Identification and nomenclature of the genus Penicillium
Phylogeny of Penicillium and the segregation of Trichocomaceae into three families
The relationship of Penicillium to other genera of Trichocomaceae is investigated and a new classification system including both anamorph and teleomorph species is proposed and these 25 clades are treated here as sections.
Phylogeny, identification and nomenclature of the genus Aspergillus
Large-scale generation and analysis of filamentous fungal DNA barcodes boosts coverage for kingdom fungi and reveals thresholds for fungal species and higher taxon delimitation
Prospects for fungus identification using CO1 DNA barcodes, with Penicillium as a test case
Analysis of patterns of sequence divergences in this gene region for 38 fungal taxa with full CO1 sequences suggested that CO1 could be effective in species recognition, and designed primers for a 545-bp fragment of CO1 and generated sequences for multiple strains from 58 species of Penicillium subgenus Penicilla and 12 allied species.
Phylogeny and nomenclature of the genus Talaromyces and taxa accommodated in Penicillium subgenus Biverticillium
All evidence supports the conclusions that Penicillium subgenus Biverticillium is distinct from other subgenera in Penicillsium and should be taxonomically unified with the Talaromyces species that reside in the same clade.
Polyphasic taxonomy of the genus Talaromyces
Purpureocillium, a new genus for the medically important Paecilomyces lilacinus.
Comparing clinical isolates with strains isolated from soil, insects and nematodes using 18S rRNA gene, internal transcribed spacer (ITS) and partial translation elongation factor 1-α sequences shows that P. lilacinus is not related to Paecilomyces, and the ITS and TEF sequences of the Purpureocillium lilacinum isolates used for biocontrol of nematode pests are identical to those causing infections in humans.
New ochratoxin A producing species of Aspergillus section Circumdati
Aspergillus section Circumdati contains species with yellow to ochre conidia and non-black sclerotia that produce at least one of the following extrolites: ochratoxins, penicillic acids, xanthomegnins or melleins, and 20 species can be distinguished, that are phylogenetically and phenotypically strongly related.
