Botryosphaeria dothidea is one of the most commonly reported species in a genus of important pathogens of woody plants. This taxon generally is accepted to represent a species complex, and hence its identity remains unclear. Previous studies either have treated B. dothidea as the valid name for B. ribis and B. berengeriana or argued for them to be separate entities. To add to the confusion, no ex-type cultures are available for either B. dothidea or B. ribis. The aim of the present study… Expand
Confronting the constraints of morphological taxonomy in the Botryosphaeriales
TLDR
The extent of diversity of the Botryosphaeriales revealed in this and other recent studies is expected to reflect that of other undersampled regions and hosts, and illustrates the urgency to find more effective ways to describe species in this, and indeed other, groups of fungi. Expand
Phylogenetic Characterization of Botryosphaeria Strains Associated with Asphondylia Galls on Species of Lamiaceae
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships among strains recovered from Asphondylia galls collected on several species of Lamiaceae in Poland and in Italy and all the currently accepted species in this genus were evaluated, indicating the existence of genetic variation related to the geographic origin in the association with gall midges. Expand
Botryosphaeria species on Quercus spp. and other woody hosts: taxonomy and phylogeny
The genus Botryosphaeria is well known by the species that cause disease in a wide range of plant hosts. The taxonomy of Botryosphaeria and associated anamorph genera as well as of the species hasExpand
Multiple gene genealogies and phenotypic data reveal cryptic species of the Botryosphaeriaceae: a case study on the Neofusicoccum parvum/N. ribis complex.
TLDR
All analyses support the existence of three previously unrecognised, cryptic species within the N. parvum/N. Expand
The Botryosphaeriaceae: genera and species known from culture
TLDR
It seems likely that all of the older taxa linked to the Botryosphaeriaceae, and for which cultures or DNA sequence data are not available, cannot belinked to the species in this family that are known from culture, and will have to be disregarded for future use unless they are epitypified. Expand
A six locus phylogeny reveals high species diversity in Botryosphaeriaceae from California almond
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses of combinations of datasets showed that pooled analyses of all six datasets resulted in the highest number of supported branches, suggesting that addition of more data might yet improve phylogenetic resolution. Expand
Multiple gene sequences delimit Botryosphaeria australis sp. nov. from B. lutea
TLDR
Re-analyses of GenBank data showed that B. australis also occurs on other native Australian hosts, namely a Banksia sp. Expand
Multiple gene sequences delimit Botryosphaeria australis sp. nov. from B. lutea.
TLDR
Re-analyses of GenBank data showed that B. australis also occurs on other native Australian hosts, namely a Banksia sp. Expand
Diversity of Botryosphaeriaceae species associated with conifers in Portugal
TLDR
The results indicate that Neofusicoccum species may be more important as pathogens of conifers than it was previously recognised and many new fungus-host associations were established. Expand
Phylogenetic and morphological re-evaluation of the Botryosphaeria species causing diseases of Mangifera indica.
TLDR
The morphological and molecular results confirmed that the fungi previously identified from mango as species of Dothiorella belong to Fusicoccum and a key is provided to distinguish these species based on anamorph morphology in culture. Expand

Molecular and morphological differentiation of Botryosphaeria dothidea (anamorph Fusicoccum aesculi) from some other fungi with Fusicoccum anamorphs.
TLDR
It is concluded that B. dothidea can be differentiated from these oth- er fungi with Fusicoccum anamorphs by all three tech- niques. Expand
Molecular and morphological differentiation of Botryosphaeria dothidea (anamorph Fusicoccum aesculi) from some other fungi with Fusicoccum anamorphs
Abstract Differentiation of Botryosphaeria species with Fusicoccum anamorphs has depended on recognition of the anamorphs. This has resulted in some confusion in the taxonomy and our understanding ofExpand
Differentiation of Botryosphaeria species and related anamorphic fungi using Inter Simple or Short Sequence Repeat (ISSR) fingerprinting
TLDR
This study has shown that ISSR fingerprinting can be a powerful tool for differentiating closely related filamentous fungi with very similar morphologies or ITS sequences, dissecting species complexes, and justifying newly described species. Expand
Comparison of cultural and morphological characters and ITS sequences in anamorphs of Botryosphaeria and related taxa
TLDR
Anamorphs of 22 strains of botryosphaer- iaceous fungi including Fusicoccum, Diplodia, Sphaeropsis, and Lasiodiplodia theobromae wereared utilizing conidial characters, cultural morphol- ogy, growth rates and nucleotide sequences of the nuclear rDNA internal transcribed spacers ITS 1 and ITS 2. Expand
Relationships among Botryosphaeria species and associated anamorphic fungi inferred from the analyses of ITS and 5.8S rDNA sequences
TLDR
Results indicate that the genus Botryosphaeria is not monophyletic, with B. vaccinii and Phyllostictavaccinii not closely related to other fungi comprising this genus and needs additional study and substantial taxonomic revision. Expand
Botryosphaeria eucalyptorum sp. nov., a new species in the B. dothidea-complex on Eucalyptus in South Africa
TLDR
A new species, Botryosphaeria eucalypto- rum, and its anamorph Fusicoccum eUCalyptorum, are described, although the conidial characteristics of the anamorph are distinct, as well as the sequences of the nrDNA internal tran- scribed spacers ITS1 and ITS2. Expand
Two divergent intragenomic rDNA ITS2 types within a monophyletic lineage of the fungus Fusarium are nonorthologous.
TLDR
The results suggest that the ancestral ITS2 types may have arisen following an ancient interspecific hybridization or gene duplication which occurred prior to the evolutionary radiation of the Gibberella fujikuroi complex and related species of Fusarium. Expand
Primers for amplification of mt SSU rDNA, and a phylogenetic study of Botryosphaeria and associated anamorphic fungi.
TLDR
Minimum evolution, parsimony, and likelihood methods were used for the phylogenetic analyses of mt SSU rDNA sequences from Botryosphaeria species and related taxa, and indicated that Botriesphaeria is not monophyletic and needs additional study and substantial taxonomic revision. Expand
A reassessment of the anamorphic fungus Fusicoccum luteum and description of its teleomorph Botryosphaeria lutea sp nov
TLDR
Although the teleomorph of B. lutea is morphologically indistinguishable from others in the B. dothidea complex, the holomorph is clearly distinguished by a yellow pigment produced in culture, and is described here as new. Expand
Sphaeropsis sapinea and Botryosphaeria dothidea endophytic in Pinus spp. and Eucalyptus spp. in South Africa
TLDR
The enigma of the rapid Ingress of both these fungi In stressed or damaged trees might therefore be explained by their endophytic habit. Expand
