摘要Lingzhi with a characteristic red laccate cap was collected from different locations in Hong Kong during 1997-1999 to assess its biodiversity. Pure cultures were obtained from the collected material, authenticated with DNA probes, and used for artificial cultivation using sawdust compost. It has been claimed that Hong Kong harbored 11 lingzhi species belonging to the Ganoderma lucidum complex (Chang & Mao 1995; Mao 1998). Combining the field observations with experience of the isolates in cultivation makes it clear that this fungus shows considerable developmental plasticity. It is evident from this study that developmental polymorphism has been responsible for misidentification of collection in the past and consequential proliferation of species names in the taxonomic literature (Zhao 1989; Moncalvo & Ryvarden 1997). An integrated approach using conventional somatic incompatibility tests, morphological study, molecular tools, study of fruit body development as well as ecological and distribution data is essential to characterize Lingzhi properly. Combining study of the ontogenetic pathway with assessment of developmental plasticity also provokes new thoughts on the structure and function of a basidiomycetous fruit body.
