Diversity of fungal endophytes in leaves and stems of wild rubber trees (Hevea brasiliensis) in Peru
Comparisons between leaves and sapwood demonstrated a spatial heterogeneity in endophyte assemblages among plant parts and sites, with a greater diversity of endophytes found in sapwood than in leaves. Expand
Systematics of the Trichoderma harzianum species complex and the re-identification of commercial biocontrol strains
The taxonomy of the T. harzianum species complex is revised to include at least 14 species, and two new combinations are proposed, T. lentiforme and T. inhamatum. Expand
Delimitation of Neonectria and Cylindrocarpon (Nectriaceae, Hypocreales, Ascomycota) and related genera with Cylindrocarpon-like anamorphs
A multilocus analysis was applied to representatives of the informal groups to determine their level of phylogenetic support as a first step towards taxonomic revision of Neonectria sensu lato and five genera are recognised. Expand
Hypocrea/Trichoderma (Ascomycota, Hypocreales, Hypocreaceae): species with green ascospores.
The present study showed that phenotypic characters alone are generally not helpful in understanding phylogenetic relationships in this group of organisms, because teleomorph characters are generally highly conserved and anamorph characters tend to be morphologically divergent within monophyletic lineages or clades.

Multilocus phylogenetic structure within the Trichoderma harzianum/Hypocrea lixii complex.
Trichoderma harzianum is a ubiquitous species in the environment and is effective in the biological control of plant-pathogenic fungi. T. harzianum has not been linked unequivocally to its sexualExpand
Species delimitation in fungal endophyte diversity studies and its implications in ecological and biogeographic inferences
The results demonstrate that ITS alone generally underestimates the number of species predicted by other nuclear loci and question the use of ITS and arbitrary divergence thresholds for species delimitation. Expand
A monograph of Allantonectria, Nectria, and Pleonectria (Nectriaceae, Hypocreales, Ascomycota) and their pycnidial, sporodochial, and synnematous anamorphs
Results from the phylogenetic analyses demonstrate that species previously regarded as the genus Nectria having Gyrostroma, Tubercularia, and Zythiostroma anamorphs belong in two major paraphyletic clades. Expand
Hypocrea/Trichoderma: species with conidiophore elongations and green conidia
Species of Trichoderma and Hypocrea that have green conidia and sterile or fertile elongations of their conidiophores are described or redescribed and their phylogenetic position explored and anamorph and teleomorph phenotype are not useful predictors of relationships. Expand
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. Expand
Genera in Bionectriaceae, Hypocreaceae, and Nectriaceae (Hypocreales) proposed for acceptance or rejection
Twelve widely used generic names in three families of Hypocreales are proposed for acceptance, either by conservation or protection, despite their lack of priority of publication, or because they are widely used asexual morph-typified names. Expand
