A multilocus phylogeny of the Metarhizium anisopliae lineage
TLDR
The phylogenetic and in some cases morphological evidence supports the monophyly of nine terminal taxa in the M. anisopliae complex, and it is proposed to recognize at species rank M. guizhouense, M. pingshaense and M. robertsii.
Clarification of generic and species boundaries for Metarhizium and related fungi through multigene phylogenetics
TLDR
A unified concept of sexual and asexual states in Metarhizium is proposed, combining the majority of species recognized in Metacordyceps as well as the green-spored Nomuraea species and those in the more recently described genus Chamaeleomyces.
Metarhizium frigidum sp. nov.: a cryptic species of M. anisopliae and a member of the M. flavoviride complex
TLDR
Based on morphological and molecular evidence it is concluded that ‘‘M. anisopliae var. frigidum’’ is distinct from M. flavoviride and the taxon M. frigIDum sp.
Regiocrella, a new entomopathogenic genus with a pycnidial anamorph and its phylogenetic placement in the Clavicipitaceae.
TLDR
Regiocrella is shown to be closely related to the scale insect pathogen Hypocrella and the plant-associated genera Balansia, Claviceps, Epichlöe, Myriogenospora and Neoclaviceps and to have multiple evolutionary origins within the Clavicipitaceae.
Host jumping onto close relatives and across kingdoms by Tyrannicordyceps (Clavicipitaceae) gen. nov. and Ustilaginoidea_(Clavicipitaceae).
TLDR
The host habitat hypothesis best explains the dynamic evolution of host affiliations seen in Clavicipitaceae and throughout Hypocreales.
Asperisporium and Pantospora (Mycosphaerellaceae): epitypifications and phylogenetic placement
TLDR
An examination of the type species of the anamorphic Asperisporium and Pantospora is presented and DNA sequence data from the ITS region and nLSU were analysed phylogenetically, placed into an evolutionary context within Mycosphaerellaceae, and compared to existing phylogenies.
