Phylogenetic placement of Bahusandhika , Cancellidium and Pseudoepicoccum (asexual Ascomycota)

  author={J. Pratibha and Ashish Prabhugaonkar and Kevin David Hyde and D. Jayarama Bhat},
Most hyphomycetous conidial fungi cannot be presently placed in a natural classification. They need recollecting and sequencing so that phylogenetic analysis can resolve their taxonomic affinities. The type species of the asexual genera, Bahusandhika, Cancellidium and Pseudoepicoccum were recollected, isolated in culture, and the ITS and LSU gene regions sequenced. The sequence data were analysed with reference data obtained through GenBank. The DNA sequence analyses shows that Bahusandhika…

Lentimurisporaceae, a New Pleosporalean Family with Divergence Times Estimates

A new hyphomycetous genus Lentimurispora is introduced, characterized by micronematous conidiophores, monoblastic conidiogenous cells, and muriform, lenticular conidia with dark brown central cells and paler peripheral cells and the results showed that the new family was diverged approximately 78 (49–118) MYA.

Distribution and phylogeny of Mycosisymbrium cirrhosum

The multi-gene phylogenetic analysis shows that Mycosisymbrium is a well-supported sister genus to Ochroconis and Verruconis in the family Sympoventuriaceae of the order Venturiales.

Molecular phylogeny of Speiropsis pedatospora

Speiropsis pedatospora, an aero-aquatic fungus, was isolated from submerged plant litter in freshwater streams from India and positioned in the family Weisneriomycetaceae, as a sister group to Tubeufiales in the DothideomycETes, instead of its current placement in the order Jahnulales.

Mycoenterolobium aquadictyosporium sp. nov. (Pleosporomycetidae, Dothideomycetes) from a freshwater habitat in Thailand

Phylogenetic analyses based on a combined LSU, SSU, ITS, TEF1-α, and RPB2 loci sequence data support the placement of Mycoenterolobium aquadictyosporium close to the family Testudinaceae within Pleosporomycetidae, DothideomycETes.

Checklist of Algerian fungi – Part 4: Sordariomycetes (Ascomycota)

This checklist is the first comprehensive species list fully dedicated to Algerian Sordariomycetes, represented in the country by at least 189 genera and 470 species.

Species concepts of Dothideomycetes: classification, phylogenetic inconsistencies and taxonomic standardization

Four commonly used species concepts, focusing on morphological, ecological, biological and phylogenetic criteria and their applicability in the taxonomy of Dothideomycetes are reviewed.

Refined families of Sordariomycetes

This treatment of the class Sordariomycetes provides up-to-date DNA based phylogenies for 45 orders and 163 families and provides general descriptions and illustrate the type genus or another genus, where the placement has generally been confirmed with molecular data.

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.

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.



Cancellidium pinicola sp. nov. from Pinus massoniana and its phylogeny

Parsimony analyses indicate that the isolate may be closely related to other unitunicate ascomycetes especially Podostroma, Hypocrea and Trichoderma (order Hypocreales), but it is equivocal whether this is a pure isolate of C. pinicola.

Phylogenetic and morphotaxonomic revision of Ramichloridium and allied genera

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.

Berkleasmium crunisia sp. nov. and its phylogenetic affinities to the Pleosporales based on 18S and 28S rDNA sequence analyses

Berkleasmium crunisia sp. nov. is described from a decaying rachis of Calamus sp. (Arecaceae) from Khuan Ka Long, Satun Province, Thailand. This Berkleasmium species differs morphologically from

Phylogeny and taxonomy of obscure genera of microfungi

Several families are shown to be polyphyletic within some orders, especially in the Capnodiales, Chaetothyriales and Pleosporales.

Family placement of Ascotaiwania and Ascolacicola based on DNA sequences from the large subunit rRNA gene

Based on morphological characters, production of different anamorphs, and the sequence analysis, it was found that Ascolacicola differs from Ascotaiwania, which was most closely related to the Sordariaceae.

Based on the multigene phylogenetic analysis, the suborder Massarineae is emended to accommodate five families, viz.

Aquaticola, a new genus of Annulatascaceae from freshwater habitats

Two new Aquaticola species are described based on specimens found on submerged wood collected in streams and a reservoir in Hong Kong, similar to members of Annulatascus, but differ in having smaller ascal apical rings, and overlapping uniseriate to biseriate ascospores that are also smaller in size.

Towards incorporating anamorphic fungi in a natural classification – checklist and notes for 2011

A complilation of anamorphic names for both Ascomycota and Basidiomycota is provided which comprises 2895 genera, revealing that 73 genera and 95 anamorph-like genera are linked to teleomorphic genera names, while for more than 1592 genera no teleomorph link is known.
