Key ResultTwenty-six species of microfungi are treated, the majority of which are associated with leaf spots of Corymbia, Eucalyptus and Syzygium spp. (Myrtaceae). The treated species include three new genera, Bagadiella, Foliocryphia and Pseudoramichloridium, 20 new species and one new combination.

Genera of diaporthalean coelomycetes associated with leaf spots of tree hosts
Four different genera of diaporthalean coelomycetous fungi associated with leaf spots of tree hosts are morphologically treated and phylogenetically compared based on the DNA sequence data of the

Eucalyptus microfungi known from culture. 2. Alysidiella, Fusculina and Phlogicylindrium genera nova, with notes on some other poorly known taxa
TLDR
A new combination is proposed for Microsphaeropsis eucalypti in Readeriella, while new cultures, hosts and distribution records are reported for Cytospora diatrypelloidea, Mycosphaerella swartii, Plectosphaera eucallypti and Valsa fabianae.
Foliicolous Mycosphaerella spp. and their anamorphs on Corymbia and Eucalyptus
TLDR
In this study new Mycosphaerella teleomorph states are described for Nothostrasseria dendritica and Trimmatostroma excentrica and two new hyphomycete genera are introduced.
Host specificity and speciation of Mycosphaerella and Teratosphaeria species associated with leaf spots of Proteaceae
TLDR
During the course of this study, epitypes were designated for several important species, namely Batcheloromyces leucadendri, B. proteae, Catenulostroma macowanii, Mycosphaerella marksii, Teratosphaeria bellula, T. jonkershoekensis, T., parva, and T. proteAE-arboreae.
Pseudocercospora flavomarginata sp. nov., from Eucalyptus leaves in Thailand
TLDR
Lesions associated with this disease are very characteristic, with chlorotic margins and masses of brown conidiophores occurring predominantly on the abaxial lesion surface, and results showed that the fungus represents an undescribed species of Pseudocercospora flavomarginata.
Botryosphaeriaceae occurring on native Syzygium cordatum in South Africa and their potential threat to Eucalyptus
TLDR
Results of this study illustrate that species of the Botryosphaeriaceae, including N. mangiferae, were more pathogenic on the Eucalyptus clone than on S. cordatum, while B. dothidea and L. gonubiensis were the least pathogenic.
Diversity of fungi on six species of Gramineae and one species of Cyperaceae in Hong Kong
TLDR
No single saprobic fungus collected in this study is thought to be specific to any one grass, however, certain fungi tended to reoccur on single grass species, but not on adjacent grasses, and a comparison of the fungi occurring on grasses with those on other monocotyledonous hosts is made.
Eucalyptus microfungi known from culture. 1. Cladoriella and Fulvoflamma genera nova, with notes on some other poorly known taxa
TLDR
A study of microfungi associated with living Eucalyptus leaves and leaf litter revealed several novel and interesting taxa that are newly reported for species of Pestalotiopsis.
Phylogeny and taxonomy of obscure genera of microfungi
TLDR
Several families are shown to be polyphyletic within some orders, especially in the Capnodiales, Chaetothyriales and Pleosporales.
Niche sharing reflects a poorly understood biodiversity phenomenon
TLDR
Results of this study highlight a remarkable fungal biodiversity that can occur within a very specific niche and emphasise the importance of verifying the identity of fungal isolates in culture, as many taxa, especially those of the Capnodiales, frequently co-occur in the same niche, lesion or leaf spot.
Phylogenetic and morphotaxonomic revision of Ramichloridium and allied genera
TLDR
The phylogeny of the genera Periconiella, Ramichloridium, Rhinocladiella and Veronaea was explored by means of partial sequences of the 28S (LSU) rRNA gene and the ITS region and a new genus, Radulidium, is erected.
