HCM CITY— A new species of Shiitake mushroom called Lentinula platinedodes has been found in Cát Tiên National Park in Đồng Nai and Lâm Đồng provinces.

Associate professor Lê Xuân Thám, a researcher specialising in fungi, told Tuổi Trẻ (Youth) newspaper on Wednesday that his research group had identified the new species as the second Shiitake species in Việt Nam and the eighth Shiitake species globally.

Before the new species was found, Lentinula edodes was identified as a Shiitake species native to Việt Nam, according to Thám.

The research group worked with experts from the University of Toronto to analyse the spores of the Shiitake mushrooms at the Đà Lạt Nuclear Research Institute before their findings were published in international science magazines. — VNS
