In this article, we describe the morphological, physiological, and cultural characteristics (growth rate and coefficient, macro- and micromorphological peculiarities, and extracellular laccase activity tests) of vegetative mycelia of wood-decaying medicinal mushrooms Ganoderma lucidum (W.Curt.:Fr.) P. Karst., G. applanatum (Pers.) Pat., Fomes fomentarius (L.) Fr., Laetiporus sulphureus (Bull.:Fr.) P. Karst., Piptoporus betulinus (Bull.) P. Karst., and Daedalea quercina (L.) Pers. and estimated their taxonomic significance. The screening was carried out on different nutrient media: malt-extract agar (MEA), potato-dextrose agar (PDA), and glucose-peptone agar (GPA). Mycelia of white-rot mushrooms (G. lucidum, G. applanatum, and F. fomentarius) preferred MEA medium and revealed strong laccase activity. Laccase tests were negative in brown-rot species (L. sulphureus, P. betulinus, D. quercina) which grew relatively well on PDA medium.
