Chaunopycnis alba gen. et sp. nov. is a cosmopolitan soil fungus with an unusual type of conidioma enclosed in a loosely knit wall of narrow hyaline hyphae which bear little-differentiated, branched conidiophores and cylindrical phialides at the inner surface. 
A New Report on Three Species of Sordariomycetes Class Isolated from Soil in Korea
Three fungal strains belonging to the class Sordariomycetes, namely BH-06, 17-039 and BE12-1, were isolated from soils in Korea and identified as Chaunopycnis alba, Myrothecium cinctum and HumicolaExpand
Novel endophytic lineages of Tolypocladium provide new insights into the ecology and evolution of Cordyceps-like fungi
This study stresses the importance of integrating asexual and sexual fungal states for a more complete understanding of the natural history of this diverse group of unknown endophytic fungal isolates from the living sapwood of wild and planted Hevea (rubber tree) populations. Expand
Chaunopycnis pustulata sp. nov., a new clavicipitalean anamorph producing metabolites that modulate potassium ion channels
Two morphologically similar strains of hyphomycetous fungi, MF5785 and MF5638, produced potent indole diterpene antagonists of the calcium-gated potassium ion channel, Maxi-K, and a diterpene blockerExpand
Taxonomy and Phylogeny of Fungi
This biennial report on fungal taxonomy covers mainly the period 1980–81, following a similar line to the last report by E. Muller (1980). The second author deals with the taxonomy of BasidiomycetesExpand
Microfungi from Antarctic lichens, mosses and vascular plants
Microfungi were isolated from 54 lichen, moss and plant samples collected at two sites (Polish research station 'Arctowski' and Argentinean station 'Jubany') on King George Island, Antarctica. Fifty-Expand
Tolypoalbin, a new tetramic acid from Tolypocladium album TAMA 479
In the course of the investigation on metabolite diversity in hypocrealean fungi, a Tolypocladium strain was found to produce a new tetramic acid derivative (tolypoalbin, 1) and its known congener (F-14329, 2). Expand
Phylogenetic-based nomenclatural proposals for Ophiocordycipitaceae (Hypocreales) with new combinations in Tolypocladium
This work proposes to protect and to suppress names within Ophiocordycipitaceae, and to present taxonomic revisions in the genus Tolypocladium, based on rigorous and extensively sampled molecular phylogenetic analyses. Expand
Tolyprolinol, a new dipeptide from Tolypocladium sp. FKI-7981
A new dipeptide, named tolyprolinol, was isolated from the static culture of a fungus and showed moderate antimalarial activity but did not show cytotoxicity or any other antimicrobial property. Expand
Families of Sordariomycetes
This paper reviews the 107 families of the class Sordariomycetes and provides a modified backbone tree based on phylogenetic analysis of four combined loci, with a maximum five representative taxa from each family, where available. Expand
Intraspecific genetic diversity of Chaunopycnis alba detected by random amplified polymorphic DNA assay
The relatively high similarity coefficient between antarctic isolates in comparison with coefficients between strains from other geographic locations could be related to the recent introduction of this fungus into the antarctica habitat. Expand
