A Beauveria phylogeny inferred from nuclear ITS and EF1-α sequences: evidence for cryptic diversification and links to Cordyceps teleomorphs
TLDR
Lineage diversity detected within clades A, B and C suggests that prevailing morphological species concepts underestimate species diversity within these groups, and establishes a phylogenetic framework for further taxonomic, phylogenetic and comparative biological investigations of Beauveria and their corresponding Cordyceps teleomorphs.
A multilocus phylogeny of the Metarhizium anisopliae lineage
TLDR
The phylogenetic and in some cases morphological evidence supports the monophyly of nine terminal taxa in the M. anisopliae complex, and it is proposed to recognize at species rank M. guizhouense, M. pingshaense and M. robertsii.
Phylogeny of mycoplasmalike organisms (phytoplasmas): a basis for their classification
TLDR
It is proposed that MLOs should be represented taxonomically at the minimal level of genus and that each phylogenetically distinct MLO subclade identified should represent at least a distinct species under this new genus.
Phylogeny and systematics of the anamorphic, entomopathogenic genus Beauveria
TLDR
A multilocus phylogeny of Beauveria based on partial sequences of RPB1, RPB2, TEF and the nuclear intergenic region, Bloc is presented and used to assess diversity within the genus and to evaluate species concepts and their taxonomic status.
Phylogenetic relationships of agaric fungi based on nuclear large subunit ribosomal DNA sequences.
TLDR
Phylogenetic relationships of mushrooms and their relatives within the order Agaricales were addressed by using nuclear large subunit ribosomal DNA sequences to provide a framework for future systematics studies in the Agaricalses and suggestions for analyzing large molecular data sets.
Colletotrichum gloeosporioides s.l. associated with Theobroma cacao and other plants in Panamá: multilocus phylogenies distinguish host-associated pathogens from asymptomatic endophytes
TLDR
Two new species are formally described, C. tropicale and C. ignotum, that are frequent asymptomatic associates of cacao and other Neotropical plant species, and epitypify C. theobromicola, which is associated with foliar and fruit anthracnose lesions of cacoe and other plant hosts.
Clarification of generic and species boundaries for Metarhizium and related fungi through multigene phylogenetics
TLDR
A unified concept of sexual and asexual states in Metarhizium is proposed, combining the majority of species recognized in Metacordyceps as well as the green-spored Nomuraea species and those in the more recently described genus Chamaeleomyces.
Molecular systematics of the Hypocreales: a teleomorph gene phylogeny and the status of their anamorphs
TLDR
Phylogenetic relationships among 40 species in the Hypocreales and Clavicipitales were inferred from sequence data obtained from the nuclear large-subunit ribosomal DNA, and four groupings were resolved and are informally designated as the Hypocrea, Claviceps, Bionectria, and Nectria groups.
