The Botryosphaeriaceae: genera and species known from culture
It seems likely that all of the older taxa linked to the Botryosphaeriaceae, and for which cultures or DNA sequence data are not available, cannot belinked to the species in this family that are known from culture, and will have to be disregarded for future use unless they are epitypified.
Two new species of Botryosphaeria with brown, 1-septate ascospores and Dothiorella anamorphs.
Ph phylogenetically and morphologically the anamorphs of these two species belong in a genus distinct from any of the currently accepted anamorph genera assigned to Botryosphaeria, which is shown to be the teleomorph of Diplodia sarmentorum, which in turn is transferred to Dothiorella.
Phylogenetic lineages in the Botryosphaeriales: a systematic and evolutionary framework
Molecular clock dating on radiations within the Botryosphaeriales suggests that the order originated in the Cretaceous period around 103 (45-188) mya, with most of the diversification in the Tertiary period.
Botryosphaeria corticola, sp. nov. on Quercus species, with notes and description of Botryosphaeria stevensii and its anamorph, Diplodia mutila.
It was concluded that the isolates from oak differed from B. stevensii in having larger ascospores and conidia as well as different spore shapes and represented an as yet undescribed species, which is described here as B. corticola.
Resolving the phylogenetic and taxonomic status of dark-spored teleomorph genera in the Botryosphaeriaceae
A multi-gene approach was used to resolve the correct phylogenetic position of the dark-spored ‘Botryosphaeria’ teleomorphs and related asexual species and Dothidotthiaceae is introduced to accommodate it.

Data indicate that B. parva is associated with many of the symptoms normally linked with infection by other fungi in the grapevine decline syndrome, and descriptions of the species associated with grapevines and an identification key are provided.
Phylogeny and morphology of four new species of Lasiodiplodia from Iran

Four new species of Lasiodiplodia are described and illustrated from various tree species in Iran to investigate their phylogenetic relationships with other closely related species and genera.
Primers for mating-type diagnosis in Diaporthe and Phomopsis: their use in teleomorph induction in vitro and biological species definition.
Plectosphaerella species associated with root and collar rots of horticultural crops in southern Italy
An intensive sampling of diseased cucurbits as well as tomato and bell pepper was done and the fungal pathogens present on them were isolated and six species were distinguished, one of which is already known.
Botryosphaeria dothidea and Other Fungi Associated with Excoriose and Dieback of Grapevines in Portugal
- A. Phillips
- 1 August 1998
In a study of fungi associated with symptoms of excoriose in Portugal, the most prevalent ones were found to be Botryosphaeria dothidea and Phomopsis viticola and these two fungi infected grapevines causing dark lesions on the shoots and bud mortality in artificial inoculations.
