BASEIA, Iuri Goulart  and  MILANEZ, Adauto Ivo. First record of Scleroderma polyrhizum Pers. (Gasteromycetes) from Brazil. Acta Bot. Bras. [online]. 2000, vol.14, n.2, pp.181-184. ISSN 0102-3306.

The ectomycorrhizal, gasteroid fungus, Scleroderma polyrhizum is recorded from Brazil for the first time, growing under Caryocar brasiliense Camb. (Caryocaraceae) a widespread native tree of the Brazilian "cerrado" vegetation. Macro and microscopic features were described using basidiocarps from fresh and dried material treated according to the traditional methodology for Gasteromycetes. The characteristics of the material were close to those of the original description given by Persoon. All material collected was associated with roots of C brasiliense.

Keywords : Gasteromycetes; Scleroderma polyrhizum; taxonomy; ectomycorrhiza.
