Several taxa that share similar ascomatal and ascospore characters occur in monotypic or small genera throughout the Sordariomycetidae with uncertain relationships based on their morphology. Taxa in the genera Duradens, Leptosporella, Linocarpon, and Rimaconus share similar morphologies of conical ascomata, carbonised peridia and elongate ascospores, while taxa in the genera Caudatispora, Erythromada and Lasiosphaeriella possess clusters of superficial, obovoid ascomata with variable ascospores…

Coprophilous contributions to the phylogeny of Lasiosphaeriaceae and allied taxa within Sordariales (Ascomycota, Fungi)
TLDR
This study focuses on the phylogenetic relationships of the coprophilous genera, Anopodium, Apodospora, Arnium, Fimetariella and Zygospermella, and distinguishes four lineages of Lasiosphaeriaceae taxa.
Towards a natural classification and backbone tree for Sordariomycetes
TLDR
An updated outline of the Sordariomycetes and a backbone tree incorporating asexual and sexual genera in the class are provided and new links between sexual and asexual genera and thus synonymies are provided.
Phialemoniopsis, a new genus of Sordariomycetes, and new species of Phialemonium and Lecythophora
TLDR
A polyphasic study is performed based on a detailed morphological study and on the analysis of sequences of four loci: the internal transcribed spacer regions, the D1/D2 domains of the 28S rRNA, actin and β-tubulin genes, to propose the new genus Phialemoniopsis to accommodate the opportunistic fungi Phialemonium curvatum and Sarcopodium oculorum and two new species.
Thyridium revised: Synonymisation of Phialemoniopsis under Thyridium and establishment of a new order, Thyridiales
TLDR
The genus Thyridium, previously known as a saprobic or hemibiotrophic ascomycete on various plants, was revised taxonomically and phylogenetically and Phialemoniopsis, a genus encompassing medically important species, is synonymised with Thyridiaceae based on molecular evidence and morphological similarities in their asexual characters.
Xylochrysis lucida gen. et sp. nov., a new lignicolous ascomycete (Sordariomycetidae) with holoblastic conidiogenesis
TLDR
Morphological and molecular DNA data support the recognition of this new genus and suggest that Xylochrysis is most closely related to the genera Ceratolenta, Cyanoannulus and Woswasia.
Notes for genera: Ascomycota
TLDR
This work is intended to provide the foundation for updating the ascomycete component of the “Without prejudice list of generic names of Fungi” published in 2013, which will be developed into a list of protected generic names.
Morpho-molecular diversity of Linocarpaceae (Chaetosphaeriales): Claviformispora gen. nov. from decaying branches of Phyllostachys heteroclada
TLDR
Maximum Likelihood and Bayesian Inference phylogenetic analyses, based on DNA sequence data from ITS, LSU, SSU and TEF-1α regions, provide further evidence that the fungus is a distinct genus within this family.
Morpho-molecular diversity of Linocarpaceae (Chaetosphaeriales): Claviformispora gen. nov. from decaying branches of Phyllostachys heteroclada
TLDR
Maximum Likelihood and Bayesian Inference phylogenetic analyses, based on DNA sequence data from ITS, LSU, SSU and TEF-1α regions, provide further evidence that the fungus is a distinct genus within this family.
Extremotolerant fungi from alpine rock lichens and their phylogenetic relationships
TLDR
The symbiotic structures of the Lichen thalli appear to be a shared habitat of phylogenetically diverse stress-tolerant fungi, which potentially benefit from the lichen niche in otherwise hostile habitats.
Simplified and efficient DNA extraction protocol for Meliolaceae specimens
TLDR
The results indicate that this direct DNA extraction method is suitable to yield quality DNA sufficient for polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplifications of several commonly used DNA regions in fungal systematics.

A natural classification of Lasiosphaeria based on nuclear LSU rDNA sequences.
TLDR
The circumscription of Lasiosphaeria has been considerably narrowed to better reflect a natural classification and three new genera, Echinosphaeria, Hilberina, and Immersiella, are erected for three of these clades while the genus Lasia is reintroduced for a fourth clade.
Molecular systematics of the Sordariales: the order and the family Lasiosphaeriaceae redefined
TLDR
Two new orders, Coniochaetales and Chaetosphaeriales, are recognized and the Boliniaceae is accepted in the Boliniales, and the Nitschkiaceae is acceptance in the Coronophorales.
Neotropical Ascomycetes 7. Caudatispora biapiculata sp. nov. from Puerto Rico
Caudatispora biapiculata, a new species based on Puerto Rico material, is described and illustrated and compared with the only other species in the genus, C. palmicola. Caudatispora is characterized
Neotropical Ascomycetes 13. Cornipulvina and Erythromada, two new genera from the Caribbean and elsewhere
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses of nuclear 28S large subunit (LSU) sequences supports the establishment of both Erythromada lanciospora and Cornipulvina.
Widespread occurrence of spliceosomal introns in the rDNA genes of ascomycetes.
TLDR
The analyses suggest that these spliceosomal introns are of relatively recent origin, i.e., within the Euascomycetes, and have arisen through aberrant reverse-splicing of free pre-mRNA introns into rRNAs.
Integrating ambiguously aligned regions of DNA sequences in phylogenetic analyses without violating positional homology.
TLDR
A new method is presented that allows the inclusion of ambiguously aligned regions without violating homology in phylogenetic analyses by integrating previously nonaccessible characters without violating positional homology, and can improve branch length estimations when using parsimony.
CONFIDENCE LIMITS ON PHYLOGENIES: AN APPROACH USING THE BOOTSTRAP
  • J. Felsenstein
  • Economics
    Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 1985
TLDR
The recently‐developed statistical method known as the “bootstrap” can be used to place confidence intervals on phylogenies and shows significant evidence for a group if it is defined by three or more characters.
MrBayes 3: Bayesian phylogenetic inference under mixed models
TLDR
MrBayes 3 performs Bayesian phylogenetic analysis combining information from different data partitions or subsets evolving under different stochastic evolutionary models to analyze heterogeneous data sets and explore a wide variety of structured models mixing partition-unique and shared parameters.
MRBAYES: Bayesian inference of phylogenetic trees
TLDR
The program MRBAYES performs Bayesian inference of phylogeny using a variant of Markov chain Monte Carlo, and an executable is available at http://brahms.rochester.edu/software.html.
