Fungal diversity notes 253–366: taxonomic and phylogenetic contributions to fungal taxa
In the Ascomycota the new genera Angustospora (Testudinaceae), Camporesia (Xylariaceae), Clematidis, Crassiparies, and Parameliola (Pleosporales genera incertae sedis) are introduced. Expand
Resurrection and emendation of the Hypoxylaceae, recognised from a multigene phylogeny of the Xylariales
A comprehensive phylogenetic analysis revealed a clear-cut segregation of the Xylariaceae into several major clades, which was well in accordance with previously established morphological and chemotaxonomic concepts. Expand
The Xylariaceae as model example for a unified nomenclature following the “One Fungus-One Name” (1F1N) concept
Based on the Xylariaceae, a hyperdiverse family of Ascomycota with over 1300 species, the advantages and pitfalls of these nomenclatural changes and their consequences for taxonomy and applied mycology are discussed. Expand
New Hypoxylon species from Martinique and new evidence on the molecular phylogeny of Hypoxylon based on ITS rDNA and β-tubulin data
It is concluded that the right gene (or multi-gene genealogies) to reflect the phylogeny and evolution of Hypoxylon still remains to be found, and it is recommended that the application of polyphasic taxonomic concepts should be continued in taxonomic studies ofHypoxylon. Expand
Lenormandins A—G, new azaphilones from Hypoxylon lenormandii and Hypoxylon jaklitschii sp. nov., recognised by chemotaxonomic data
The status of the new species was established by using molecular phylogenetic data based on ITS and partial beta-tubulin sequences, and by detailed morphological studies, revealing that this group of pigments is specific for Hypoxylon lenormandii from various geographic regions and otherwise only occurs in closely related taxa.

New species and reports of Hypoxylon from Argentina recognized by a polyphasic approach
A preliminary account of Hypoxylon species (Xylariaceae) from the hitherto widely unexplored “Yungas” mountain forests of Northwest Argentina is presented. Two new species are described based onExpand
Hymenosetin, a 3-decalinoyltetramic acid antibiotic from cultures of the ash dieback pathogen, Hymenoscyphus pseudoalbidus.
Whether hymenosetin constitutes a defence metabolite that is produced by the pathogenic fungus to combat other microbes and fungi in the natural environment is shown. Expand
Phylogenetic and chemotaxonomic resolution of the genus Annulohypoxylon (Xylariaceae) including four new species
A phylogenetic β-tubulin tree in conjunction with stromatal HPLC profiles clearly shows that Annulohypoxylon comprises two distinct lineages, and the A. cohaerens/multiforme group might eventually warrant segregation into a new genus as further molecular data become available. Expand
Enfumafungin synthase represents a novel lineage of fungal triterpene cyclases
The preliminary identification of the enfumafungin biosynthetic gene cluster (BGC) is reported based on genome sequencing, phylogenetic reconstruction, gene disruption, and cDNA sequencing studies, suggesting that efuA represents the first member of a widespread lineage of fungal SHCs. Expand
Outline of Fungi and fungus-like taxa
This article provides an outline of the classification of the kingdom Fungi (including fossil fungi), and treats 19 phyla of fungi, including all currently described orders of fungi. Expand
