A higher-level phylogenetic classification of the Fungi.
Families of Dothideomycetes
Dothideomycetes comprise a highly diverse range of fungi characterized mainly by asci with two wall layers (bitunicate asci) and often with fissitunicate dehiscence, and it is hoped that by illustrating types they provide stimulation and interest so that more work is carried out in this remarkable group of fungi.
An overview of the systematics of the Sordariomycetes based on a four-gene phylogeny.
The phylogenetic relationship among 106 taxa from 12 orders out of 16 in the Sordariomycetes was investigated based on four nuclear loci, and most of the orders are recognized as monophyletic groups.
Fungal Identification Using Molecular Tools: A Primer for the Natural Products Research Community
This review discusses problems of using morphology alone in the identification of fungi to the species level, the three nuclear ribosomal genes most commonly used in fungal identification, and the potential advantages and limitations of the ITS region.
A class-wide phylogenetic assessment of Dothideomycetes
A genomic comparison of 6 dothideomycete genomes with other fungi finds a high level of unique protein associated with the class, supporting its delineation as a separate taxon.
Molecular systematics of the Sordariales: the order and the family Lasiosphaeriaceae redefined
Two new orders, Coniochaetales and Chaetosphaeriales, are recognized and the Boliniaceae is accepted in the Boliniales, and the Nitschkiaceae is acceptance in the Coronophorales.
A molecular phylogenetic reappraisal of the Hysteriaceae, Mytilinidiaceae and Gloniaceae (Pleosporomycetidae, Dothideomycetes) with keys to world species
A reappraisal of the phylogenetic integrity of bitunicate ascomycete fungi belonging to or previously affiliated with the Hysteriaceae, Mytilinidiaceae, Gloniaceae and Patellariaceae is presented,…
A five-gene phylogeny of Pezizomycotina.
Pezizomycotina is the largest subphylum of Ascomycota and includes the vast majority of filamentous, ascoma-producing species, and the seven remaining classes formed a monophyletic group that corresponds to Leotiomyceta.
Naming and outline of Dothideomycetes–2014 including proposals for the protection or suppression of generic names
This paper lists all genera currently accepted by us in Dothideomycetes, including pleomorphic and non-pleomorphic genera, and proposes single generic names for future usage, following the rulings of the current ICN.
