Towards a unified paradigm for sequence‐based identification of fungi
TLDR
All fungal species represented by at least two ITS sequences in the international nucleotide sequence databases are now given a unique, stable name of the accession number type, and the term ‘species hypothesis’ (SH) is introduced for the taxa discovered in clustering on different similarity thresholds.

Molecular Taxonomy of Phytopathogenic Fungi: A Case Study in Peronospora
TLDR
A clustering optimization method to establish a molecular taxonomy of Peronospora based on ITS nrDNA sequences connects traditional and modern taxonomic disciplines by specifically addressing the issue of how to optimally account for both traditional species concepts and genetic divergence. Expand

TLDR
Novel species of microfungi described in the present study include the following from South Africa: Camarosporium aloes, Phaeococcomyces aloes and Phoma aloes from Aloe, and D. psoraleae-pinnatae from Psoralea, Colletotrichum euphorbiae from Euphorbia, as well as three new species from Mexico.

Re-evaluation of the enigmatic species complex Saprolegnia diclina-Saprolegnia parasitica based on morphological, physiological and molecular data.
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships among isolates of the Saprolegia diclina-Saprolegnia parasitica complex were investigated based on ITS rDNA sequences, and correlated with morphological and physiological characters, suggesting these species reproduces clonally even in apparently sexually competent isolates.

Novel species of fungi described in this study include those from various countries as follows: Australia: Apiognomonia lasiopetali on Lasiopetalum sp., Blastacervulus eucalyptorum on EucalyptusExpand
Fusarium solani is responsible for mass mortalities in nests of loggerhead sea turtle, Caretta caretta, in Boavista, Cape Verde.
TLDR
This work demonstrates that a group of strains of F. solani are responsible for the symptoms observed on turtle-nesting beaches, and that they represent a risk for the survival of this endangered species. Expand
Fungal diversity notes 929–1035: taxonomic and phylogenetic contributions on genera and species of fungi
TLDR
The present study describes 12 new genera, 74 new species, three new combinations, two reference specimens, a re-circumscription of the epitype, and 15 records of sexual-asexual morph connections, new hosts and new geographical distributions. Expand
Finding needles in haystacks: linking scientific names, reference specimens and molecular data for Fungi
TLDR
A set of standards and protocols are proposed to improve the data quality of new sequences, and it is suggested how type and other reference sequences can be used to improve identification of Fungi. Expand
