The core species of the family Planistromellaceae are included in the teleomorphic genera Planistroma and Planistromella and the connected anamorphic, coelomycetous genera Alpakesa, Kellermania, and Piptarthron. These genera have been defined primarily on the basis of ascospore septation or number of conidial appendages. Due to a lack of DNA sequence data, phylogenetic placement of these genera within the Dothideomycetes, evaluation of monophyly, and questions about generic boundaries could not…

Taxonomy and phylogeny of hyaline-spored coelomycetes

The present study revises the classification of the hyaline-spored coelomycetes and provides a modern taxonomic framework based on both morphology and phylogeny.

Families in Botryosphaeriales: a phylogenetic, morphological and evolutionary perspective

Six main lineages were resolved in the phylogenetic analyses and these correspond to six groups as defined on morphology of the sexual morphs, which evolved during the Late epoch of the Cretaceous period and survived the catastrophic event that led to the mass extinction of non-avian dinosaurs.

Resolving Tiarosporella spp. allied to Botryosphaeriaceae and Phacidiaceae

The type species of the genus Tiarosporella , T. paludosa , is epitypified and confirmed as a member of the Botryosphaeriaceae. Based on morphology and DNA sequence data of the large subunit nuclear

Phylogenetic lineages in the Botryosphaeriales: a systematic and evolutionary framework

Molecular clock dating on radiations within the Botryosphaeriales suggests that the order originated in the Cretaceous period around 103 (45-188) mya, with most of the diversification in the Tertiary period.

Taxonomy and phylogeny of dematiaceous coelomycetes

This paper illustrates, describes, and provides taxonomic notes for 235 dematiaceous coelomycetous genera, including five new genera viz.

Planistromellaceae (Botryosphaeriales)

Abstract In this paper, we re-examine, re-describe and illustrate all sexual generic type specimens of Planistromellaceae including Comminutispora agavacearum, Eruptio acicola, Loratospora

Allelochaeta (Sporocadaceae): pigmentation lost and gained

Allelochaeta is revealed to include taxa with both branched or solitary appendages, that could be cellular or continuous, with conidia being (2–)3(–5)-septate, hyaline, or pigmented, concolourous or versicolourous.

The Botryosphaeriaceae: genera and species known from culture

It seems likely that all of the older taxa linked to the Botryosphaeriaceae, and for which cultures or DNA sequence data are not available, cannot belinked to the species in this family that are known from culture, and will have to be disregarded for future use unless they are epitypified.

How important are conidial appendages?

The genus Dinemasporium is used as a case study to evaluate the importance of conidial appendages for generic level classification of coelomycetous fungi, and morphology alone is rejected as informative at the generic level.

Endophytic and pathogenic Phyllosticta species, with reference to those associated with Citrus Black Spot

DNA sequence analysis of the nrDNA internal transcribed spacer region and partial translation elongation factor 1-alpha (TEF1), actin and glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GPDH) genes resolved nine clades correlating to seven known, and two apparently undescribed species, suggesting that endophytic, non-pathogenic isolate occurring on a wide host range would be more correctly referred to as P. capitalensis.

Phylogenetic lineages in the Botryosphaeriaceae

DNA sequence data of the 28S rDNA is employed to resolve apparent lineages within the Botryosphaeriaceae and 10 lineages are recognised, including an unresolved clade including species of Camarosporium/Microdiplodia.

Reassessing Vermisporium (Amphisphaeriaceae), a genus of foliar pathogens of eucalypts

Results from DNA sequence data analyses of the nrDNA-ITS and 28S nrRNA genes for species of Vermisporium indicated the genus to be a synonym of Seimatosporium, a revision of the genus based on fresh collections and dried herbarium specimens.

USING RPB 1 SEQUENCES TO IMPROVE PHYLOGENETIC INFERENCE AMONG MUSHROOMS ( I NOCYBE , AGARICALES )

This multigene study indicates that Inocy be is a monophyletic group composed of at least four distinct lineages—subgenus Mallocybe, section Cervicolores, section Rimosae, and subgenus Inocybe sensu Kühner, Kuyper, non Singer.

DNA phylogeny, morphology and pathogenicity of Botryosphaeria species on grapevines

It is concluded that B. australis, B. ribis and B. stevensii are more virulent than the other species studied, confirming earlier suggestions that the generic concept of Botryosphaeria should be expanded to include genera with septate ascospores and Diplodia anamorphs.

Using RPB1 sequences to improve phylogenetic inference among mushrooms (Inocybe, Agaricales).

This multigene study indicates that Inocy be is a monophyletic group composed of at least four distinct lineages-subgenus Mallocybe, section Cervicolores, section Rimosae, and subgenus Inocybe sensu Kühner, Kuyper, non Singer.

A class-wide phylogenetic assessment of Dothideomycetes

A genomic comparison of 6 dothideomycete genomes with other fungi finds a high level of unique protein associated with the class, supporting its delineation as a separate taxon.

Phylogenetic relationships of agaric fungi based on nuclear large subunit ribosomal DNA sequences.

Phylogenetic relationships of mushrooms and their relatives within the order Agaricales were addressed by using nuclear large subunit ribosomal DNA sequences to provide a framework for future systematics studies in the Agaricalses and suggestions for analyzing large molecular data sets.
