Two new genera are established in the Dothideomycetes based on morphological and molecular data (SSU and LSU nuclear ribosomal sequences) to accommodate four ascomycete species collected from woody debris submerged in freshwater habitats. The genus Minutisphaera is represented by a single species, M. fimbriatispora, which was collected from freshwater habitats in temperate forests in North America. It has small, superficial, brown, subglobose, papillate pseudothecia with dark, irregularly… 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
Freshwater ascomycetes: Natipusillaceae, a new family of tropical fungi, including Natipusilla bellaspora sp. nov. from the Peruvian Amazon
TLDR
Based on the unique morphological characters of taxa in Natipusilla and results of previous molecular phylogenetic analyses with other members of the Dothideomycetes,Natipusillaceae fam. Expand
Freshwater Ascomycetes: Minutisphaera (Dothideomycetes) revisited, including one new species from Japan
TLDR
A new species of Minutisphaera is described and illustrated based on maximum likelihood and Bayesian analyses of combined 18S and 28S nrDNA and separate ITS sequences, as well as examination of morphology, and the phylogeny inferred from the internal transcribed spacer region suggested that two out of the three North Carolina collections may be novel and perhaps cryptic species within Minut isphaera. Expand
Zeloasperisporiales ord. nov., and Two New Species of Zeloasperisporium
TLDR
A new order, Zeloasperisporiales is introduced to accommodate the family Zelo Jasperisporiaceae, an epiphytic genus that forms small black dots on the surface of living or dead fallen leaves, although it rarely causes any damage to the host. Expand
Taxonomic novelties of hysteriform Dothideomycetes
TLDR
A new order, Gloniales, is introduced to accommodate Glonium, a new family, Acrogenosporaceae, to accommodate Acrogensospora, five new species (Hysterium doimaeensis, H. thailandica, Hysterobrevium hakeae, Hy. rosae and Mytilinidion didymospora) and a new combination (Purpurepithecium minus).

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
A reappraisal of Microthyriaceae
TLDR
The phylogenetic analysis underscores the high genetic diversity for thyriotheciate species and there is no clear clade that can be well defined as Microthyriales. 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.

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

The polyphyletic nature of Pleosporales: an example from Massariosphaeria based on rDNA and RBP2 gene phylogenies.
TLDR
Multigene phylogenies revealed that Massariosphaeria is not monophyletic and results are in disagreement with existing morphological-based classification schemes, and refute the monophyly of Kirschsteiniothelia, Massarina, Melanomma, and Pleospora and support previous phylogenetic hypotheses thatMelanommataceae is polyphyletic.

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.
