Revisiting photobiont diversity in the lichen family Verrucariaceae (Ascomycota)
The diversity of photobionts in this lichen family was investigated using molecular markers amplified from DNA extracts of lichen thalli and cultured isolates to explore patterns of association between fungal and algal partners.
Lichens and lichenicolous fungi of the Klondike Gold Rush National Historic Park, Alaska, in a global biodiversity context
In the first survey of its kind from the region, 766 taxa of lichens and lichenicolous fungi from the Klondike Gold Rush National Historic Park are reported, providing an overview of the lichen inventories with highest species number worldwide and discussing theklondike in the context of broader patterns in lichen richness.
Notes for genera: Ascomycota
This work is intended to provide the foundation for updating the ascomycete component of the “Without prejudice list of generic names of Fungi” published in 2013, which will be developed into a list of protected generic names.
Molecular systematics of the wood-inhabiting, lichen-forming genus Xylographa (Baeomycetales, Ostropomycetidae) with eight new species.
A morphological and secondary metabolite-based assessment of material from North and South America, Europe and Asia generated a three-locus phylogeny based on sequences of the internal transcribed spacer, 28S nuclear rDNA and mitochondrial small subunit rDNA that recognizes twenty species in Xylographa and provides a thorough revision of nomenclature.

There was a general trend for low selectivity in the relationships, high specificity was found in some associations and differential selectivity was observed in some lichen-forming fungi, but no spatial structure was detected in the distribution of photobionts in the studied area.
Towards a revised generic classification of lecanoroid lichens (Lecanoraceae, Ascomycota) based on molecular, morphological and chemical evidence
The phylogenetic relationship of lecanoroid lichens is studied and the presence of additional clades of species currently placed in Lecanora sensu lato that warrant taxonomic recognition is indicated but additional data will be necessary before the circumscription of these entities is fully understood.
Differential effects of biocide treatments on saxicolous communities: Case study of the Segovia cathedral cloister (Spain)
Symbiotic lifestyle and phylogenetic relationships of the bionts of Mastodia tessellata (Ascomycota, incertae sedis).
The biological nature of some symbioses is unclear because it is often not easy to discern whether the symbionts obtain any benefits from the association. Mastodia tessellata, a symbiosis between a…
Austroparmelina, a new Australasian lineage in parmelioid lichens (Parmeliaceae, Ascomycota)
The authors' results provide evidence that Parmelina is polyphyletic and the species fall into two major well-supported groups (Groups I and II), which is sister to the East Asian temperate genus Myelochroa.
One hundred new species of lichenized fungi : a signature of undiscovered global diversity
A total of 100 new species of lichenized fungi are described, representing a wide taxonomic and geographic range, and emphasizing the dire need for taxonomic expertise in lichenology.
