During a survey of the mycobiota of selected Brazilian ferns we discovered a new genus of Parmulariaceae causing tar spot-like symptoms on leaves of Thelypteris serrata (Thelypteridaceae). The new genus and species, decribed as Rhagadolobiopsis thelypteridis, differs from morphologically similar species of Rhagadolobium in possessing colorless, aseptate ascospores and a hymenial gel that does not become blue with iodine. In addition this is the first record of a fungus on T. serrata, and the… 

A new Inocyclus species (Parmulariaceae) on the neotropical fern Pleopeltis astrolepis

During a survey for fungal pathogens associated with ferns in Brazil, a tar spot-causing fungus was found on fronds of Pleopeltis astrolepis and it was concluded that the fungus is a new species, described here as Inocyclus angularis sp.

Novel fungi from an ancient niche: cercosporoid and related sexual morphs on ferns

A taxonomic study of cercosporoid fungi collected on ferns in Brazil results in a total of 21 frond-spotting taxa, which were identified based on morphology, ecology and sequence data of five genomic loci.

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.

Studies on Parmulariaceae I. A phylogeny based on available sequence data; introducing Parmulariales ord. nov., and Hemigraphaceae, Melaspileellaceae and Stictographaceae fam. nov.

The phylogenetic tree generated from maximum likelihood and Bayesian analyses of combined LSU-SSU sequence data demonstrate the relationships among Hemigrapha, Inocyclus and Parmularia species, and the relations of Buelliella, Karschia, Labrocarpon, Lembosia, Melaspileella,Melaspileopsis and Stictographa.

Taxonomy and ecology of epifoliar fungi

Character analysis of a combined LSU, SSU and rpb2 dataset shows that epifoliar fungi have different taxonomic and evolutionary relationships in Ascomycota.

Character evolution of modern fly-speck fungi and implications for interpreting thyriothecial fossils

This is the most comprehensive systematic study of thyriothecial fungi and their relatives to date, and parsimony analysis of the matrix of character states of modern taxa provides an objective basis for interpreting fossils, leading to insights into morphological evolution and geological ages of Dothideomycetes clades.

Cretaceous Fungal Scutella from the Lower Potomac Group Zone 1: Stomatothyrium placocentrum gen. et sp. nov., a Dothideomycete Colonizer of Conifer Stomata

A new fungal sporocarp type consisting of radiate scutella growing from the stomata of leaves of a conifer in a survey of dispersed plant cuticles from the Lower Cretaceous of Virginia is found, and its unique morphology suggests that S. placocentrum gen. et sp.

Refined families of Dothideomycetes: orders and families incertae sedis in Dothideomycetes

A refined updated document on orders and families incertae sedis of Dothideomycetes is provided, including an updated description, notes, including figures to represent the morphology, a list of accepted genera, and economic and ecological significances and phylogenetic trees for each order.

Towards a phylogenetic reappraisal of Parmulariaceae and Asterinaceae (Dothideomycetes)

An LSU rDNA phylogenetic analysis was performed indicating the correct phylogenetic placement of the Asterinales within the Dothideomycetes, and it is clear that the Parmulariaceae as currently circumscribed is polyphyletic, and that the Asterinaceae and ParmULARiaceae are related, which justifies the maintenance of the order Asterinale.



Additions to the mycobiota of the invasive weed Miconia calvescens (Melastomataceae)

Observations of damage to M. calvescens caused by these seven fungal species did not indicate any potential for use in classical biological control, but it became evident that additional agents are needed to achieve adequate control.

Where are all the undescribed fungi?

Data is presented on the expected numbers of fungi in some relatively unexplored habitats, such as tropical forests, and those obligately associated with plants, lichens, and insects, to conclude that enormous numbers of unrecognized fungi can be found almost everywhere, including one's own backyard.

CARACTERIZAÇÃO DENDROMÉTRICA DE Dicksonia sellowiana Hook. EM POVOAMENTO DE Araucaria angustifolia (Bertol.) Kuntze

The natural occurrence of D. sellowiana in an Araucaria angustifolia stand in the municipality of Rio Negro, Parana State is characterized using dendrometric variables after silvicultural intervention (clipping) to reveal its importance for the management of the species.

The fungi: 1, 2, 3 ... 5.1 million species?

Technological advances make it possible to apply molecular methods to develop a stable classification and to discover and identify fungal taxa, revealing a monophyletic kingdom and increased diversity among early-diverging lineages.

The magnitude of fungal diversity: the 1.5 million species estimate revisited * * Paper presented at

The consensus of tropical and molecular mycologists in particular is that an increased estimate could be justified, however, it is prudent to retain 1‐5 M as the current working hypothesis for the number of fungi on Earth while additional data to test it further accumulates.
