The Colletotrichum acutatum species complex
TLDR
Multilocus molecular phylogenetic analysis of 331 strains previously identified as C. acutatum and other related taxa, including strains from numerous hosts with wide geographic distributions, confirmed the molecular groups previously recognised and identified a series of novel taxa.
Colletotrichum species with curved conidia from herbaceous hosts
TLDR
A multilocus molecular phylogenetic analysis of 97 isolates of C. Dematium and other Colletotrichum species with curved conidia from herbaceous hosts resulted in 20 clades, with 12 clades containing strains that had previously been identified as C. dematium.
Highlights of the Didymellaceae: A polyphasic approach to characterise Phoma and related pleosporalean genera
TLDR
The phylogenetic analysis revealed that the current Boeremaean subdivision is incorrect from an evolutionary point of view, revealing the genus Phoma to be highly polyphyletic.
The Colletotrichum boninense species complex
TLDR
Seven of the new species are only known from New Zealand, perhaps reflecting a sampling bias, and the new combination C. phyllanthi was made, and C. dracaenae Petch was epitypified and the name replaced with C. petchii.
A class-wide phylogenetic assessment of Dothideomycetes
TLDR
A genomic comparison of 6 dothideomycete genomes with other fungi finds a high level of unique protein associated with the class, supporting its delineation as a separate taxon.
Multi-locus phylogeny of Pleosporales: a taxonomic, ecological and evolutionary re-evaluation
TLDR
Both ecological and morphological characters show varying degrees of phylogenetic significance in Pleosporalean taxa.
Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus in Meat Products, the Netherlands
TLDR
A new methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus clone related to pig and cattle farming was detected in the Netherlands and two strains were MRSA; 1 was multilocus sequence type 398, theclone related to farming.
DNA phylogeny reveals polyphyly of Phoma section Peyronellaea and multiple taxonomic novelties
TLDR
Based on the multigene analyses, five new Phoma species could be delineated while a further five required taxonomic revision to be consistent with the genetic variation observed.
Naming and outline of Dothideomycetes–2014 including proposals for the protection or suppression of generic names
TLDR
This paper lists all genera currently accepted by us in Dothideomycetes, including pleomorphic and non-pleomorphic genera, and proposes single generic names for future usage, following the rulings of the current ICN.
