Towards a natural classification of Botryosphaeriales
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.
Finding needles in haystacks: linking scientific names, reference specimens and molecular data for Fungi
A set of standards and protocols are proposed to improve the data quality of new sequences, and it is suggested how type and other reference sequences can be used to improve identification of Fungi.
A multigene phylogeny toward a new phylogenetic classification of Leotiomycetes
A phylogeny based on up to 15 concatenated genes across 279 specimens of Leotiomycetes constitutes a framework for enabling future taxonomically targeted studies using deliberate specimen selection, and an ITS gene tree is presented, particularly targeting ex-type specimens of generic type species.
Botrytis fabiopsis, a new species causing chocolate spot of broad bean in central China
It is suggested that B. fabiopsis is a new causal agent for chocolate spot of broad bean, which is closely related to B. galanthina, the causal agent of gray mold disease of Galanthus sp.
Genera in Bionectriaceae, Hypocreaceae, and Nectriaceae (Hypocreales) proposed for acceptance or rejection
Twelve widely used generic names in three families of Hypocreales are proposed for acceptance, either by conservation or protection, despite their lack of priority of publication, or because they are widely used asexual morph-typified names.
Morphological and phylogenetic identification of Botrytis sinoviticola, a novel cryptic species causing gray mold disease of table grapes (Vitis vinifera) in China
This study suggests that Bs is a cryptic species sympatric with Bc on table grapes in China, and is found to have 20 C optimum for mycelial growth and 25 C for conidial germination.
Botrytis sinoallii: a new species of the grey mould pathogen on Allium crops in China
Results of inoculation tests showed that B. sinoallii is a newly identified agent that can cause leaf blight of green onion, garlic, and garlic chives, and potential impact on production of Allium crops in China is discussed.
Discovery from a large-scaled survey of Trichoderma in soil of China
Twenty-three new species belonging to the green-ascospored clades are discovered and their phylogenetic positions are determined by sequence analyses of the combined partial sequences of translation elongation factor 1-alpha and the second largest RNA polymerase subunit encoding genes.
