A higher-level phylogenetic classification of the Fungi.
A comprehensive phylogenetic classification of the kingdom Fungi is proposed, with reference to recent molecular phylogenetic analyses, and with input from diverse members of the fungal taxonomic… Expand
The simple-septate basidiomycetes: a synopsis
The integrated analysis of several ultrastructural features such as septal pore apparatus, form, and behavior of the spindle pole bodies, types of host–parasite interaction, presence or absence of colacosome, symplechosomes, atractsomes, and cystosomes as well as nuclear rDNA sequences coding for small- and large-subunit rRNA are compared.

A phylogenetic hypothesis of Ustilaginomycotina based on multiple gene analyses and morphological data1
The most recent consensus as to the phylogeny of this group is presented and Entorrhizomycetes, ExobasidiomycETes and Ceraceosorales are proposed as new taxa, and the description of Ustilaginomycets is emended. Expand
Sebacinales Everywhere: Previously Overlooked Ubiquitous Fungal Endophytes
Using DNA-based detection and electron microscopy, data suggest that the multitude of mycorrhizal interactions in Sebacinales may have arisen from an ancestral endophytic habit by specialization, and may be a previously unrecognized universal hidden force in plant ecosystems. Expand
Basal hymenomycetes belonging to the Sebacinaceae are ectomycorrhizal on temperate deciduous trees.
Two sebacinoids of divergent rDNA sequences were demonstrated to form similar ectomycorrhizas, with a well-developed Hartig net and a hyphal mantle having thick-walled outer mantle hyphae. Expand
Taxonomic studies in the Microbotryomycetidae: Leucosporidium golubevii sp. nov., Leucosporidiella gen. nov. and the new orders Leucosporidiales and Sporidiobolales
The current concept of the genus Leucosporidium and its apparent polyphyletic nature were addressed, as well as the relationships of this genus with the Microbotryales and Mastigobasidium, and the concepts of the order Sporidiales and family Sporidiobolaceae were reviewed. Expand
Phylogenetic placements of ustilaginomycetous anamorphs as deduced from nuclear LSU rDNA sequences
Maximum parsimony and neighbour joining confirm the new suprageneric system of Ustilaginomycetes and indicate that the species of Pseudozyma represent anamorphs of UStilaginales parasitizing grasses. Expand
Spotlights on heterobasidiomycetes.
Ultrastructural markers and systematics in smut fungi and allied taxa
To identify monophyletic groups within the smut fungi and related taxa, characteristics of hyphal septation and zones of host–parasite interaction were analyzed by serial-section electron microscop...
PHYLOGENETIC STUDIES ON NUCLEAR LARGE SUBUNIT RIBOSOMAL DNA SEQUENCES OF SMUT FUNGI AND RELATED TAXA
To show phylogenetic relationships among the smut fungi and their relatives, a part of the nuclear LSU rDNA from 43 different species of smut fungus and related taxa was sequenced and two groups of smUT fungi appeared. Expand
