Dragmacidon reticulatum is a marine sponge of wide occurrence in the Eastern and Western Atlantic. Little is known about D. reticulatum fungal diversity. Filamentous fungi recovered from D. reticulatum were assessed in the present study using a polyphasic taxonomic approach, including classical morphology, molecular biology and MALDI-TOF ICMS. Ninety-eight fungal strains were isolated from two D. reticulatum samples by using six different culture media, which were identified up to the genus… 
The culturable mycobiota associated with three Atlantic sponges, including two new species: Thelebolus balaustiformis and T. spongiae
TLDR
Several species isolated and identified in this work, already known in terrestrial environment, were first reported in marine ecosystems and in association with sponges, demonstrating that oceans are an untapped source of biodiversity.
Fungi found in Mediterranean and North Sea sponges: how specific are they?
Fungi and other eukaryotes represent one of the last frontiers of microbial diversity in the sponge holobiont. In this study we employed pyrosequencing of 18S ribosomal RNA gene amplicons containing
Fungal diversity of mangrove-associated sponges from New Washington, Aklan, Philippines
TLDR
The results of the study suggest host-preference by various fungal taxa and the development of fungi on these hosts appeared to be strongly influenced by the characteristics or nature of the immediate environment.
A New record of four Penicillium species isolated from Agarum clathratum in Korea
TLDR
Agarum clathratum samples that collected from 13 sites along the mid-east coast of Korea in summer were isolated and Penicillium species were identified, four of which are new species records to Korea and provided morphological characteristics of each strain.
Phylogenetic Diversity of Fungi in the Sea including the Opisthosporidia
TLDR
This chapter introduces the phylogenetic diversity of the marine taxa at the basal lineages of fungi with the emphasis on the ascomycetous classes Dothideomycetes and SordariomycETes, where most marine ascomys are referred to.
Marine Fungi from the Sponge Grantia compressa: Biodiversity, Chemodiversity, and Biotechnological Potential
TLDR
The aim of this work was to isolate and identify fungi associated with the Atlantic sponge Grantia compressa, to study the fungal metabolites by applying the OSMAC approach, and to test fungal compounds for their antimicrobial activities.
Molecular diversity of fungal and bacterial communities in the marine sponge Dragmacidon reticulatum
TLDR
This is the first report related to the molecular analyses of fungal and bacterial communities by cultivation‐independent approaches in the marine sponges D. reticulatum and suggests that the sampled clones covered the fungal diversity in the sponge samples studied, while for the bacterial community additional sampling would be necessary for saturation.
Biatriospora (Ascomycota: Pleosporales) is an ecologically diverse genus including facultative marine fungi and endophytes with biotechnological potential
TLDR
Ecological data gathered and the inclusion of sequences deposited in public databases show that Biatriospora contains species that are endophytes of angiosperms in temperate and tropical regions as well as species that live in marine or estuarine environments.
Isolation and characterization of bioactive fungi from shark Carcharodon carcharias’ gill with biopharmaceutical prospects
TLDR
The results detail the broad range of bioactive fungi found in a shark’s gills, revealing their biopharmaceutical potential.
The culturable mycobiota associated with the Mediterranean sponges Aplysina cavernicola, Crambe crambe and Phorbas tenacior.
TLDR
The mini-satellite analysis confirmed the uniqueness of the mycobiota of each sponge, leading to think that the sponge, with its metabolome, may shape the microbial community.

TLDR
It is advocated that Psammocinia, and other sponge genera, may be a prime niche for discovering new fungal species as well as novel anti-fungal compounds from fungal sources.
Molecular taxonomy, origins and evolution of freshwater ascomycetes
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of the small subunit ribosomal DNA (18S rDNA) sequences coupled with bayesian relaxed-clock methods are used to date the origin of freshwater fungi and also test their relationships with their terrestrial counterparts, indicating that freshwater ascomycetes have evolved from terrestrial fungi and appear to occur in only three classes.

TLDR
This review will highlight areas that warrant further investigation, including surveys for marine fungi in Africa, artic waters and south America, more detailed studies of their physiology and biochemistry, and to determine the marine origin of so called “marine derived” fungi.
