Phylogenetic analysis of Aspergillus species using DNA sequences from four loci
- S. Peterson
- 1 March 2008
DNA sequences were determined for beta tubulin (BT2), calmodulin (CF), ITS and lsu rDNA (ID) and RNA polymerase II (RPB2) from ca. 460 Aspergillus isolates. RPB2 and rDNA sequences were combined and…

Phylogeny and nomenclature of the genus Talaromyces and taxa accommodated in Penicillium subgenus Biverticillium
All evidence supports the conclusions that Penicillium subgenus Biverticillium is distinct from other subgenera in Penicillsium and should be taxonomically unified with the Talaromyces species that reside in the same clade.
Polyphasic taxonomy of Aspergillus section Fumigati and its teleomorph Neosartorya
The taxonomy of Aspergillus section Fumigati with its teleomorph genus Neosartorya is revised and four new taxa are proposed: N. australensis N. ferenczii, N. papuaensis and N. warcupii, which are relegated to the category of doubtful species.

Molecular Identification of Aspergillus Species Collected for the Transplant-Associated Infection Surveillance Network
A large aggregate collection of clinical isolates from transplant patients with proven or probable invasive aspergillosis was available from the Transplant-Associated Infection Surveillance Network, a 6-year prospective surveillance study, and several newly described species were identified.
Fungal Planet description sheets: 400–468
Novel species of fungi described in the present study include the following from Australia: Vermiculariopsiella eucalypti, Mulderomyces natalis, Fusicladium paraamoenum, Neotrimmatostroma paraexcentricum, and Pseudophloeospora eUCalyptorum.
New species in Aspergillus section Terrei
Section Terrei of Aspergillus was studied using a polyphasic approach including sequence analysis of parts of the β-tubulin and calmodulin genes and the ITS region, macro- and micromorphological…
The current status of species recognition and identification in Aspergillus
A four locus DNA sequence study covering all major lineages in Aspergillus using genealogical concordance theory resulted in a species recognition system that agrees in part with phenotypic studies and reveals the presence of many undescribed species not resolved by phenotype.
