New fossil find pushes age of terrestrial fungi back 60 million years, to the same era when green plants pulled themselves onto land

... Glomales about 600 to 620 million years ago. This fits well with a recent phylogenetic study of fungi by M. L. Berbee and John Taylor, UC Berkeley professor of plant and microbial biology and a curator at the University Herbarium. They compared ribosomal RNA from many species of fungi and calibrated them...
