Paul did want to issue one correction: Folks, On this broadcast, I made a misstatement. Although the divergence of basidiomycota is estimated to be as far back at 1.2 billion years ago, the fossil, Gondwanagaricities magnificus is estimated to be more than 100 million years old. “Molecular clock estimates suggest the divergence of the Basidiomycota around 500 Ma to 1.2 billion years [26] and G. magnificus establishes the earliest calibration point so far for the Agaricales, with a new minimum age of 113–120 Ma.” Source: http://journals.plos.org/plosone/arti…
