Phylogenetic and morphotaxonomic revision of Ramichloridium and allied genera
TLDR
The phylogeny of the genera Periconiella, Ramichloridium, Rhinocladiella and Veronaea was explored by means of partial sequences of the 28S (LSU) rRNA gene and the ITS region and a new genus, Radulidium, is erected.
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.
Species concepts in Cercospora: spotting the weeds among the roses
TLDR
No single locus was found to be the ideal DNA barcode gene for the genus, and species identification needs to be based on a combination of gene loci and morphological characters.
Species and ecological diversity within the Cladosporium cladosporioides complex (Davidiellaceae, Capnodiales)
TLDR
The most important phenotypic characters for distinguishing species within the C. cladosporioides complex, which represents a monophyletic subclade within the genus, are shape, width, length, septation and surface ornamentation of conidia and conidiophores; length and branching patterns of conidial chains and hyphal shape and arrangement.
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.
Phylogeny and taxonomy of obscure genera of microfungi
TLDR
Several families are shown to be polyphyletic within some orders, especially in the Capnodiales, Chaetothyriales and Pleosporales.
Fungal Planet description sheets: 400–468
TLDR
Novel species of fungi described in the present study include the following from Australia: Vermiculariopsiella eucalypti, Mulderomyces natalis, Fusicladium paraamoenum, Neotrimmatostroma paraexcentricum, and Pseudophloeospora eUCalyptorum.
Opportunistic, human-pathogenic species in the Herpotrichiellaceae are phenotypically similar to saprobic or phytopathogenic species in the Venturiaceae
Although morphologically similar, species of Cladophialophora (Herpotrichiellaceae) were shown to be phylogenetically distinct from Pseudocladosporium (Venturiaceae), which was revealed to be
A new approach to species delimitation in Septoria
TLDR
This study is the first study to provide DNA-based evidence that multiple family-associations occur for a single species in Septoria, and concludes that trans-family host jumping is a major force driving the evolution of Septoria and Sphaerulina.
A new species of Albugo parasitic to Arabidopsis thaliana reveals new evolutionary patterns in white blister rusts (Albuginaceae)
TLDR
The comparative investigation of the effector genes and host targets in the generalist and the specialist species may constitute a model system for elucidating the fundamental processes involved in plant pathogen co-adaptation and speciation.
