A higher-level phylogenetic classification of the Fungi.
A preliminary overview of the Diaporthales based on large subunit nuclear ribosomal DNA sequences
The ascomycete order Diaporthales includes a number of plant pathogenic fungi such as Cryphonectria parasitica, the chestnut blight fungus, as well as many asexually reproducing fungi without known…

Data reveal that species of Stachybotrys including S. chartarum, S. albipes, species of Myrothecium, and two other tropical hypocrealean species form a previously unknown monophyletic lineage within the Hypocreales.
An overview of the systematics of the Sordariomycetes based on a four-gene phylogeny.
The phylogenetic relationship among 106 taxa from 12 orders out of 16 in the Sordariomycetes was investigated based on four nuclear loci, and most of the orders are recognized as monophyletic groups.

Based on phylogenetic informativeness profiles, EF1-α, Apn2 and HIS genes are recognised as the best markers for defining species in the D. eres complex.
The Ascomycota tree of life: a phylum-wide phylogeny clarifies the origin and evolution of fundamental reproductive and ecological traits.
A 6-gene, 420-species maximum-likelihood phylogeny of Ascomycota, the largest phylum of Fungi, and a phylogenetic informativeness analysis of all 6 genes and a series of ancestral character state reconstructions support a terrestrial, saprobic ecology as ancestral are presented.
A review of the phylogeny and biology of the Diaporthales
The ascomycete order Diaporthales is reviewed based on recent phylogenetic data that outline the families and integrate related asexual fungi and Pseudovalsaceae is recognized in a restricted sense, and Sydowiellaceae is circumscribed more broadly than originally conceived.
Leaf-inhabiting genera of the Gnomoniaceae, Diaporthales
The concepts of the leaf-inhabiting genera in the Gnomoniaceae are reevaluated using multiple genes, specifically nrLSU, translation elongation factor 1-alpha (tef1-α), and RNA polymerase II second largest subunit (rpb2) for 64 isolates and ITS sequences were generated for 322 isolates.
Trichoderma species associated with the green mold epidemic of commercially grown Agaricus bisporus.
These forms cause the green mold epidemic in commercially grown Agaricus bisporus in North America and Europe, respectively and are effectively indistinguishable morphologically although they have subtly different growth rates at 25 C on SNA and statistically significant micromorphological differences.
