Fungal diversity notes 111–252—taxonomic and phylogenetic contributions to fungal taxa
This paper is a compilation of notes on 142 fungal taxa, including five new families, 20 new genera, and 100 new species, representing a wide taxonomic and geographic range. The new families,
Families of Dothideomycetes
TLDR
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.
The genus Phomopsis: biology, applications, species concepts and names of common phytopathogens
TLDR
An overview of the current status of the taxonomy in Phomopsis with special reference to biology, applications of various species, species concepts, future research perspectives and names of common pathogens is provided.
Colletotrichum gloeosporioides is not a common pathogen on tropical fruits
TLDR
Contrary to previous understanding, none of the 25 Colletotrichum isolates from tropical fruits was C. gloeosporioides, which will have significant impacts on many aspects of plant pathology, pathogen diagnosis, quarantine decisions, plant breeding, and plant disease management and control.
Fungal diversity notes 1–110: taxonomic and phylogenetic contributions to fungal species
This paper is a compilation of notes on 110 fungal taxa, including one new family, 10 new genera, and 76 new species, representing a wide taxonomic and geographic range. The new family,
A Phylogenetic Evaluation of Whether Endophytes Become Saprotrophs at Host Senescence
TLDR
Evidence is provided to suggest that some endophytic species change their ecological strategies and adopt a saprotrophic lifestyle upon host decay, and molecular data suggest there are fungal taxa that possibly exist as endophytes and saprotrophs.
Towards a natural classification and backbone tree for Sordariomycetes
TLDR
An updated outline of the Sordariomycetes and a backbone tree incorporating asexual and sexual genera in the class are provided and new links between sexual and asexual genera and thus synonymies are provided.
Fungal diversity notes 367–490: taxonomic and phylogenetic contributions to fungal taxa
TLDR
Eight new genera, 101 new species, two new combinations, one neotype, four reference specimens, new host or distribution records for eight species and one alternative morphs are introduced in this paper.
Naming and outline of Dothideomycetes–2014 including proposals for the protection or suppression of generic names
TLDR
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.
Fungal diversity notes 491–602: taxonomic and phylogenetic contributions to fungal taxa
TLDR
This is a continuity of a series of taxonomic and phylogenetic papers on the fungi where materials were collected from many countries, examined and described and DNA sequence data is analysed from concatenated datasets to infer phylogenetic relationships and substantiate systematic positions of taxa within appropriate ranks.
