Fruit bodies (YT988134) were analyzed from soil collected under dead Larix cajanderi in a Siberian boreal forest site following a fire before one year. The fungal species, Rhizina undulata, was identified from morphological examination of the fruit bodies and DNA sequence comparisons. Further phylogenic analysis of the isolate showed clustering with fungi from Korea and Japan, classifying it as an Asian species. Rhizina undulata, the causative agent of Rhizina root rot, is considered an important soil pathogen in surviving adult trees, as well as in regenerated seedlings of L. cajanderi and Pinus sylvestris, after fires in Siberian taiga forests.
