Góes-Neto, Aristóteles, Marcos Fábio de Oliveira Marques, Jorge Dias Andrade & Daniela Silva Santos. Lignicolous aphyllophoroid Basidiomycota in an Atlantic Forest fragment in the semi-arid Caatinga region of Brazil. Mycotaxon 88: 359 - 364. 2003.

ABSTRACT: In this study of diversity of lignicolous aphyllophoroid Basidiomycota in an Atlantic Forest fragment in the semi-arid Caatinga region of the State of Bahia, Brazil, a total of 26 species were collected. Most of the taxa are pantropical, white-rot species, belonging to the polyporoid clade. Pycnoporus sanguineus, Phellinus gilvus and Lentinus crinitus were the most frequently collected taxa, both in number of specimens and in occurrence along the sampling period. Although surrounded by the semi-arid Caatinga vegetation and presumably isolated from the conventional Atlantic Forest region, the mycota of the submontane fragment seems to have no marked differences from the mycota of other fragments situated in the traditional domain of Atlantic Forest in lower altitudes.

KEYWORDS: tropical rain forest, steppic-savannah, basidiomycetes
