Polyphasic taxonomy of Aspergillus fumigatus and related species.
The variability within Aspergillus fumigatus Fresenius and related species was examined using macro-, micro-morphology, growth temperature regimes and extrolite patterns. In addition, DNA analysesExpand
A re-consideration of Pseudoperonospora cubensis and P. humuli based on molecular and morphological data.
The phylogenetic analyses of P. cubensis and P. humuli showed that they share a high level of sequence homology; the morphology of the sporangiophores, sporangia, and dehiscence apparatus confirmed the similarity of the two species, and they are reduced to the status of a taxonomic synonym. Expand
Phylogenetic reassessment of Hyaloscyphaceae sensu lato (Helotiales, Leotiomycetes) based on multigene analyses.
This study performed molecular phylogenetic analyses using multiple genes to evaluate the phylogenetic utility of morphological characters traditionally used in the taxonomy of Hyaloscyphaceae through reassessment of the monophyly of this family and its genera. Expand
Novel Neosartorya species isolated from soil in Korea.
Two separate groups are distinguished and are proposed as novel species of Neosartorya spinosa and related taxa based on partial beta-tubulin and calmodulin gene sequences and ascospore morphology. Expand
Marasmioid and gymnopoid fungi of the Republic of Korea. 6. Marasmius sect. Marasmius
The detailed morphological descriptions with figures for five species of Marasmius and Sicciformes collected in South Korea are provided and their taxonomic position was confirmed by the phylogeny based on the internal transcribed spacer and nuclear large ribosomal subunit rRNA genes. Expand
Genetic variability and mycohost association of Ampelomyces quisqualis isolates inferred from phylogenetic analyses of ITS rDNA and actin gene sequences.
It is demonstrated that Ampelomyces hyperparasite is indeed an assemblage of several distinct lineages rather than a sole species, and the isolates show not only some degree of host specialization but also adaptation to their mycohosts during the evolution of the hyperParasite. Expand
New taxa of Neosartorya and Aspergillus in Aspergillus section Fumigati
Three new species of Neosartorya and one new Aspergillus of section Fumigati are proposed using a polyphasic approach based on morphology, extrolite production and partial β-tubulin, calmodulin, andExpand
Re-consideration of Peronospora farinosa infecting Spinacia oleracea as distinct species, Peronospora effusa.
The ITS rDNA sequence and morphological data demonstrated that P. farinosa from S. oleracea is distinct from downy mildew of other chenopodiaceous hosts, and the name Peronospora effusa should be reinstated for the downy Mildew fungus found on spinach. Expand
Morphological and molecular discrimination among Albugo Candida materials infecting Capsella bursa-pastoris world-wide
The surface ornamentation of oospores of Korean specimens was morphologically distinguished from previously known characteristics of A. candida and the molecular data indicated strong support for a species partition separating Korean and other continental specimens. Expand
