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,

This study suggests that in a hospital environment with 24-h, central air conditioning, DG18 plates appear to be more effective in collecting more fungal colonies in terms of both quantity and types of genera.
Phylogenetic systematics of Syncephalis (Zoopagales, Zoopagomycotina), a genus of ubiquitous mycoparasites
It is determined that most Syncephalis species have long ITS sequences relative to other fungi, and the ITS sequences of Syncepahlis are nonetheless rarely recovered in environmental molecular diversity surveys.

Five new species of the obligate mycoparasite Syncephalis (Zoopagales, Zoopagomycotina) from soil
Five new species of the mycoparasitic zygomycete genus Syncephalis obtained in dual culture are described and internal transcribed spacer (ITS) sequences for all five new species are generated.
Phylogenetic and morphological analyses of the mycoparasitic genus Piptocephalis
This study addresses two aspects: Piptocephalis systematics and analyses of the length and inter- and infraspecific variation of the nuc rDNA internal transcribed spacer (ITS1-5.8S-ITS2 = ITS) region.
A new species of Syncephalis from Taiwan
A new species of Syncephalis from Taiwan, isolated from soil is described and illustrated and distinguished from other species by the asymmetrical placement of the merosporangia on the fertile vesicle and shorter cylindrical spores.
Piptocephalis Formosana, a New Species from Taiwan
Piptocephalis formosana, isolated from forest soil in Taiwan, is described as new and differs in having smaller head cells that are 4-5 lobed, cylindrical merosporangia containing (2-)3(-4) merospores, and smaller merospore surrounded by a water droplet when mature.
