Cercosporoid fungi (Mycosphaerellaceae) 3. Species on monocots (Poaceae, true grasses)

A treatment of taxa on monocots of cercosporoid fungi, covering asexual and holomorph species with mycosphaerella-like sexual morphs on true grasses (Poaceae), which were excluded from the second part.

Identification and Characterization of Pseudocercospora Species Causing Grapevine Leaf Spot in China

A phylogenetic analysis based on a combination of LSU, ITS and ACT loci, coupled with morphology, showed that Pseudocercospora vitis is the sole causal agent of this leaf spot disease in China.


Three dematiaceous leaf inhabiting fungi viz. Cercospora adenostemmae Togashi et. Katsuki, Cercospora gerberae Chupp & Viegas, andCercospora helianthicola Chupp &Viegas, have been collected and

Pseudocercospora rizhaoensis sp. nov. Causing Leaf Spot Disease of Ligustrum japonicum in China

A new species named Pseudocercospora rizhaoensis on Ligustrum japonicum is introduced herein based on morphology and molecular data of combined ITS, LSU, act, tef1 and rpb2 sequences.

ITS2 sequence–structure phylogeny reveals diverse endophytic Pseudocercospora fungi on poplars

It is suggested that internal transcribed spacer 2 sequence–structures could become as additionally significant loci for species phylogenetic and taxonomic studies on Pseudocercospora fungi, and that Pseudokerospora endophytes could be important roles to PseudOCercOSpora fungi’s evolution and function in ecology.

Notes for genera: Ascomycota

This work is intended to provide the foundation for updating the ascomycete component of the “Without prejudice list of generic names of Fungi” published in 2013, which will be developed into a list of protected generic names.

The numbers of fungi: are the most speciose genera truly diverse?

16 genera from the top 40 most speciose genera as listed in Species Fungorum are examined as case studies to examine the diversity of taxa in each genus and critically evaluate the number of species in these genera.

Species diversity of Pseudocercospora from Far East Asia

The genus Pseudocercospora as presently circumscribed was found to be monophyletic, while the secondary barcodes, actA, tef1, and rpb2 were shown to be well suited to delimitate species within the genus.



Cercosporoid hyphomycetes on hosts of the Annonaceae: Cercospora annonaceae and Isariopsis annonarum revisited

Type material of Cercospora annonaceae and several collections assigned to this species by C. Chupp have been re-examined. The status of this species as a member of the genus Stenella is confirmed,

Species concepts in Cercospora: spotting the weeds among the roses

No single locus was found to be the ideal DNA barcode gene for the genus, and species identification needs to be based on a combination of gene loci and morphological characters.

The genus Mycosphaerella and its anamorphs

Based on phylogenetic analyses of the ITS-I, 5.8S and ITS-2 DNA sequence data of 46 species of Jvfycosphaerella species (58 strains), one large cluster was distinguished containing primarily taxa with cercosporoid anamorphs, as well as another smaller cluster for species with DissoconiUlilAnamorphs.

Phylogenetic lineages in Pseudocercospora

Partial nucleotide sequence data for three gene loci, ITS, EF-1α, and ACT suggest that the majority of these species are host specific, indicating that the application of European and American names to Asian taxa, and vice versa, was often not warranted.

Morphological and culture characteristics along with ITS DNA barcodes are provided for all taxa.

Multiple evolutionary origins of the fungus causing Panama disease of banana: concordant evidence from nuclear and mitochondrial gene genealogies.

Testing whether lineages of the Panama disease pathogen have a monophyletic origin by comparing DNA sequences of nuclear and mitochondrial genes indicates Panama disease of banana is caused by fungi with independent evolutionary origins.

New Australian disease record: Pseudocercospora dodonaeae on Dodonaea spp.

New illustrations of Type and Australian specimens of Pseudocercospora dodonaeae are presented with an expanded description of the fungus.

ITS primers with enhanced specificity for basidiomycetes ‐ application to the identification of mycorrhizae and rusts

ITS1‐F/ITS4‐B preferential amplification was shown to be particularly useful for detection and analysis of the basidiomycete component in ectomycorrhizae and in rust‐infected tissues.

A method for designing primer sets for speciation studies in filamentous ascomycetes

A simple method is described for designing primer sets that can amplify specific protein-encoding sequences in a wide variety of filamentous ascomycetes. Using this technique, we successfully desig...
