Molecular phylogeny of Hypoxylon and closely related genera.
Phylogenetic relationships were inferred among several xylariaceous genera with Nodulisporium or nodulisporium-like anamorphs based on the analyses of beta-tubulin and alpha-actin sequences. OneExpand
Phylogenetic status of Xylaria subgenus Pseudoxylaria among taxa of the subfamily Xylarioideae (Xylariaceae) and phylogeny of the taxa involved in the subfamily.
Xylaria appears to be a paraphyletic genus, with most of the 11 genera submerged within it, and apparently diverged from Xylaria and the other genera early. Expand
The genus Theissenia: T. pyrenocrata, T. cinerea sp. nov., and T. eurima sp. nov
The diagnosis of Theissenia is emended to include taxa that lack a definite central perithecial columella andTaxa that feature ascospores with a germ slit are emended and a new species is described. Expand
Theissenia rogersii sp. nov. and phylogenetic position of Theissenia.
Phylogenetic analyses based on DNA sequences of beta-tubulin and alpha-actin genes placed Theissenia in the subfamily Hypoxyloideae among the genera that are characterized by having bipartite stromata (i.e. with theStromata differentiated into an outer dehiscing layer and an inner perithecium-bearing layer).

Molecular characterization of dermatophytes of the Trichophyton mentagrophytes complex found in Taiwan with emphasis on their correlation with clinical observations
Fungi of the Trichophyton mentagrophytes complex are important pathogenic dermatophytes capable of causing various human skin infections and communicating epidemiological statistics is greatly impeded because taxonomic schemes adopted by different research groups are inconsistent and hardly comparable. Expand
Amphirosellinia gen. nov. and a new species of Entoleuca.
The new genus Amphirosellinia is erected to include five xylariaceous fungi with erumpent or immersed perithecioid stromata and Entoleuca ellisii also is described as new, which readily can be separated from the known species in the genus by its smaller ascospore size range and short ascospores germ slit.

Ophiodiaporthe cyatheae gen. et sp. nov., a diaporthalean pathogen causing a devastating wilt disease of Cyathea lepifera in Taiwan
Through pathogenicity tests, O. cyatheae was demonstrated to be the causal agent of the C. lepifera wilt disease and Phylogenetic analyses based on combined sequences of nSSU-rDNA, nLSU- rDNA, EF1-α-1 and RPB2 placed O.Cyatheae in Diaporthaceae, indicating that O. Cyatheae had its origin within Diaporthe. Expand
Xylaria species associated with fallen fruits and seeds
Twenty-five fructicolous and seminicolous species of Xylaria are classified into three groups by stromatal morphology: the X. ianthinovelutina group, resembling X. euphorbiicola but differing from it mainly by having conspicuous perithecial mounds and growing on fallen fruits of a different host plant. Expand
Obolarina persica sp. nov., associated with dying Quercus in Iran
A new species is described from Iran widely associated with dying Quercus brantii, on which it produces charcoal-like stromata and differs from the other described species, Ob . Expand
Xylaria species associated with nests of Odontotermes formosanus in Taiwan.
Nine species of Xylaria were collected in Taiwan from nests of Odontotermes formosanus, the only known macrotermitine termite in Taiwan and anamorphs for eight of them are described, including six newly described species and three previously known species. Expand
