During investigations of freshwater ascomycetes we found one interesting taxon from Aomori (Japan), as well as three additional taxa from North Carolina (USA), which were morphologically similar to Minutisphaera, a recently described freshwater fungus in the Dothideomycetes. The ascomata of all the collections bore dark hair-like structures around the ostiolar region, obovoid to obclavate bitunicate asci, and one to three septate hyaline to brown ascospores with a sheath (in material from Japan… Expand
Minutisphaerales (Dothideomycetes, Ascomycota): a new order of freshwater ascomycetes including a new family, Minutisphaeraceae, and two new species from North Carolina, USA
TLDR
The Minutisphaera clade was strongly supported within the Dothideomycetes with likelihood and Bayesian statistics but did not share phylogenetic affinities with any existing taxonomic group within theDothideometes. Expand
Additions to Lindgomyces (Lindgomycetaceae, Pleosporales, Dothideomycetes), including two new species occurring on submerged wood from North Carolina, USA, with notes on secondary metabolite profiles
TLDR
Two new species of freshwater ascomycetes belonging to the genus Lindgomyces are described and illustrated from submerged wood in North Carolina, USA, and phylogenetic analyses using ITS sequence data support the establishment of the new taxa as separate species within LindGomyces. Expand
Biodiversity of Lignicolous Freshwater Hyphomycetes from China and Thailand and Description of Sixteen Species
TLDR
Based on morphology and multi-gene phylogenetic analyses, Neospadicoides thailandica, Pseudodactylaria aquatica, Sporidesmium nujiangense, Tetraploa th Thailandica, Vamsapriya aquatica and Wongia fusiformis are described as new species. Expand
Minutisphaera aquaticum sp. nov. increases the known diversity of Minutisphaeraceae
New species of freshwater fungi are constantly being introduced following our studies in Asia. In the present paper, Minutisphaera aquaticum sp. nov., is introduced from submerged wood collected inExpand
Refined families of Dothideomycetes: orders and families incertae sedis in Dothideomycetes
TLDR
A refined updated document on orders and families incertae sedis of Dothideomycetes is provided, including an updated description, notes, including figures to represent the morphology, a list of accepted genera, and economic and ecological significances and phylogenetic trees for each order. Expand
Families of Dothideomycetes
TLDR
Dothideomycetes comprise a highly diverse range of fungi characterized mainly by asci with two wall layers (bitunicate asci) and often with fissitunicate dehiscence, and it is hoped that by illustrating types they provide stimulation and interest so that more work is carried out in this remarkable group of fungi. Expand
Acrogenospora (Acrogenosporaceae, Minutisphaerales) Appears to Be a Very Diverse Genus
TLDR
The genus Acrogenospora is far more species rich than originally thought, with nine species found in a small area of Yunnan Province, China, and phylogeny derived from DNA sequence analyses of a combined LSU, SSU, TEF1α, and RPB2 sequence dataset helps support establishment of new species. Expand
Notes for genera: Ascomycota
TLDR
This work is intended to provide the foundation for updating the ascomycete component of the “Without prejudice list of generic names of Fungi” published in 2013, which will be developed into a list of protected generic names. Expand
Acetophenone derivatives from a freshwater fungal isolate of recently described Lindgomyces madisonensis (G416).
TLDR
Madisone, 4'-methoxymadisone and dihydroallovisnaginone were characterized from an organic extract of a recently described Lindgomyces madisonensis culture, which was isolated from submerged wood collected in a stream in North Carolina. Expand
Muyocopron heveae sp. nov. and M. dipterocarpi appears to have host-jumped to rubber
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses of combined LSU and SSU sequence data indicated that the authors' strains cluster in Muyocopron and the new taxon forms a distinct clade as a new species in the genus. Expand

Freshwater ascomycetes: two new species of Lindgomyces (Lindgomycetaceae, Pleosporales, Dothideomycetes) from Japan and USA
TLDR
During independent surveys of freshwater ascomycetes in Japan and USA two new species of Lindgomyces were collected from submerged wood in freshwater and formed a strongly supported clade within the family Lindgomecetaceae (Pleosporales, Dothideomycete) based on analyses of combined SSU and LSU sequence data. Expand
Multi-gene phylogeny and morphotaxonomy of Amniculicola lignicola: a novel freshwater fungus from France and its relationships to the Pleosporales.
TLDR
Morphological characters indicate that Amniculicola belongs in the Pleosporales and this is supported by molecular data, and sequences analyses from three loci suggest that it is closely related to anamorphic fungi, such as Anguillospora longissima, Spirosphaera cupreorufescens, and Repetophragma ontariense. Expand
Aliquandostipitaceae, a new family for two new tropical ascomycetes with unusually wide hyphae and dimorphic ascomata.
TLDR
Two fungi with affinity to the Dothideomycetes, one from Thailand and one from China, are described here in a new genus ALIQUANDOSTIPITE: and included in the new family Aliquandostipitaceae. Expand
Phylogenetic and morphological assessment of two new species of Amniculicola and their allies (Pleosporales)
TLDR
Six species of Amniculicola, which are all from freshwater and mostly from Europe, constitute a well-supported group containing Pleospora rubicunda and Massariosphaeria typhicola, and this putative monophyletic assemblage may represent an aquatic group in the Pleosporales. Expand
Phylogenetic Relationships Among Taxa in the Jahnulales Inferred From 18S and 28S Nuclear Ribosomal DNA Sequences
TLDR
A molecular study carried out using 18S and 28S rDNA sequence data from 15 species representing the four genera in the Jahnulales suggested that the presence of very wide, brown, septate hyphae is an important character defining the J Kahnulales. Expand
Ascoma development and phylogeny of an apothecioid dothideomycete, Catinella olivacea.
TLDR
Detailed phylogenetic analyses of large subunit and small subunit rDNA indicated that this unusual apothecial fungus is, surprisingly, more closely affiliated with the Dothideomycetes than the LeotiomyCetes. Expand
A taxonomic revision and phylogenetic reconstruction of the Jahnulales (Dothideomycetes), and the new family Manglicolaceae
TLDR
The order Jahnulales with 4 teleomorphic genera: Jahnula (15 species), Aliquandostipite (5), Megalohypha (1), Manglicola (2) and the anamorphic genera Brachiosphaera (2), Speiropsis (9), Xylomyces (8), amounting to a total of 42 species, is reviewed and nomenclatural changes are proposed. Expand
The molecular phylogeny of freshwater Dothideomycetes
TLDR
Results indicated that this ecological group is not monophyletic and all the freshwater taxa, except three aeroaquatic Tubeufiaceae, occur in Pleosporomycetidae as opposed to DothideomyCetidae, and suggested that freshwater Dothides are related to terrestrial taxa and have adapted to freshwater habitats numerous times.
