A new species of Kumanasamuha is described and illustrated from axenic single-spore isolates of Chorioactis geaster. The characteristics of conidia and hyphae are the same as the dematiaceous hyphomycete observed on decayed trunks of Quercus spp., where C. geaster appeared in the field in Japan. Our results indicated that C. geaster in situ colonizes decayed trunks of Quercus spp. 
Donadinia echinacea and Plectania sichuanensis, two novel species of Sarcosomataceae from southwestern China
TLDR
Two new species, Donadinia echinacea and Plectania sichuanensis, are described based on morphological and phylogenetic analyses and an updated two locus phylogeny of Sarcosomataceae is provided.
First collection of the asexual state of Trichaleurina javanica from nature and the placement of Kumanasamuha
TLDR
The comparison between naturally growing and in vitro grown cultures showed that the in vitro cultured anamorph had larger conidiogenous cells, larger conidia, and longer and more numerous lateral fertile branches compared to the fungus in nature.
Diversity of fungal endophytes in the semi evergreen vine thickets of the southern Brigalow Belt bioregion and their production of antimicrobial secondary metabolites.
TLDR
The results of this study indicate that Semi-evergreen vine thickets (SEVT) harbour a vast storehouse of novel and medicinally significant endophytic fungi.
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.
2 Pezizomycotina: Pezizomycetes0 Pezizomycetes, Orbiliomycetes0 Orbiliomycetes
TLDR
Of note in the class is the multiple origin of hypogeous taxa, nearly all of which occur within clades that are known to be mycorrhizal.

UNUSUAL ASCOSPORE GERMINATION IN HYPOXYLON FRAGIFORME : FIRST SEPS IN THE ESTABLISHMENT OF AN ENDOPHYTIC SYMBIOSIS
TLDR
This sophisticated recognition mechanism indicates a high degree of specialization of H. fragiforme to its endophytic symbiosis with beech trees and postulates the existence of a host-derived, diffusible, specific factor eliciting those changes.

TLDR
The origin of various forms of ascomata, including hypogeous forms (truffles and truffle-like), epigeous cleistothecia, simple reduced apothecia and highly elaborate, stipitate forms (helvelloid and morchelloid), are discussed.
