Associate professor Le Xuan Tham, a researcher specialising in fungi, told Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper on Wednesday that his research group had identified the new species as the second Shiitake species in Viet Nam and the eighth Shiitake species globally.

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

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