Polypores and genus concepts in Phanerochaetaceae (Polyporales, Basidiomycota)
We explored whether DNA-phylogeny-based and morphology-based genus concepts can be reconciled in the basidiomycete family Phanerochaetaceae. Our results show that macromorphology of fruiting bodiesExpand

A reappraisal of orders and families within the subclass Chaetothyriomycetidae (Eurotiomycetes, Ascomycota)
The subclass Chaetothyriomycetidae (Eurotiomycetes, Ascomycota) is an assemblage of ecologically diverse species, ranging from mutualistic lichenised fungi to human opportunistic pathogens. RecentExpand

Finding needles in haystacks: linking scientific names, reference specimens and molecular data for Fungi
TLDR
A set of standards and protocols is proposed to improve the data quality of new sequences, and we suggest how type and other reference sequences can be used to improve identification of Fungi. Expand

Small insertions at a shared position in the SSU rDNA of Lecanorales (lichen-forming Ascomycetes)
Abstract Small insertions are reported from the SSU rDNA of the genera Cladonia, Cladina, Stereocaulon, Pertusaria and Physcia (lichen-forming Lecanorales, Ascomycetes). The insertions range inExpand

Pseudocyphellaria crocata (Ascomycota: Lobariaceae) in the Americas is revealed to be thirteen species, and none of them is P. crocata
Abstract We provide a phylogenetic revision of the Pseudocyphellaria crocata complex in the Americas. Specimens traditionally identified as P. crocata, based on their cyanobacterial photobiont,Expand

Aspicilia rogeri sp. nov. (Megasporaceae) and other allied vagrant species in North America
Abstract A short revision of the vagrant Aspicilia species of North America is presented based on morphological, molecular and ecological data. Vagrant Aspicilia are common lichens throughout theExpand

Considerations and consequences of allowing DNA sequence data as types of fungal taxa
Nomenclatural type definitions are one of the most important concepts in biological nomenclature. Being physical objects that can be re-studied by other researchers, types permanently link taxonomyExpand

Phylogenetic relationships of Stereocaulaceae based on simultaneous analysis of beta‐tubulin, GAPDH and SSU rDNA sequences
The phylogenetic relationships of the lichenised ascomycete family Stereocaulaceae were investigated with partial beta-tubulin, partial glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH) and SSU rDNAExpand
