You could try Rytas Vilgalys' website.
It has all of the rDNA primers, subdivided into groups 28S, ITS, 18S. For 28S,
it says that most molecular systematics studies only utilize the first 600-900
bases from the LSU gene ....  We covered part of this using ITS1F and LR3.
Vilgalys describes how they amplify this region and what primers they use for
