Sterigmatobotrys macrocarpa is a conspicuous, lignicolous, dematiaceous hyphomycete with macronematous, penicillate conidiophores with branches or metulae arising from the apex of the stipe, terminating with cylindrical, elongated conidiogenous cells producing conidia in a holoblastic manner. The discovery of its teleomorph is documented here based on perithecial ascomata associated with fertile conidiophores of S. macrocarpa on a specimen collected in the Czech Republic; an identical anamorph…

South Florida microfungi: a new species of Taeniolella (anamorphic Sordariomycetes) isolated from cabbage palm
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses based on partial nuclear ribosomal large subunit (LSU) and internal transcribed spacer sequence data suggest the fungus is distinct from other Taeniolella species and possess affinities with members of Sordariomycetidae (Ascomycota) but its ordinal or familial position within the subclass remains uncertain.
Newly recognised lineages of perithecial ascomycetes: the new orders Conioscyphales and Pleurotheciales
TLDR
Two monophyletic clades closely related to the Savoryellales, formed by five species of Conioscypha and a second clade containing several genera of uncertain taxonomic status centred on Pleurothecium, represent two distinct taxonomic groups at the ordinal systematic rank.
The evolution of the Ascomycota new insights from Mesozoic and Cenozoic amber fossils
TLDR
The diversification of the ascomycetes started in the Cambrian followed by a continuous diversification throughout the Phanerozoic that was likely unaffected by mass extinctions and suggests that the ecological diversity within each lineages ensured that at least some taxa of each group were able to survive global crises and rapidly recovered.
Phylogenetic classification of Pleurothecium and Pleurotheciella gen. nov. and its dactylaria-like anamorph (Sordariomycetes) based on nuclear ribosomal and protein-coding genes
TLDR
Phylogenetic study of the 12 strains that represent Pleurothecium recurvatum revealed four that grouped apart from the core of the species, which form a monophyletic well supported clade in both phylogenies.
Molecular analyses uncover the phylogenetic placement of the lichenized hyphomycetous genus Cheiromycina
TLDR
The phylogenetic placement of Cheiromycina was inferred using three loci (nuSSU, nuLSU, and mtSSU) representing C. flabelliformis, the type species for the genus, where members formed a monophyletic clade sister to the genera Savoronala and Malmidea.
Emendation of the genus Bactrodesmiastrum (Sordariomycetes) and description of Bactrodesmiastrum monilioides sp. nov. from plant debris in Spain
TLDR
Analysis of the ITS region and D1/D2 domains of the LSU of rDNA sequences confirms the placement of this fungus in Bactrodesmiastrum (Sordariomycetes), and an emended description of the genus is provided to accommodate the novel species.

Teleomorph of Rhodoveronaea (Sordariomycetidae) discovered and reevaluation of Pleurophragmium
TLDR
An undescribed teleomorph was discovered for Rhodoveronaea, a previously known anamorph genus with the single species R. varioseptata characterized by pigmented, septate conidia and holoblastic-denticulate conidiogenesis, which is segregated from the morphologically similar genera Lentomitella and Ceratosphaeria.
Teleomorph-anamorph connections: the new pyrenomycetous genus Carpoligna and its Pleurothecium anamorph
TLDR
Parsimony and maximum likelihood analyses of the large subunit nuclear-encoded ribo- somal DNA from representative taxa of eight asco- mycetous orders show this ascomycete as a monophy- letic group distinct from Chaetosphaeria, and the implications of the phylogenetic relationships of Carpoligna in the practical identification of morphologically similar pyrenomycetes are discussed.
Conioscyphascus, a new ascomycetous genus for holomorphs with Conioscypha anamorphs
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses of alignments of large- and small-subunit rDNA sequences suggest a strongly supported, close relationship among the three Conioscypha species sampled and Ascotaiwania and Carpoligna, but the family and order relationships of this clade remain uncertain.
CASTOR, POLLUX AND LIFE HISTORIES OF FUNGI
TLDR
The literature on teleomorph-anamorph connections in the Orbiliaceae and the position of the family in the Leotiales is reviewed andCharacteristics of the anamorphs are discussed and illustrated andalyses of the ITS region of several of the isolates indicate that there are several well-supported clades within the Orbilaceae.
An overview of the systematics of the Sordariomycetes based on a four-gene phylogeny.
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationship among 106 taxa from 12 orders out of 16 in the Sordariomycetes was investigated based on four nuclear loci, and most of the orders are recognized as monophyletic groups.
Phylogenetic and morphotaxonomic revision of Ramichloridium and allied genera
TLDR
The phylogeny of the genera Periconiella, Ramichloridium, Rhinocladiella and Veronaea was explored by means of partial sequences of the 28S (LSU) rRNA gene and the ITS region and a new genus, Radulidium, is erected.
Systematics of the genus Chaetosphaeria and its allied genera: morphological and phylogenetic diversity in north temperate and neotropical taxa.
TLDR
This study aimed to assess the value and significance of morphological characters in resolving phylogenetic relationships in Chaetosphaeria and its allied genera and revealed two major lineages.
Phylogeny of Chaetosphaeria and its anamorphs based on morphological and molecular data
TLDR
The morphology-based classification of Chaetosphaeria is compared with results from analyses of molecular data and the taxonomic value of morphological characters observed in teleomorphs and dematiaceous hyphomycetous anamorphs is discussed in the light of the results of these analyses.
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.
