"Thailand is considered as one of the areas containing a high percentage of unknown taxa of Xylariaceae (Rogers 2000). In Thailand, several studies on endophytic fungi have been documented, namely, from several bamboos (Luyong et al. 2000), banana (Musa acuminata) (Photita et al. 2001), monkeypod/rain tree (Samanea saman) (Chareprasert et al. 2006), and several xylariaceous endophytes were also reported from those plants."

Review quoted from Izumi okane, Prasert Srikitikulchai, Kyoko Toyama, Thomas Laessoe etc. Full Paper; Study of endophytic Xylariaceae in Thailand: diversity and taxonomy inferred from rDNA sequence analyses with saprobes forming fruit bodies in the field.

Have any of you known the similar cases (the high percentage of Xylariaceae) in the USA, France, or UK, proved by reference(s)?

Are you looking for areas that high a high percentage of Xylariaceae as compared with total fungi species richness? Or for areas that have a high percentage of unknown taxa of Xylariaceae compared with total Xylariaceae taxa? – Oreotrephes Aug 6 '13 at 1:49
@Oreotrephes: The high percentage of Xylariaceae in the USA, France, or UK, proved by reference(s), thanks. – rusticmystic Aug 12 '13 at 10:52
