Description: The brown-rot fungus, Fibroporia radiculosa, has been included in numerous research studies because many isolates of this fungus demonstrate an unusually high tolerance to copper. This fungus has undergone several recognized changes in taxonomic nomenclature, and through DNA technology, scientists have correctly identified isolates that had been misidentified microscopically. Fibroporia radiculosa is not uncommon. In fact, the isolation and prevalence of Fibroporia radiculosa has been documented by mycologists since the 1930s, but the mechanism of copper tolerance remains a mystery. Here, we look at the history of research involving Fibroporia radiculosa and trace the changes in taxonomic nomenclature.

Keywords: Brown rot, fungi, classification, decay fungi, taxonomic status, classification, identification, copper, Fibroporia radiculosa, Antrodia radiculosa, TFFH 294, taxonomic nomenclature
