Resolution of morphology-based taxonomic delusions: Acrocordiella, Basiseptospora, Blogiascospora, Clypeosphaeria, Hymenopleella, Lepteutypa, Pseudapiospora, Requienella, Seiridium and Strickeria
Fresh material, type studies and molecular phylogeny were used to clarify phylogenetic relationships of the nine genera Acrocordiella, Blogiascospora, Clypeosphaeria, Hymenopleella, Lepteutypa,Expand
Fungal Planet description sheets: 214–280
Novel species of microfungi described in the present study include the following from South Africa: Cercosporella dolichandrae from Dolichandra unguiscati, Seiridium podocarpi from PodocarpusExpand
Phylogenetic insights resolve Dacampiaceae (Pleosporales) as polyphyletic: Didymocyrtis (Pleosporales, Phaeosphaeriaceae) with Phoma-like anamorphs resurrected and segregated from Polycoccum
A phylogenetic analysis of nuLSU and ITS sequences representing genera previously included in Dacampiaceae indicates that the family is strongly polyphyletic and that the type species of Dacampia isExpand
Fungal systematics and evolution: FUSE 1
Fungal Systematics and Evolution (FUSE) is introduced as a new series to expedite the publication of issues relating to the epitypification of formerly described species, report new sexual-asexualExpand
Barrmaelia and Entosordaria in Barrmaeliaceae (fam. nov., Xylariales) and critical notes on Anthostomella-like genera based on multigene phylogenies
Phylogenetic analyses of a combined DNA data matrix containing ITS, LSU, rpb2 and tub2 sequences of representative Xylariales revealed that the genus Barrmaelia is a well-defined monophylum, as based on four of its described species and the new species E. quercina is described. Expand
Asterodiscus and Stigmatodiscus, two new apothecial dothideomycete genera and the new order Stigmatodiscales
During a survey on corticolous Dothideomycetes, several collections with ascospores matching the genera Asterodiscus and Stigmatomassaria were revealed from dead corticated twigs of Acer, Carpinus and Tamarix, and they are described and illustrated, and placed in the new family Stigmatodiscaceae and new order Stigmaodiscales.

Freshwater Ascomycetes: Submersisphaeria aquatica (Annulatascaceae), reported for the first time from France (Morvan) and from Europe
A detailed morphological description of this fungus is provided and the presence of minute germ pores beneath the bipolar appendages of the ascospores is assessed for the first time, in American and European material as well. Expand
Considerations and consequences of allowing DNA sequence data as types of fungal taxa
It is concluded that the acceptance of DNA sequences alone as types of names of taxa, under the terms used in the current proposals, is unnecessary and would not solve the problem of naming putative taxa known only from DNA sequences in a scientifically defensible way. Expand
An overview of the genus Glyphium and its phylogenetic placement in Patellariales
Phylogenies inferred from the analysis of sequences of six gene regions derived from six accessions indicate that Glyphium belongs to Patellariales (Pleosporomycetidae, DothideomyCetes), and support the phylogenetic relationship of Patellaria and Hysteropatella within this order. Expand
Thyronectria abieticola (Hypocreales), a new species from France on Abies alba
A new species of Thyronectria growing on corticated branches and twigs of Abies alba is described from France. It is characterized by morphology of sexual and asexual morphs, by ITS rDNA data and byExpand
