The systematics of the ascomycete genera Apiorhynchostoma, Endoxyla and Pseudovalsaria are reevaluated based on the comparison of cultural characteristics, teleomorph morphology and DNA sequence data. Analyses of sequences of the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) of the ribosomal DNA operon and the large subunit (LSU) of the nuclear ribosomal DNA gene resolve Boliniales as a robustly supported lineage comprising Apiorhynchostoma, Camarops, Camaropella, Cornipulvina, Endoxyla and Pseudovalsaria… 

Introducing the Rhamphoriaceae, fam. nov. (Sordariomycetes), two new genera, and new life histories for taxa with Phaeoisaria- and Idriella-like anamorphs

Two new genera, Rhamphoriopsis and Xylolentia, are described for lignicolous perithecial ascomycetes occurring in terrestrial habitats and are introduced as the family Rhampingoriaceae and strongly supported by Bayesian and maximum likelihood methods.

Thyridium revised: Synonymisation of Phialemoniopsis under Thyridium and establishment of a new order, Thyridiales

The genus Thyridium, previously known as a saprobic or hemibiotrophic ascomycete on various plants, was revised taxonomically and phylogenetically and Phialemoniopsis, a genus encompassing medically important species, is synonymised with Thyridiaceae based on molecular evidence and morphological similarities in their asexual characters.

Phylogeny of the order Phyllachorales (Ascomycota, Sordariomycetes): among and within order relationships based on five molecular loci

Maximum Likelihood ancestral state reconstructions indicate that the ancestor of Phyllachorales had a monocotyledonous host plant, immersed perithecia, and a black stroma, and Alternative states of these characters evolved multiple times independently within the order.

Delimitation and phylogeny of Dictyochaeta, and introduction of Achrochaeta and Tubulicolla, genera nova

It was revealed that D. fuegiana, the type species, is a complex of three distinct species including D. querna and the newly described D. stratosa, and a new genus Tubulicolla is introduced.

South Florida microfungi: a new species of Taeniolella (anamorphic Sordariomycetes) isolated from cabbage palm

Phylogenetic analyses based on partial nuclear ribosomal large subunit (LSU) and internal transcribed spacer sequence data suggest the fungus is distinct from other Taeniolella species and possess affinities with members of Sordariomycetidae (Ascomycota) but its ordinal or familial position within the subclass remains uncertain.

Morpho-molecular characterization of microfungi associated with marine based habitats

Two new genera, 37 new species and 15 new host records are described in the present study and it is demonstrated how marine based substrates, including sand dunes, are fascinating substrates for discovering novel taxa.

Taxonomic Studies of Some often Over-Looked Diaporthomycetidae and Sordariomycetidae

The main objective in this study is to revise and update the taxonomy of several well-known old and poorly studied species whose classification are still obscure and establish a new genus Neoschizothecium based on phylogenetic analysis.

Families of Sordariomycetes

This paper reviews the 107 families of the class Sordariomycetes and provides a modified backbone tree based on phylogenetic analysis of four combined loci, with a maximum five representative taxa from each family, where available.

Towards a natural classification and backbone tree for Sordariomycetes

An updated outline of the Sordariomycetes and a backbone tree incorporating asexual and sexual genera in the class are provided and new links between sexual and asexual genera and thus synonymies are provided.



An overview of the systematics of the Sordariomycetes based on a four-gene phylogeny.

The phylogenetic relationship among 106 taxa from 12 orders out of 16 in the Sordariomycetes was investigated based on four nuclear loci, and most of the orders are recognized as monophyletic groups.


The pyrenomycete genus Endoxyla (Ascomycotina, Clypeosphaeriaceae) is revised based on the examination of type and authentic material and a new combination Ceratostomella hyalostoma is proposed.

Monilochaetes and allied genera of the Glomerellales, and a reconsideration of families in the Microascales

We examined the phylogenetic relationships of two species that mimic Chaetosphaeria in teleomorph and anamorph morphologies, Chaetosphaeria tulasneorum with a Cylindrotrichum anamorph and

Bellojisia, a new sordariaceous genus for Jobellisia rhynchostoma and a description of Jobellisiaceae fam. nov.

The phylogenetic analyses of partial nucLSU rDNA sequence data of three Jobellisia species indicate that J. rhynchostoma is distinct from the core species of JobellIsia, and morphological and molecular data suggest Corylomyces selenosporus of the Sordariales is the closest relative.

Molecular systematics of Ceratostomella sensu lato and morphologically similar fungi

Ceratostomella, Lentomitella and Xylomelasma reside within a large unsupported clade consisting of members the Ophiostomatales, the freshwater Annulatascaceae and a group of nonstromatic, terrestrial taxa.

New genera in the Calosphaeriales: Togniniella and its anamorph Phaeocrella, and Calosphaeriophora as anamorph of Calosphaeria

During a survey of perithecial ascomycetes in New Zealand, two collections of a Togninia-like fungus were made on decayed wood and a Phaeoacremonium-like anamorph was found, confirming that the New Zealand fungus represents a new genus very close to Calosphaeria.

A five-gene phylogeny of Pezizomycotina.

Pezizomycotina is the largest subphylum of Ascomycota and includes the vast majority of filamentous, ascoma-producing species, and the seven remaining classes formed a monophyletic group that corresponds to Leotiomyceta.
