Reconstructing the early evolution of Fungi using a six-gene phylogeny
It is indicated that there may have been at least four independent losses of the flagellum in the kingdom Fungi, and the enigmatic microsporidia seem to be derived from an endoparasitic chytrid ancestor similar to Rozella allomycis, on the earliest diverging branch of the fungal phylogenetic tree.

Fungal diversity notes 111–252—taxonomic and phylogenetic contributions to fungal taxa
This paper is a compilation of notes on 142 fungal taxa, including five new families, 20 new genera, and 100 new species, representing a wide taxonomic and geographic range. The new families,… Expand
Families of Dothideomycetes
Dothideomycetes comprise a highly diverse range of fungi characterized mainly by asci with two wall layers (bitunicate asci) and often with fissitunicate dehiscence, and it is hoped that by illustrating types they provide stimulation and interest so that more work is carried out in this remarkable group of fungi.

This study provides a phylogenetic synthesis for the Fungi and a framework for future phylogenetic studies on fungi and the impact of this newly discovered phylogenetic structure on supraordinal classifications is discussed. Expand
Lichens and lichenicolous fungi from New Guinea
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. Expand
New species and new records of American lichenicolous fungi
- P. Diederich
A study of the apothecial pigments does not support the distinction of Nesolechia and Phacopsis, and a key to all known species of Lichenodiplis and Minutoexcipula is given. Expand
New or interesting lichens and lichenicolous fungi from Belgium, Luxembourg and northern France. IX.
This species has recently been recognized as distinct from the closely related, but aquatic Verrucaria praetermissa (Trevis.) Anzi, and the records of the latter on shaded outcrops refer to it. Expand
