Diaporthe: a genus of endophytic, saprobic and plant pathogenic fungi
TLDR
Several taxa of Diaporthe are confirmed to have wide host ranges, suggesting that they move freely among hosts, frequently co-colonising diseased or dead tissue. Expand
Generic concepts in Nectriaceae
TLDR
A multi-gene phylogenetic analysis using partial sequences for the 28S large subunit (LSU) nrDNA, the internal transcribed spacer region and intervening 5.8S nrRNA gene (ITS) resolved 47 genera in the Nectriaceae, including several genera for which no sequence data was previously available. Expand
Phylogenetic lineages in the Botryosphaeriales: a systematic and evolutionary framework
TLDR
Molecular clock dating on radiations within the Botryosphaeriales suggests that the order originated in the Cretaceous period around 103 (45-188) mya, with most of the diversification in the Tertiary period. Expand
Fungal Planet description sheets: 214–280
Novel species of microfungi described in the present study include the following from South Africa: Cercosporella dolichandrae from Dolichandra unguiscati, Seiridium podocarpi from PodocarpusExpand
Families, genera, and species of Botryosphaeriales.
TLDR
This study analysed 499 isolates to produce an expanded phylogenetic backbone for Botryosphaeriales, which will help to delimit novelties at species, genus and family level in future. Expand
Fungal Planet description sheets: 320–370
Novel species of fungi described in the present study include the following from Malaysia: Castanediella eucalypti from Eucalyptus pellita, Codinaea acacia from Acacia mangium, Emarcea eucalyptigenaExpand
Lasiodiplodia species associated with dieback disease of mango (Mangifera indica) in Egypt
TLDR
Pathogenicity tests with all recognised species showed that they are able to cause dieback disease symptoms on mango seedlings, and a new species, namely L. egyptiacae, was identified. Expand
Fungal Planet description sheets: 400–468
Novel species of fungi described in the present study include the following from Australia: Vermiculariopsiella eucalypti, Mulderomyces natalis (incl. Mulderomyces gen. nov.), FusicladiumExpand
Generic hyper-diversity in Stachybotriaceae
TLDR
Phylogenetic inference showed that both the genera Myrothecium and Stachybotrys are polyphyletic resulting in the introduction of 13 new genera with myro thecium-like morphology and eight new generas with stachybotrylike morphology. Expand
Fungal Planet description sheets: 107–127
TLDR
Novel species of microfungi described in the present study include the following from Australia and South Africa; Morphological and culture characteristics along with ITS DNA barcodes are provided for all taxa. Expand
