Acrodictys-like wood decay fungi from southern China, with two new families Acrodictyaceae and Junewangiaceae
Phylogenetic analyses of ncLSU, ncSSU, ITS and tub2 sequence data lead to propose two novel families in Sordariomycetes, Acrodictyaceae and Junewangiaceae, which are characterized by darkly pigmented and muriform conidia produced from holoblastic conidiogenous cells. Expand
Anacacumisporium, a New Genus Based on Morphology and Molecular Analyses from Hainan, China
Anacacumisporium is characterized by pigmented, transversely septate, appendaged conidia and conidiophores that are brown, macronematous, mononematously and that bear one (or more ) integrated phialide at the tip. Expand
Life cycle and morphology of Physarum pusillum (Myxomycetes) on agar culture
Life cycle morphological characteristics were described for spore germination, myxamoebae, zygote, plasmodium and sporangia formation, and the complete life cycle was observed from spore to spore on agar. Expand
Atrokylindriopsis, a new genus of hyphomycetes from Hainan, China, with relationship to Chaetothyriales
Internal transcribed spacer region (ITS) and partial 28S rDNA sequences indicate placement of Atrokylindriopsis in the Chaetothyriales. Expand
Phytophthora capsici homologue of the cell cycle regulator SDA1 is required for sporangial morphology, mycelial growth and plant infection.
The results suggest that PcSDA1 plays a similar role in the regulation of the actin cytoskeleton and nuclear division in this filamentous organism as in non-filamentous yeasts and human cells. Expand
Characterization and phylogenetic analysis of the mating-type loci in the asexual ascomycete genus Ulocladium
The intergeneric phylogeny of four closely allied genera (Ulocladium, Alternaria, Cochliobolus, Stemphylium) based on MAT alignments demonstrated that MAT genes are suitable for phylogenetic analysis among alliedGenera. Expand
Two new species of Pucciniastrum producing dimorphic sori and spores from northeast of China
During field surveys for rust fungi in northeast of China, rust specimens on Galium, Aster, and Kalimeris were found and they were different to Pucciniastrum species previously reported from the same host genera, so two new species are described as P. coronisporum and P. verruculosum, respectively.
