specimens from China and other regions, and 2xTaq PCR Mix (Aidlab Biotechnologies Co., Ltd., Beijing, China) was used to perform PCR products [30]. The primer pair ITS5 and ITS4 were amplified for the ITS region [32]. The primer pair LR0R and LR7 were for the nuclear r28S region [33]. The primer pair MS1 and MS2 were for the mitochondrial SSU region [32]. The primer pair EF1-983F and EF1-2218R were for Tef1 [34]. The PCR cycling program for ITS, mtSSU, 28S and TEF1 followed previous studies [27]. The Beijing Genomics Institute (Beijing, China) was in charge of purifying and direct sequencing of the PCR products. All sequences used in the phylogeny were downloaded from GenBank (Table 1) with references. The sequence alignment was deposited in TreeBase (submission ID 23826).
A previous study [30] was followed for maximum parsimony analysis. The combined multiple genes dataset was analyzed under heuristic search and 1000 homogeneity replicates, giving a P value of 1.000, which is much greater than the 0.01 used in PAUP* version 4.0b10, which means there is no discrepancy among the four loci in reconstructing phylogenetic trees. Trees were constructed in PAUP* version 4.0b10 [44]. All characters were equally weighted and gaps were treated as missing data. Trees were inferred using the heuristic search option with TBR branch swapping and 1000 bootstraps. Max-trees were set to 5000, branches of zero length were collapsed, and all parsimonious trees were saved. Clade robustness was assessed using a bootstrap (BT) analysis with 1000 replicates [45]. DNA sequence data was also analyzed using Maximum Likelihood (ML) with RAxML-HPC2 on Abe through the Cipres Science Gateway [46], with default settings except that branch support was obtained with 1000 rapid bootstrap replicates.
Mr Modeltest 2.3 was used to estimate the best-fit evolution model for each data set for Bayesian inference (BI). The best fit models were general time reversible (GTR)+G for ITS, and general time reversible (GTR)+I+G for nr28S, mtSSU, the exons of Tef1, and the combined dataset. The partitioned mixed model, which allows for model parameters to be estimated separately for each genetic marker, was used in the Bayesian analysis. BI was performed using MrBayes 3.1.2 [47,48,49]. Two runs of four Markov chains were run from random starting trees for two datasets: (ITS+28S) dataset for 5 million generations and (ITS+28S+mtSSU+Tef1) dataset for 10 million generations. Trees were sampled every 100 generations. The first quarter of the generations was by default discarded as burn-in. A majority rule consensus tree of all remaining trees was calculated. Branches that received bootstrap support for maximum likelihood (ML-BS), maximum parsimony (MP-BT), and Bayesian posterior probabilities (BPP) greater than or equal to 75% (ML-BS and MP-BS) and 0.95 (BPP) were considered significantly supported.

3. Results

3.1. Molecular Phylogeny

The ITS+28S dataset included sequences from 63 fungal specimens representing 56 taxa. The dataset had an aligned length of 2112 characters, of which 1216 characters are constant, 256 are variable and parsimony-uninformative, and 640 are parsimony-informative. Maximum parsimony analysis yielded 12 equally parsimonious trees (TL = 4377, CI = 0.337, HI = 0.664, RI = 0.525, RC = 0.177). The best model for the ITS+28S dataset estimated and applied in the Bayesian analysis is general time reversible (GTR)+I+G, lset nst = 6, rates = invgamma; prset statefreqpr = dirichlet (1,1,1,1). Bayesian analysis and ML analysis resulted in a similar topology to the MP analysis, with an average standard deviation of split frequencies = 0.005569 (BI).
The phylogeny (Figure 1) inferred from ITS+28S sequences resolves seven major clades for 56 species of the Polyporales. Collections of Perenniporia subacida formed a lineage distinct from the Perenniporia s.s. lineage, within the core polyporoid clade. The P. subacida lineage is closely related to the Yuchengia lineage based on Y. narymica (Pilát) (B.K. Cui, C.L. Zhao, and Steffen) with good support (100% BS, 100% BP, 1.00 BPP).
The four gene (ITS+28S+mtSSU+Tef1) sequence dataset did not show any conflicts in tree topology for the reciprocal bootstrap trees, which allowed us to combine them. The combined dataset included sequences from 61 specimens representing 29 species. The dataset had an aligned length of 3515 characters, of which 2489 characters are constant, 219 are variable and parsimony-uninformative, and 807 are parsimony-informative. Maximum parsimony analysis yielded 10 equally parsimonious trees (TL = 3075, CI = 0.498, HI = 0.502, RI = 0.747, RC = 0.372). Best model for the combined ITS+28S+mtSSU+Tef1 estimated and applied in the Bayesian analysis: general time reversible (GTR)+I+G, lset nst = 6, rates = invgamma; prset statefreqpr = dirichlet (1,1,1,1). Bayesian analysis and ML analyses resulted in a topology similar to the MP analysis, with an average standard deviation of split frequencies = 0.003420.
A further phylogeny (Figure 2) inferred from the combined ITS+28S+mtSSU+Tef1 sequences was obtained for ten genera in Perenniporia s.l. and demonstrated that this taxon formed a clade together with Y. narymica, with strong support (100% BS, 100% BP, 1.00 BPP). The clade is distinct from P. medulla-panis (Jacq.) We, along with Donk, conclude that it belongs to a distinct, new genus, hereafter called Poriella.

