Highlights of the Didymellaceae: A polyphasic approach to characterise Phoma and related pleosporalean genera
TLDR
The phylogenetic analysis revealed that the current Boeremaean subdivision is incorrect from an evolutionary point of view, revealing the genus Phoma to be highly polyphyletic. Expand
Sizing up Septoria
TLDR
The phylogenetic generic limits of Septoria, Stagonospora, and other related genera such as Sphaerulina, Phaeosphaeria and Phaeoseptoria are resolved using sequences of the partial 28S nuclear ribosomal RNA and RPB2 genes of a large set of isolates, leading to the introduction of 14 new genera, 36 new species, and 19 new combinations.

Nonpathogenic Isolates of the Citrus Black Spot Fungus, Guignardia citricarpa, Identified as a Cosmopolitan Endophyte of Woody Plants, G. mangiferae (Phyllosticta capitalensis).
ABSTRACT The population structure of Guignardia citricarpa sensu lato (anamorph: Phyllosticta citricarpa), a fungus of which strains pathogenic to citrus are subject to phytosanitary legislation inExpand
Large-scale generation and analysis of filamentous fungal DNA barcodes boosts coverage for kingdom fungi and reveals thresholds for fungal species and higher taxon delimitation
TLDR
The DNA barcodes used in this study have been deposited to GenBank and will also be publicly available at the Westerdijk Institute's website as reference sequences for fungal identification, marking an unprecedented data release event in global fungal barcoding efforts to date. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of Phoma and allied anamorph genera: towards a reclassification of the Phoma complex.
TLDR
The present study demonstrated that Phoma radicina, the type species of Phoma sect. Expand
DNA phylogeny reveals polyphyly of Phoma section Peyronellaea and multiple taxonomic novelties
TLDR
Based on the multigene analyses, five new Phoma species could be delineated while a further five required taxonomic revision to be consistent with the genetic variation observed. Expand
Phylogenetic lineages in Pseudocercospora
TLDR
Partial nucleotide sequence data for three gene loci, ITS, EF-1α, and ACT suggest that the majority of these species are host specific, indicating that the application of European and American names to Asian taxa, and vice versa, was often not warranted. Expand
Redisposition of phoma-like anamorphs in Pleosporales
TLDR
The anamorphic genus Phoma was subdivided into nine sections based on morphological characters, and included teleomorphs in Didymella, Leptosphaeria, Pleospora and Mycosphaerella, but recent molecular, phylogenetic studies led to the conclusion that Phoma should be restricted to Didymellaceae.

Novel genera and species of coniothyrium-like fungi in Montagnulaceae (Ascomycota)
Based on analyses of concatenated internal transcribed spacer regions of the nrDNA operon (ITS), large subunit rDNA (LSU), γ-actin and β-tubulin gene sequences the taxonomy of coniothyrium-like fungiExpand
