Abstract Myrothecium sensu lato includes a group of fungal saprophytes and weak pathogens with a worldwide distribution. Myrothecium s.l. includes 18 genera, such as Myrothecium, Septomyrothecium, Myxospora, all currently included in the family Stachybotryaceae. In this study, we identified 84 myrothecium-like strains isolated from turfgrasses and their rhizosphere. Five new species, i.e., Alfariapoae, Alf.humicola, Dimorphisetaacuta, D.obtusa, and Paramyrotheciumsinense, are described based on…

New fungal canker pathogens of apple trees in Iran
Results of the pathogenicity tests on detached shoots of ‘Golden Delicious' and ‘Red Delicious’ cultivars showed that isolates of P. formosus were pathogenic only on ‘ Red Delicious” cultivar, but Pa. foliicola isolates were Pathogenic on both cultivars and showed symptoms of infection.
Leptosphaerulina species isolated from golf turfgrass in China, with description of L. macrospora, sp. nov.
Pathogenicity test revealed that the three Leptosphaerulina species identified in this study cannot infect live/healthy turfgrass tissues of Poa pratensis and Agrostis stolonifera and only produced pseudothecia on the dead leaves of stressed seedlings.

Paramyrothecium eichhorniae sp. nov., Causing Leaf Blight Disease of Water Hyacinth from Thailand
This new species is introduced based on morphological and molecular evidence and placed the fungus in a strongly supported clade with other Paramyrothecium species in Stachybotryaceae (Hypocreales, Sordariomycetes).
Effects of Biogas Slurry Combined With Chemical Fertilizer on Soil Bacterial and Fungal Community Composition in a Paddy Field
The observation of the alteration of some bacteria- and fungus-specific taxa provides insights for the proper application of biogas slurry combined with chemical fertilizer, which has the potential to promote crop growth and inhibit pathogens.

Fungal diversity notes 491–602: taxonomic and phylogenetic contributions to fungal taxa
This is a continuity of a series of taxonomic and phylogenetic papers on the fungi where materials were collected from many countries, examined and described and DNA sequence data is analysed from concatenated datasets to infer phylogenetic relationships and substantiate systematic positions of taxa within appropriate ranks.
