Chlorinated anisyl metabolites (CAM) were detected in ethyl acetate extracts from the culture medium of species of seven basidiomycete genera including, for the first time, Mycena, Peniophora, Phellinus and Phylloporia. Extension of CAM biosynthesis in Bjerkandera (B. fumosa), Hypholoma (H. elongatum) and Pholiota (P. adiposa) is a new finding. The selective and high-yield production of 3,5-dichloro-p-anisyl alcohol by H. elongatum is remarkable.
