Ophiostomatoid fungi associated with the invasive pine-infesting bark beetle, Dendroctonus valens, in China
State Key Laboratory of Integrated Management of Pest Insects and Rodents, Institute of Zoology (IOZ), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), Beijing, China Tree Protection Co-operation Programme (TPCP),Expand
Grosmannia and Leptographium spp. associated with conifer-infesting bark beetles in Finland and Russia, including Leptographium taigense sp. nov.
The overall results indicate that the diversity of Grosmannia species in the boreal forests remains poorly understood and that further studies are needed to clarify the status of several species or species complexes. Expand
The polyphagous shot hole borer (PSHB) and its fungal symbiont Fusarium euwallaceae: a new invasion in South Africa
This is the first report of PSHB and its fungal symbiont causing Fusarium dieback in South Africa, and represents the first verified case of a damaging invasive forest pest detected in a sentinel planting project, highlighting the importance of such studies. Expand
New species of Ophiostomatales from Scolytinae and Platypodinae beetles in the Cape Floristic Region, including the discovery of the sexual state of Raffaelea
This study represents the first collection of S. pallida, a species known from many environmental samples from across the world, from Scolytinae beetles, and R.vaginata, the first Raffaelea spp. Expand
Three new genera of fungi from extremely acidic soils
The adaptation of hyaline fungi from mesophilic lineages to highly acidic environments has been revealed, and the association between highly acidic and Antarctic habitats is discussed. Expand
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. Expand
Ophiostomatoid fungi associated with three pine-infesting bark beetles in South Africa.
Nine different ophiostomatoid species were identified and, among these, Leptographium serpens, L. lundbergii, and Ophiostoma ips, were most frequently encountered and newly recorded from South Africa. Expand
Delimitation of Ophiostoma quercus and its synonyms using multiple gene phylogenies
It is argued that Ophiostoma valachicum should be regarded as a valid species in need of neotypification and excluded from the list of synonyms of O. kubanicum, and confirmed that O. piceae and O. catonianum are distinct taxa. Expand
Characterisation of synnematous bark beetle-associated fungi from China, including Graphium carbonarium sp. nov.
The aim of this study was to identify a collection of ophiostomatoid fungi with synnematous anamorphs in China and results include several new fungus-host and fungus-insect associations. Expand
Draft genomes of Amanita jacksonii, Ceratocystis albifundus, Fusarium circinatum, Huntiella omanensis, Leptographium procerum, Rutstroemia sydowiana , and Sclerotinia echinophila
These seven genomes are from a number of fungal pathogens and economically important species and will add to the growing body of knowledge of these fungi and provide a value resource to researchers studying these fungi. Expand
