Evolution & Morphology in the Homobasidiomycetes

The Clade/Morphology Chart

The row across the top of the table lists the eight major clades of the Homobasidiomycetes. The column down the left lists the seven major morphological stature types of the Homobasidiomycetes. Example genera are given, when known, in each clade for each stature type. Some genera have more than one morphological form. For example, Sistotrema can be crust-like, toothed, or pored.
