Abstract

Ganoderma lucidum has a long history for traditional medicine in Asian countries. However, taxonomy of Ganoderma species remains controversial, since it was initially classified on the basis of morphological characteristics. Recently, Ganoderma sichuanense and Ganoderma lingzhi was proposed as a re–proposed name for Ganoderma lucidum in China. Likewise, all strains of the Korean ‘G. lucidum’ were clustered into one group together with G. sichuanense and G. lingzhi from China, when a phylogenetic analysis was undertaken based on the ITS rRNA gene sequences of the Ganoderma species. However, Europe and North American strains which are regarded as true G. lucidum were positioned in clearly different group. Based on these results, re–consideration of naming Korean cultivated Yeongji ‘G. lucidum’ should be needed.
