A monograph of the entomopathogenic genera Hypocrella, Moelleriella, and Samuelsia gen. nov. (Ascomycota, Hypocreales, Clavicipitaceae), and their aschersonia-like anamorphs in the Neotropics
The present taxonomic revision deals with Neotropical species of three entomopathogenic genera that were once included in Hypocrella s. l.: Hypocrella s. str. (anamorph Aschersonia), Moelleriella…
Regiocrella, a new entomopathogenic genus with a pycnidial anamorph and its phylogenetic placement in the Clavicipitaceae.
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.
Preserving accuracy in GenBank
GenBank, the public repository for nucleotide and protein sequences, is a critical resource for molecular biology, evolutionary biology, and ecology. While some attention has been drawn to sequence…
RAPD-PCR for identification of Zoophthora radicans isolates in biological control of the potato leafhopper.
RAPD analysis revealed clear relationships among isolates derived from the same host taxon, and is proposed that this simple and relatively inexpensive method will be valuable in determining the establishment and spread of organisms released in biological control studies.
Lectotypification and status of Isaria Pers.: Fr
The nomenclatural status and history of the generic name Isaria are reviewed. Authorship and typification are discussed, and we conclude that Isaria Pers. : Fr. is a validly published generic name…
Diversity and Aggressiveness of Rhizoctonia solani and Rhizoctonia-like Fungi on Vegetables in New York.
Vegetable growers in New York, especially those growing table beets, have recently observed that the corn rotation is no longer effective in suppressing diseases caused by Rhizoctonia solani and…
A taxonomic revision of the insect biocontrol fungus Aschersonia aleyrodis, its allies with white stromata and their Hypocrella sexual states.
PCR-RFLP is used to investigate relations among species in the entomopathogenic genera Eryniopsis and Entomophaga
The results support the idea that morphology of primary conidia is of major importance in defining entomophthoralean genera and show that such studies can be conducted with species that have not been isolated, if fungal-filled cadavers can be obtained.
Tolypocladium inflatum is the anamorph of Cordyceps subsessilis
The efrapeptin profile of the C. subsessilis anamorph was found to be similar to that of the Tolypocladium inflatum anamorph.