4. Discussion

The taxonomic position of this taxon has been long debated [16,17,18,19,20]. It was transferred to Perenniporia by Donk [20], and this placement has been generally accepted [8,9,10,11,12]. Due to a combination of characteristics (completely unbranched skeletal hyphae and ellipsoid and non-truncate basidiospores), Decock and Staplers [13] mentioned that the species did not belong to Perenniporia. Based on phylogenetic and morphological grounds, Robledo et al. confirmed that this taxon should be separated from Perenniporia, and could be recognized as a distinct genus morphologically as well [28]. Previous studies also confirmed that this species formed a clade distinct from the P. medulla-panis clade [5,6,28]. The present study confirms these results from previous studies and formally describes the new genus, Poriella with P. subacida as type species.
Other species of Perenniporia and Poriella subacida share the morphological features of unbranched skeletal hyphae and non-truncate basidiospores, such as Perenniporia africana (Ipulet and Ryvarden) in Uganda [50,51], P. contraria (Berk. and M.A. Curtis) Ryvarden in Cuba, and P. ellipsospora (Ryvarden and Gilb.) in North America [10]. A comparison of Poriella and related genera is presented in Table 2.
Three species have been mentioned as possible synonyms of this highly variable species. Poria colorea Overh. & Englerth, described from Western Tsuga Carr. and has generally been considered to be conspecific with Polyporus subacidus. Poria fuscomarginata Berk. ex Cooke was commented on by Murrill [52] who found the type material to be badly preserved and scanty. He concluded that “it was suggested little.” Poria subaurantia Berk. ex Cooke was considered a synonym of Polyporus subacidus by Murrill [53]. Judging by their descriptions, these fungi show a range of variation that is acceptable for P. subacidus.
Our molecular phylogenetic analyses revealed that the genus Poriella is closely related to Yuchengia narymica and then grouped with Vanderbylia based on the ITS+28S gene regions and the combined ITS+28S+mtSSU+Tef1 sequences (Figure 1 and Figure 2). Morphologically, two species share the same hyphal system and basidiospores. However, Y. narymica differs markedly from the acyanophilous, amyloid skeletal hyphae [38,53,54,55]. Vanderbylia mainly differs in its pileate basidiomata, a dimitic hyphal system with distinctly arboriform vegetative hyphae in the hymenophoral trama and obovoid basidiospores [10,56].
Poriella subacida is primarily a boreal taxon and is widely distributed in forest regions of northern Asia, North America and Europe [8,10,11]. It mainly grows on conifers, especially Picea Dietr., but also on Larix and Pinus Linn. In Europe, it has also been found occasionally on hardwoods like Populus L. and Prunus L. [8], and other hardwoods in North America and Asia [10,11]. The species is also present in tropical areas (e.g., in Africa) [57], but these records should be treated with caution. Ipulet and Ryvarden [50] recently described Perenniporia africana Ipulet and Ryvarden, from Uganda, with seemingly the same combination of characteristicss, i.e., unbranched skeletal hyphae and non-truncate basidiospores [57,58]. A list of characteristics of Poriella subacida comb. nov. from different regions is presented in Table 3.
Poriella subacida causes white rot of conifers and hardwoods and also butt and root rots of living conifers. Due to the cream to golden yellow mycelia felts that develop in the decayed wood, this rot is commonly called “feather rot” [10].
