Families of Dothideomycetes
TLDR
Dothideomycetes comprise a highly diverse range of fungi characterized mainly by asci with two wall layers (bitunicate asci) and often with fissitunicate dehiscence, and it is hoped that by illustrating types they provide stimulation and interest so that more work is carried out in this remarkable group of fungi.

Towards a natural classification of Botryosphaeriales
TLDR
The data advances the understanding of Botryosphaeriales, there is, however, still much research to be carried out with resolution of families and genera, linkage of sexual and asexual morphs and differentiation of cryptic species. Expand
Naming and outline of Dothideomycetes–2014 including proposals for the protection or suppression of generic names
TLDR
This paper lists all genera currently accepted by us in Dothideomycetes, including pleomorphic and non-pleomorphic genera, and proposes single generic names for future usage, following the rulings of the current ICN. Expand
Phyllosticta capitalensis, a widespread endophyte of plants
TLDR
That P. capitalensis is often isolated as an endophyte has important implications in fungal biology and plant health, and often incorrectly identified as a species of quarantine importance, which has implications for trade in agricultural and forestry production. Expand
Phyllosticta—an overview of current status of species recognition
TLDR
A phylogenetic tree is generated by combined gene analysis (ITS, partial actin and partial elongation factor 1α) using a selected set of taxa including type-derived sequences available in GenBank to present an example of resolved and newly described species in the genus Phyllosticta. Expand
Improving ITS sequence data for identification of plant pathogenic fungi
TLDR
A concerted effort was reported on to identify high-quality reference sequences for various plant pathogenic fungi and to re-annotate incorrectly or insufficiently annotated public ITS sequences from these fungal lineages, to enrich the sequences with geographical and ecological metadata. Expand
Colletotrichum species from Jasmine (Jasminum sambac)
TLDR
Nine strains of Colletotrichum species isolated from diseased leaves and flowers and partial ITS rDNA sequences were analysed and morphologies compared across similar species, two taxa are formally introduced as new species. Expand
Recommended names for pleomorphic genera in Dothideomycetes
TLDR
Twenty new combinations are made: Acrogenospora carmichaeliana (Berk.) Rossman & Crous, Alternaria scrophulariae (Desm.), Pyrenophora catenaria (Drechsler), and Zeloasperisporium over Neomicrothyrium (Butin). Expand
A phylogenetic re-evaluation of Phyllosticta (Botryosphaeriales)
TLDR
This study redefines Phyllosticta, and shows that it clusters sister to the Botryosphaeriaceae, for which the older family name Phylostictaceae is resurrected. Expand
Camarosporium-Like Species are Polyphyletic in Pleosporales; Introducing Paracamarosporium and Pseudocamarosporium gen. nov. in Montagnulaceae
TLDR
Molecular analyses (maximum likelihood, maximum parsimony and MrBayes) of combined LSU and SSU gene datasets show that the Camarosporium-like taxa are polyphyletic in Pleosporales. Expand
