Four Durotheca-like taxa have been collected from Guizhou Province, China. ITS, RPB2, LSU, and β-tubulin loci sequences were amplified and analyzed using maximum likelihood and Bayesian analyses. Phylogenetic analyses of a combined ITS, LSU, RPB2, and β-tubulin gene dataset showed that our strains were species of Durotheca. Both morphological and molecular evidence confirmed that two are new species, Durotheca crateriformis and Durotheca guizhouensis, while Durotheca eurima (≡ Theissenia eurima… 

A taxonomic study of Nemania from China, with six new species

Morphological and multi-gene phylogenetic analyses, based on combined ITS, α-actin, rpb2 and β-tubulin sequences, confirmed that six Nemania species collected from Yunnan, Guizhou and Hainan Provinces in China are new to science.

Three new species of Hypoxylon and new records of Xylariales from Panama

Three new species of Hypoxylon (Hypoxylaceae, Xylariales) are described based on a polyphasic approach that included morphological examination, molecular phylogeny and chemotaxonomic studies of specimens collected in Panama, with the number of species reported from Panama reported to 103 and 18.

New species and records of Neomassaria, Oxydothis and Roussoella (Pezizomycotina, Ascomycota) associated with palm and bamboo from China

Multi-gene phylogenetic analyses based on combined ITS, LSU, SSU, rpb2 and tef1 loci confirmed that two micro fungi gathered from bamboo and palm in Guizhou Province, China are new geographical records for China and show that Oxydothis fortunei is closely related to O. inaequalis.

Insight into the Systematics of Microfungi Colonizing Dead Woody Twigs of Dodonaea viscosa in Honghe (China)

Two new genera and four new species in three orders of Dothideomycetes gathered from dead twigs of Dodonaea viscosa in Honghe, China are presented, suggesting high fungal diversity in the region and the existence of numerous species awaiting discovery.

Morpho-molecular characterisation of Arecophila, with A.australis and A.clypeata sp. nov. and A.miscanthi comb. nov.

Three arecophila-like fungal samples collected on dead culms of gramineous plants in China reveal the phylogeny of Cainiaceae and introduce new species, including Arecophilaaustralis sp.

Pre-proof publication

Refined families of Sordariomycetes

This treatment of the class Sordariomycetes provides up-to-date DNA based phylogenies for 45 orders and 163 families and provides general descriptions and illustrate the type genus or another genus, where the placement has generally been confirmed with molecular data.

Multi-Gene Phylogeny and Taxonomy of Hypoxylon (Hypoxylaceae, Ascomycota) from China

Four new species of Hypoxylon were discovered from Hainan Tropical Rainforest National Park of China based on a combination of morphological characteristics and molecular data, andylogenetic analyses inferred from ITS, RPB2, LSU, and β-tubulin sequences confirmed that the four new species are distinct within the genusHypoxylon.

Morpho-molecular characterization of microfungi associated with marine based habitats

Two new genera, 37 new species and 15 new host records are described in the present study and it is demonstrated how marine based substrates, including sand dunes, are fascinating substrates for discovering novel taxa.

Two new species of the genus Collodiscula (Xylariaceae) from China

Two species similar to Collodiscula were found on bamboo during studies of Xylariaceae in Guizhou Province, China and are introduced in this paper with micrographs and descriptions and compared with C. japonica.

Three new Xylaria species from southwestern Europe

Three undescribed European species of Xylaria are recognized from new combinations of anamorphic and teleomorphic characters. Their phylogenetic affinities are revealed by a 5.8S/ITS nrDNA analysis.

Theissenia reconsidered, including molecular phylogeny of the type species T. pyrenocrata and a new genus Durotheca (Xylariaceae, Ascomycota)

The genus Durotheca is introduced with D. depressa sp. nov., as type. Hypoxylon comedens is transferred to Durotheca, based on its morphology with further evidence from molecular phylogenetic

Phylogenetic relationships of five genera of Xylariales and Rosasphaeria gen. nov. (Hypocreales)

The phylogenetic relationships of two fungi forming superficial stromata are clarified: Collodiscula japonica belongs to the Xylariaceae, while Melogramma campylosporum may currently be interpreted as representing a family of its own, the Melogrammataceae.

Phylogenetic and chemotaxonomic resolution of the genus Annulohypoxylon (Xylariaceae) including four new species

A phylogenetic β-tubulin tree in conjunction with stromatal HPLC profiles clearly shows that Annulohypoxylon comprises two distinct lineages, and the A. cohaerens/multiforme group might eventually warrant segregation into a new genus as further molecular data become available.

A polyphasic taxonomy of Daldinia (Xylariaceae)1

Interestingly, the current study revealed for the first time that fungal secondary metabolite profiles can have taxonomic value beyond the species rank and even coincide with phylogenetic data.

New Hypoxylon species from Martinique and new evidence on the molecular phylogeny of Hypoxylon based on ITS rDNA and β-tubulin data

It is concluded that the right gene (or multi-gene genealogies) to reflect the phylogeny and evolution of Hypoxylon still remains to be found, and it is recommended that the application of polyphasic taxonomic concepts should be continued in taxonomic studies ofHypoxylon.

Molecular phylogenetic studies within the Xylariaceae based on ribosomal DNA sequences

The phylogenetic reconstructions showed a reasonable degree of correlation between the sequence data and the proposed morphological classification schemes only for some genera within the family, suggesting the need for further revision of the generic concepts and diagnostic characters within the Xylariaceae.

Chemotaxonomic and phylogenetic studies of Thamnomyces (Xylariaceae)

It is concluded that Thamnomyces, Daldinia, and Phylacia are derived from the same evolutionary lineage, despite these genera differing drastically in their stromatal morphology and anatomy.
