The autoecious macrocyclic life cycle of Nothoravenelia japonica on Flueggea suffruticosa was clarified by inoculations. [...] Key Result Phylogenetic analyses showed that this rust fungus is closely related to one group of Phakopsora, but far from a second group. Therefore, it is suggested that the genus Phakopsora should be divided into two genera. The second group is treated as new genus Neophysopella based on morphological and phylogenetical similarities and host relations.Expand

Life cycle and taxonomy of Melampsora abietis-populi in China and its phylogenetic position in Melampsora on Populus
The phylogenetic position of this species within Melampsora is clarified for the first time and M. nujiangensis reported on Populus yunnanensis is treated as a synonym of M. abietis-populi. Expand
Gymnosporangium species on Malus: species delineation, diversity and host alternation
A new family, Gymnosporangiaceae, is proposed to accommodate the genus Gymnos porangium, and 22 Gymnos Porangium species parasitic on Malus species are recognized, of which G. nelsonii, G. yamadae are proposed to stabilize the use of names. Expand
Contribution to rust flora in China I, tremendous diversity from natural reserves and parks
34 new species are formally described and three new families Endoraeciaceae, Neophysopellaceae and Uromycladiaceae are proposed based on their morphological distinctions, phylogenetic independences and divergent times in Pucciniales. Expand
Taxonomy of Southeast Asian-Australasian grapevine leaf rust fungus and its close relatives
Molecular phylogenetic analyses using the internal transcribed spacer 2 and the large-subunit rRNA gene and morphological examinations confirmed that the GLR fungus distributed in Southeast Asia and Australasia is distinct from Neophysopella species involved in GLRs in East Asia and the Americas.

Fungal Systematics and Evolution
Our understanding of the systematics of red yeasts has greatly improved with the availability of sequence data and it is now clear that the majority of these fungi belong to three different classesExpand


Life cycle of Aecidium klugkistianum on Ligustrum and its new combination, Puccinia klugkistiana
During the survey of rust fungi in Jilin Province, China, it is found Ligustrum obtusifolium (Oleaceae) heavily infected with a rust fungus, Aecidium klugkistianum, which produces uredinial and telial stages on Cleistogenes hackelii (Gramineae). Expand
Two new species of Pucciniastrum producing dimorphic sori and spores from northeast of China
During field surveys for rust fungi in northeast of China, rust specimens on Galium, Aster, and Kalimeris were found and they were different to Pucciniastrum species previously reported from the same host genera, so two new species are described as P. coronisporum and P. verruculosum, respectively. Expand
Life-cycle and morphology of Phakopsora meliosmae (Uredinales)
From morphological observations with the light and scanning electron microscopes, it was found that large knobs with small papillae are present on thesurface of the aeciospores, and that the inner surface of the peridial cells is smooth to punctate. Expand
Taxonomy of two host specialized Phakopsora populations on Meliosma in Japan
Cross inoculations using basidiospores and aeciospores confirmed the macrocyclic, autoecious nature of the life cycle in both rust populations and showed that the two populations were distinct in their host specificity. Expand
Pucciniales on Annona (Annonaceae) with special focus on the genus Phakopsora
The molecular as well as the morphologic investigations indicated that the genus Batistopsora is synonymous with Phakopsora, and the new species, Aecidium verannonae, has to be described for the AECidium species, which occurs really on Annona. Expand
Toward resolving family-level relationships in rust fungi (Uredinales)
It is concluded that morphology alone is a poor predictor of rust relationships at most levels and host selection, on the other hand, has played a significant role in rust evolution. Expand
Phakopsora myrtacearum sp. nov., a newly described rust (Pucciniales) on eucalypts in eastern and southern Africa
Phakopsora myrtacearum has been found on three species of Eucalyptus in Kenya, Mozambique and South Africa, and it may have future negative implications for commercial forestry in these areas. Expand
Phakopsora hornotina, an additional autoecious rust species on Meliosma in the Philippines and the Ryukyu Islands, Japan.
Experimental inoculations with basidiospores and aeciospores proved the autoecious, macrocyclic life cycle of the rust fungus, and a new holomorph name, Phakopsora hornotina, was proposed for this fungus. Expand
Taxonomy of the Phakopsora ampelopsidis species complex on vitaceous hosts in Asia including a new species, P. euvitis
AbstractA grape leaf rust fungus, Phakopsora ampelopsidis, distributed in Japan consisted of three populations differing in their life cycle and host specificity. One population forms the uredinial...
Phylogeny and taxonomy of the Asian grapevine leaf rust fungus, Phakopsora euvitis, and its allies (Uredinales)
The results confirm the phylogenetic distinctness of P. euvitis, P. ampelopsidis, autoecious P. meliosmae and M. tenuis, and an unconnected Aecidium on Meliosma are closely allied. Expand
