A reappraisal of the phylogenetic integrity of bitunicate ascomycete fungi belonging to or previously affiliated with the Hysteriaceae, Mytilinidiaceae, Gloniaceae and Patellariaceae is presented, based on an analysis of 121 isolates and four nuclear genes, the ribosomal large and small subunits, transcription elongation factor 1 and the second largest RNA polymerase II subunit. A geographically diverse and high density taxon sampling strategy was employed, including multiple isolates/species… 

Taxonomic novelties of hysteriform Dothideomycetes

A new order, Gloniales, is introduced to accommodate Glonium, a new family, Acrogenosporaceae, to accommodate Acrogensospora, five new species (Hysterium doimaeensis, H. thailandica, Hysterobrevium hakeae, Hy. rosae and Mytilinidion didymospora) and a new combination (Purpurepithecium minus).

A New Hysteriform Dothideomycete (Gloniaceae, Pleosporomycetidae Incertae sedis), Purpurepithecium murisporum gen. et sp. nov. on Pine Cone Scales

A new genus is introduced from dead scales of pine cones collected on the ground in Chiang Mai Province, Thailand, with a purple pigmented epithecium, hyaline to dark brown muriform ascospores and a Psiloglonium stygium-like asexual morph which is produced in culture.

Minutisphaerales (Dothideomycetes, Ascomycota): a new order of freshwater ascomycetes including a new family, Minutisphaeraceae, and two new species from North Carolina, USA

The Minutisphaera clade was strongly supported within the Dothideomycetes with likelihood and Bayesian statistics but did not share phylogenetic affinities with any existing taxonomic group within theDothideometes.

HighlightsoftheDidymellaceae:ApolyphasicapproachtocharacterisePhoma andrelatedpleosporaleangenera

The phylogenetic analysis revealed that the current Boeremaean subdivision is incorrect from an evolutionary point of view, revealing the genus Phoma to be highly polyphyletic.

Revision of Lophiotremataceae (Pleosporales, Dothideomycetes): Aquasubmersaceae, Cryptocoryneaceae, and Hermatomycetaceae fam. nov.

The family Lophiotremataceae is taxonomically revised on the basis of morphological observations and phylogenetic analyses of sequences of nuclear rDNA SSU, ITS, and LSU regions and tef1 and rpb2 genes, resulting in three new families and two new genera.

First report of Rhytidhysteron hysterinum from Iran

Both morphological and molecular characteristics were used in order to identify the isolate, and the sequence of examined isolate showed 100% similarity to Eutryblidiella (Rhytidhysteron) hysterina strain CBS 316.

El género Rhytidhysteron (Dothideomycetes, Ascomycota) en México

The genus Rhytidhysteron has a high diversity of species in Mexico, and most specimens have been found on decomposing branches, mainly of genera of the Fabaceae family in tropical dry forest, which suggest that this group of plants represent the microhabitat to which Rhytids Hysteron species have best adapted.

6 Pezizomycotina: Dothideomycetes and Arthoniomycetes

This review describes the latest taxonomic classifications substantiated with DNA and protein sequence comparisons and discusses morphology, biology, and ecology within this context.

Highlights of the Didymellaceae: A polyphasic approach to characterise Phoma and related pleosporalean genera

The phylogenetic analysis revealed that the current Boeremaean subdivision is incorrect from an evolutionary point of view, revealing the genus Phoma to be highly polyphyletic.

Refined families of Dothideomycetes: Dothideomycetidae and Pleosporomycetidae

An overall phylogenetic tree of families in Dothideomycetes is provided based on combined analysis of LSU, SSU, rpb-2 and tef1 sequence data, and phylogenetic trees for each order in DothsideomyCetidae and PleosporomycETidae are provided.



Parallel evolution of hysterothecial ascomata in ascolocularous fungi (Ascomycota, Fungi)

This study established a monophyletic hysterothecial clade nested within Pleosporales, for which a new genus is proposed, Anteaglonium gen. nov, indicating that the hysterotheactic type of ascomata may have evolved several times within the ascolocularous fungi.


The Hysteriaceae were placed in the Dothideales by Arnaud, in the Pseudosphaeriales by Nannfeldt (1932) and Gaumann (1949), in the separate order Hysteriales closely related to the Pseudophaeriale by Miller (1948) and Luttrell (1951), and in the new order Dothiorales along with the Dothsioraceae by Muller and von Arx (1950).

Applanodictyosporous Pleosporales: Clathrospora, Comoclathris, GraphyIlium, Macrospora, and Platysporoides

Six genera of the order Pleosporales are revised taxonomically. Although five genera have unusual applanate ascospores, they are members of three different families. Clathrospora (10 species, 2 new),

The species of Hemigrapha (lichenicolous Ascomycetes, Dothideales) on Peltigerales

The species of Hemigrapha (lichenicolous Ascomycetes, Dothideales) growing on Peltigerales are revised. H. atlantica sp. nov., on the cyanobacterial morph of Sticta canariensis from the Azores and

Phylogenetic origins of the asexual mycorrhizal symbiont Cenococcum geophilum Fr. and other mycorrhizal fungi among the ascomycetes.

Parsimony and distance analyses positioned C. geophilum as a basal, intermediate lineage between the two Loculoascomycete orders, the Pleosporales and the Dothidiales, and strongly supported Elaphomyces to be of Plectomycete origin.

Taxonomy and biodiversity of hysteriaceous ascomycetes in fynbos

A five-gene phylogeny of Pezizomycotina.

Pezizomycotina is the largest subphylum of Ascomycota and includes the vast majority of filamentous, ascoma-producing species, and the seven remaining classes formed a monophyletic group that corresponds to Leotiomyceta.

The family Pleosporaceae: intergeneric relationships and phylogenetic perspectives based on sequence analyses of partial 28S rDNA.

Phylogenies indicate that Wettsteinina should be excluded from the Pleosporaceae, which is probably polyphyletic and anamorphic characters appear to be significant (especially in Cochliobolus), while ascospore morphologies are poor indicators of phylogenetic relationships among these loculoascomycetes.
