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.
The Genera of Fungi - fixing the application of the type species of generic names – G 2: Allantophomopsis, Latorua, Macrodiplodiopsis, Macrohilum, Milospium, Protostegia, Pyricularia, Robillarda,…
This paper focuses on 12 genera of microfungi, 11 of which the type species are neo- or epitypified here: Latorua gen. nov, and three new families: Macrodiplodiopsisceae, Macrohilaceae, and Robillardaceae.
Phylogenetic lineages in the Capnodiales
It is concluded that the strictly plant pathogenic, nectrotrophic families evolved from saprobic ancestors (Capnodiaceae), which is the more primitive state.
