During a recent collection trip to Barro Colorado Island, Panama, two species belonging to genus Ascopolyporus (Clavicipitaceae, Hypocreales) were collected. Species of Ascopolyporus are epibionts of their bamboo (Poaceae) host and long thought to be biotrophs of their plant hosts. However, based on morphological observations and phylogenetic evidence using large subunit ribosomal DNA data, we propose that genus Ascopolyporus is likely composed of pathogens of scale insects (Coccoideae… 
Is Hyperdermium Congeneric with Ascopolyporus? Phylogenetic Relationships of Ascopolyporus spp. (Cordycipitaceae, Hypocreales) and a New Genus Neohyperdermium on Scale Insects in Thailand
TLDR
During surveys of insect pathogenic fungi in Thailand, fungi associated with scale insects and plants were found to represent five new species of the genus Ascopolyporus in Cordycipitaceae, suggesting that Hyperdermium is congeneric with Ascopolicporus.
Regiocrella, a new entomopathogenic genus with a pycnidial anamorph and its phylogenetic placement in the Clavicipitaceae.
TLDR
Regiocrella is shown to be closely related to the scale insect pathogen Hypocrella and the plant-associated genera Balansia, Claviceps, Epichlöe, Myriogenospora and Neoclaviceps and to have multiple evolutionary origins within the Clavicipitaceae.
Phylogenetic classification of Cordyceps and the clavicipitaceous fungi
TLDR
Most diagnostic characters used in current classifications of Cordyceps were not supported as being phylogenetically informative; the characters that were most consistent with the phylogeny were texture, pigmentation and morphology of stromata.
Ophiocordyceps flavida sp. nov. (Ophiocordycipitaceae), a new species from Thailand associated with Pseudogibellula formicarum (Cordycipitaceae), and their bioactive secondary metabolites
TLDR
One novel species is described, Ophiocordyceps flavida , and a new record of Pseudogibellula formicarum for Thailand is found to occur simultaneously with O. flavida, and secondary metabolites of both fungi were investigated for the first time.
Host jumping onto close relatives and across kingdoms by Tyrannicordyceps (Clavicipitaceae) gen. nov. and Ustilaginoidea_(Clavicipitaceae).
TLDR
The host habitat hypothesis best explains the dynamic evolution of host affiliations seen in Clavicipitaceae and throughout Hypocreales.
Molecular phylogeny and morphology reveal cryptic species in Blackwellomyces and Cordyceps (Cordycipitaceae) from Thailand
Nine species in Cordyceps sensu lato producing orange to red stromata were discovered during diversity surveys of arthropod-pathogenic fungi in Thailand. The phylogenetic analyses of combined ITS,
Gelatinomyces siamensis gen. sp. nov. (Ascomycota, Leotiomycetes, incertae sedis) on bamboo in Thailand
TLDR
The fungus presents as a ping-pong ball-sized and golf ball-like gelatinous ascostroma, which has numerous ascospores, are thick-walled, and arise on discoid apothecia which are aggregated and clustered to form the spherical gelatinous structures.
A phylogenetically-based nomenclature for Cordycipitaceae (Hypocreales)
TLDR
A molecular phylogenetic investigation of Cordycipitaceae is presented that enables identification of competing names in this family, and provides the basis upon which these names can be maintained or suppressed.
Tyrannicordyceps sclerotium ( Kobayasi ) Kepler & Spatafora comb . nov — Mycobank number : 563732 Basionym : Cordyceps sclerotium Kobayasi
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses and ancestral character state reconstructions support an origin of arthropod pathogens near the Jurassic – Cretaceous boundary, essentially concurrent with the rise of angiosperms and the modern orders of phytophagous insects.
An analysis of ergot alkaloids in the Clavicipitaceae (Hypocreales, Ascomycota) and ecological implications
TLDR
This is the first study that links ergot alkaloid production in the Clavicipitaceae with plant biotrophy and offers the hypothesis that the abundance of nutrients in living plants may permit the plantBiotrophic forms to produce ergotalkaloids for defensive purposes.

Hyperdermium: a new clavicipitalean genus for some tropical epibionts of dicotyledonous plants
TLDR
The morphological characteristics of two tropical clavicipitalean fungi on species of the plant family Asteraceae were examined, found to be superficial on the stems of living plants but early stages of infection involve necrotrophy of scale insects.
Relationship of the genusCordyceps and related genera, based on parsimony and spectral analysis of partial 18S and 28S ribosomal gene sequences
TLDR
A molecular phylogenetic study of selected species of three sub-genera of the genusCordyceps was undertaken, along with representatives of the generaAkanthomyces, Aschersonia, Gibellula, Hymenostilbe, Hypocrella, Nomuraea andTorrubiella, to examine their inter-relationship, indicating that the Clavicipitaceae form a monophyletic group within the Hypocreales.

Colonization of Corn, Zea mays, by the Entomopathogenic Fungus Beauveria bassiana
TLDR
Virulency bioassays demonstrate that B. bassiana does not lose virulence toward the European corn borer, Ostrinia nubilalis, once it colonizes corn, and suggests possibilities for biological control, including the use of indigenous fungal inocula as insecticides.

TLDR
Molecular genetic techniques were applied to the endophytes of tall fescue and other grasses, bringing us closer to the prospect of reducing or eliminating their toxicosis to livestock while continuing to employ their bioprotective qualities.

Rapid genetic identification and mapping of enzymatically amplified ribosomal DNA from several Cryptococcus species
TLDR
A novel approach that uses the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for rapid simplified restriction typing and mapping of DNA from many different isolates is described, which ought to have wide applicability for clinical detection and other studies.
Toxicity and occurrence of Balansia on grasses from toxic fescue pastures.
TLDR
Thin-layer chromatography and ultraviolet absorption data indicated that in submerged culture the fungus produced compounds with the indole or ergoline nucleus.
Effect of Lolium endophyte fungus infections on survival of larval Argentine stem weevil
TLDR
Survival of Argentine stem weevil from eggs to fourth instar larvae was compared in endophyte-infected and endophytes-free ryegrass in the screenhouse and results were discussed in relation to larval survival and damage in the field.

TLDR
A new mathematical method for estimating the number of transitional and transversional substitutions per site, as well as the total number of nucleotide substitutions, suggested that the transition/transversion ratio for the entire control region was approximately 15 and nearly the same for the two species.
