Ophiostoma species have diverse morphological features and are found in a large variety of ecological niches. Many different classification schemes have been applied to these fungi in the past based on teleomorph and anamorph features. More recently, studies based on DNA sequence comparisions have shown that Ophiostoma consists of different phylogenetic groups, but the data have not been sufficient to define clear monophyletic lineages represented by practical taxonomic units. We used DNA… Expand
Two new Leptographium spp. reveal an emerging complex of hardwood-infecting species in the Ophiostomatales
TLDR
During a survey of ophiostomatoid fungi on various tree species in Norway and Poland, three unusual species, which fit the broader morphological description of Leptographium spp. Expand
Three new Leptographium spp. (Ophiostomatales) infecting hardwood trees in Norway and Poland
TLDR
During a survey of ophiostomatoid fungi on various hardwood tree species in Norway and Poland, three unusual species, which fit in the broader morphological description of Leptographium spp. Expand
Multi-gene phylogeny for Ophiostoma spp. reveals two new species from Protea infructescences
TLDR
Molecular data suggest that adaptation to the Protea infructescence niche by Ophiostoma spp. Expand
Three new species of Ophiostomatales from Nothofagus in Patagonia
TLDR
The Ophiostomatales (Ascomycota) include mainly insect and mite-associated fungi, the majority of which are found on trees, and their occurrence on native Nothofagus trees in the Patagonian Andes of Argentina is considered. Expand
Phylogenetic re-evaluation of the Grosmannia penicillata complex (Ascomycota, Ophiostomatales), with the description of five new species from China and USA.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses of four gene regions resolved the relationships of 15 species, including four new species of G. penicillata, the type species of the genus Grosmannia, from China, and identified a distinct taxon that is described here as G. xeno-abietina sp. Expand
Phylogeny and taxonomy of species in the Grosmannia serpens complex
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses of the ITS2-LSU, actin, beta-tubulin, calmodulin and translation elongation factor-1 alpha sequences revealed that these morphologically similar isolates represent a complex of five cryptic species, and G. serpens sensu stricto thus is redefined and comprises only isolates from Italy including the ex-type isolate.

Resolving taxonomic and phylogenetic incongruence within species Ceratocystiopsis minuta
Ceratocystiopsis minuta (Siemaszko) H.P. Upadhyay & W.B. Kendr., originally isolated in Poland, is the type species of genus Ceratocystiopsis H.P. Upadhyay & W.B. Kendr. Species in this genus areExpand
The Ophiostoma clavatum species complex: a newly defined group in the Ophiostomatales including three novel taxa
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses of the ITS, βT, TEF-1α and CAL gene sequences revealed that the investigated isolates represent a complex of seven cryptic species, and confirmed that ITS data is insufficient to delineate species in some Ophiostoma species clusters. Expand
Taxonomy and phylogeny of the Leptographium olivaceum complex (Ophiostomatales, Ascomycota), including descriptions of six new species from China and Europe
TLDR
The aims of this study were to reconsider the delineation of known species, and to confirm the identity of several additional isolates resembling L. olivacea that have emerged from recent surveys in China, Finland, Poland, Russia, and Spain. Expand
Characterisation of synnematous bark beetle-associated fungi from China, including Graphium carbonarium sp. nov.
TLDR
The aim of this study was to identify a collection of ophiostomatoid fungi with synnematous anamorphs in China and results include several new fungus-host and fungus-insect associations. Expand

Two new Ophiostoma species with Sporothrix anamorphs from Austria and Azerbaijan.
The genus Ophiostoma includes numerous species of primarily insect-vectored, wood-staining fungi. Several anamorph genera that differ in their micronematous or macronematous conidiogenous cells haveExpand
Multigene phylogenies of Ophiostoma clavigerum and closely related species from bark beetle-attacked Pinus in North America.
TLDR
The higher variability of the protein coding genes and the congruity in their phylogenetic results suggested that these genes may be better markers for identifying closely related species. Expand
Notes on Ceratocystis brunnea and some other Ophiostoma species based on partial ribosomal DNA sequence analysis
TLDR
The data showed that C. brunnea is a valid species that should be transferred to Ophiostoma, demonstrating that DNA data can compensate for the presumed or actual lack of morphological features lost during ei- ther long-term culturing or disintegration of holotype specimens. Expand

A molecular phylogenetic reappraisal of the graphium complex based on 18S rDNA sequences
TLDR
A taxonomic reappraisal of Graphium was undertaken using neighbour-joining and fast DNA maximum likelihood methods and compared with traditional classifications and Graphium penicillioides (the lectotype species) was found to be related to the Microascales, not the Ophiostomatales as previously believed.

Phylogenetic relationships in Leptographium based on morphological and molecular characters
TLDR
Results indicate that there are three groups within Leptographium based on DNA sequence analysis, and there was, however, no congruence between these groups and those emerging from morphological characters. Expand
Taxonomy of Ophiostoma radiaticola sp. nov. (Ophiostomatales, Ascomycetes), the teleomorph of Pesotum pini, isolated from logs of Pinus radiata
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses of aligned ITS 2/partial LSU rDNA, partial β-tubulin and partial actin DNA sequences demonstrate that O. radiaticola is a phylogenetically distinct species most closely related to O. cainii and O. galeiformis, with which it shares many morphological characters. Expand
The polyphyletic origins of ophiostomatoid fungi
TLDR
Results support the convergent evolution of long-necked perithecia, scattered evanescent asci and galeate ascospores in non-fissitunicate perithecial ascomycetes. Expand
Two divergent intragenomic rDNA ITS2 types within a monophyletic lineage of the fungus Fusarium are nonorthologous.
TLDR
The results suggest that the ancestral ITS2 types may have arisen following an ancient interspecific hybridization or gene duplication which occurred prior to the evolutionary radiation of the Gibberella fujikuroi complex and related species of Fusarium. Expand
