Sizing up Septoria
The phylogenetic generic limits of Septoria, Stagonospora, and other related genera such as Sphaerulina, Phaeosphaeria and Phaeoseptoria are resolved using sequences of the partial 28S nuclear ribosomal RNA and RPB2 genes of a large set of isolates, leading to the introduction of 14 new genera, 36 new species, and 19 new combinations.

Mycosphaerellaceae – Chaos or clarity?
A phylogenetic framework for future taxonomic work within the Mycosphaerellaceae is provided and many well-known genera are shown to be paraphyletic, with several synapomorphic characters that have evolved more than once within the family. Expand
The Colletotrichum orbiculare species complex: Important pathogens of field crops and weeds
A new species is described with the same epithet and a type specimen that agrees with the current understanding of this species, and is linked to a living culture, as well as four new species from weeds. Expand

Tradescantia fluminensis, an exotic weed affecting native forest regeneration in New Zealand: Ecological surveys, safety tests and releases of four biocontrol agents from Brazil
Abstract In the native range of Tradescantia fluminensis in SE Brazil surveys revealed a natural enemy biota attacking the plant that was rich in potential biocontrol agents for New Zealand (NZ),Expand

Yet More “Weeds” in the Garden: Fungal Novelties from Nests of Leaf-Cutting Ants
There are expected to be many more species of the genus Escovopsis and its relatives associated with nests of both the lower and higher Attini throughout their neotropical range, as suggested in previous studies. Expand
The mycobiota of the weed Mikania micrantha in southern Brazil with particular reference to fungal pathogens for biological control
Field observations indicate that Basidiophora montana has potential as a classical biological control agent of the weed in Old World subtropical or montane climates, whilst Mycosphaerella mikania-micranthae and the microcyclic rust Puccinia spegazzinii appear to be equally damaging to the host but to have a wider climatic range and thus are highly promising agents for introduction throughout the Palaeotropics.

Towards a phylogenetic reappraisal of Parmulariaceae and Asterinaceae (Dothideomycetes)
An LSU rDNA phylogenetic analysis was performed indicating the correct phylogenetic placement of the Asterinales within the Dothideomycetes, and it is clear that the Parmulariaceae as currently circumscribed is polyphyletic, and that the Asterinaceae and ParmULARiaceae are related, which justifies the maintenance of the order Asterinale.
